Big Gigantic Announce 2013 Headlining Tour Dates

BIG GIGANTIC shows no signs of slowing down in 2013.  As the electronic duo wrap their current “Uprising Tour” this weekend with a sold-out show in Athens, GA, saxophonist/producer DOMINIC LALLI and drummer JEREMY SALKEN have just announced the dates for their 2013 headlining winter tour. The 24-date outing kicks off January 29 in Birmingham, AL and will take them throughout the south and east coast to such cities as Atlanta, Louisville, Columbus, Albany and Boston before playing New York City on February 16 at Terminal 5. Next, they’ll stop in New Haven, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Memphis, Austin, Houston and Dallas before concluding March 3 in Oklahoma City. Tickets go on sale today Friday, November 30. See below for full tour dates.

The Boulder, CO-based electronic act had quite a year in 2012. Their latest album NOCTURNAL was released in January via their own label Big Gigantic Records as a free download on their website and has already received over 250,000 downloads to date. LALLI and SALKEN then took on the U.S. festival circuit performing to rave reviews at such top festivals like Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Ultra Music Festival, Wakarusa, Hangout, Electric Forest, Camp Bisco, Governor’s Ball, Austin City Limits and Bonnaroo, where they were chosen as one of the “10 Must-See Acts” by Rolling Stone. As SPIN noted in their July/August issue, BIG GIGANTIC ranked among the Top 20 artists with the most festival appearances during the summer season. Their current “Uprising Tour” kicked off with a sold-out show dubbed “Rowdytown” at Red Rocks Amphitheatre September 29, marking their first headlining spot at their famed hometown venue. Justin Olsen from NITEGUIDE MAGAZINE best described their October 5 show at the House of Blues West Hollywood noting, “If there’s one word to describe a Big Gigantic show, it’s ‘Rowdy.’ Multi-tasking between playing drums, saxophone and DJing samples, Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken provide an EDM experience that’s unique and trendsetting in current times” (November). The 45-date tour has featured over 2/3 of sold-out shows and continues to receive critical acclaim with the press (see below).  Following the tour, BIG GIGANTIC will end the year with a handful of big shows including performances at “BassLights” with Bassnectar and Pretty Lights December 28 in Hampton, VA and the SnowGlobe Music Festival in Lake Tahoe on December 29. They’ll then ring in 2013 for the second year in a row in Chicago performing at the Aragon Ballroom on New Year’s Eve with support from GRiZ and Manic Focus, followed by performances in early January on both HOLY SHIP!! and Jam Cruise, marking the first band to ever play both cruises.
