It’s called the Full Flex Express and it’s certainly the most buzzworthy tour to be assembled yet for this summer. Skrillex, Diplo, Pretty Lights, Grimes, Koan Sound and Tokimansta are going on a tour of Canada, on a train. Because how else would such a band of eccentric, partying musicians travel? By bus? No. The railroad it is. I’m not the biggest fan of anyone except Grimes but this tour will be a shit ton of fun if you can grab tickets. It’s not just going to be a concert with six acts, but is being described more as a traveling, festival-style event. Dates below and tickets will presumably be available here soon.
7/13 Toronto, Ontario – Fort York
7/14 Ottawa, Ontario – Ottawa Blues Fest (without Grimes)
7/15 Montreal, Quebec – Parc Jean Drapeau
7/18 Winnipeg, Manitoba – Shaw Park
7/20 Edmonton, Alberta – Kinsmen Park
7/22 Vancouver, British Columbia – PNE Coliseum
Is it weird I’m a little stressed about Grimes touring with this lineup? I’m worried she will decide to date an artist, establish some kind of indie/dance power couple and then I will never be able to marry her :(
