deadmau5's famed We Are Friends compilation series has been transformed into a new live experience.
For years, deadmau5 has used his We Are Friends releases to showcase the incredible music producers that release music on his flagdhip mau5trap label. Now, he's using his platform in an even bigger way.
Coming this summer to 14 cities across the United States is the inaugural "We Are Friends Tour," which is dedicated to the next generation of mau5trap stars. Bensley, BlackGummy, EDDIE, HNTR, Kasablanca, Lamorn, Lupa, Morgin Madison and No Mana will all take the stage on various dates throughout the tour.
But deadmau5 won't be the only veteran hitting the road. Featured on every stop will be longtime collaborators and legendary bass music outfit NERO.

The "We Are Friends Tour" poster also reveals that the 11th volume in mau5trap's namesake compilation series will be released later this year. While specific details pertaining to the upcoming album are not known at this time, it's safe to assume a handful of the artists joining deadmau5 on the tour will be featured.
For the new tour, the mau5trap boss will give the owners of his head5 NFT collection a special opportunity. According to a press release, guestlist spots will be reserved for some owners of the head5 collection and that "all attendees at each show will be gifted an NFT badge commemorating the tour."
deadmau5's "We Are Friends Tour" will kick off on Friday, July 15th at The Met in Philadelphia. Tickets to the tour go on sale Thursday, April 28th at 10AM local time.
