Prydz Sells Out 4 of 9 Show Dates in Only First Day of Ticket Sales For Spring Tour
Ticket sales for Eric Prydz shows are frequently swift, short lived affairs, with Friday, January 13th’s ticket sales for Prydz’s recently announced mini North American tour being no exception.
The spring tour features nine dates, kicking off at Washington D.C.’s Echostage, and concluding at LA’s Factory 93 on April 8th, making the brief tour a near month-and-a-half long club spinning ceremony. Tickets went on sale on Friday at 12 PM for all shows but the final LA show, for which an official sale date for tickets is still awaited.
Prydz not surprisingly swept ticket sales across various states, selling out four venues on the first day of sales alone. Among the localities to rapidly sell out are Brooklyn, where Prydz is set to play a secret warehouse show on March 4th, Club Space in Miami, where Prydz will host an Ultra “afterparty” on March 25th, Kingdom in Austin, where Prydz will play on March 31st, and It’ll Do in Dallas, where Prydz—all jokes aside—will appear on April 1st.
A visit to Ticket Master in search of tickets for Prydz’s March 2nd show at Toronto’s Uniun yielded an automated message, “inability to locate tickets.” The message may indicate that the Toronto show is additionally sold out, a supposition that remains unconfirmed. If the Toronto show is indeed sold out, that would mean that Prydz sold out a total of 5 out of 9 dates, or in other words, approximately 56% of the tour.
While Prydz did not sell out shows in DC, New Orleans, and Houston, he still did exceedingly well in ticket sales for the respective cities. Tier one of GA admission for Echostage sold out rapidly at $30, while tickets at the tier two price ($40) still remain. Tier one of New Orleans show tickets likewise sold out, whereas tier two continues to be available for purchase. Prydz’s March 30th show at Stereo Live in Houston successfully sold out various tiers, including GA tiers 1-2, and VIP tier one. GA tier three and VIP tier two tickets are available. Prydz appearances in New Orleans and Texas are especially infrequent, meaning that tickets should eventually sell out as the dates approach.
Following Prydz’s announcement of a forthcoming 2017 album, the spring tour could be Prydz’s platform for sampling new tracks or works in progress on his audiences. And if that’s so, you’ll want to be there to witness it.
