Swedish House Mafia have canceled five additional stops on their “Paradise Again” tour. This news comes three months after canceling three other shows in New Jersey, Minnesota, and Arizona.
The house music supergroup has slashed five additional stops, including on July 31 at Amway Center in Orlando, August 2 at Madison Square Garden in New York, August 9 at TD Garden in Boston, August 11 at Verizon Arena in Washington, CD, and August 17 at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.
The European section of the “Paradise Again” tour, which kicks off on September 29, is selling really well. In fact, they’re outperforming US ticket sales, according to Digital Music News.
Many have suspected that it’s low live ticket sales; however, Live Nation told Billboard that low ticket sales wasn’t correct. Digital Music News notes that Swedish House Mafia have not toured in more than a decade, so they don’t have accurate data for ticket demand.
Earlier this spring, Swedish House Mafia teamed up with IKEA to create quality products that don’t hurt the bank.
“The topic of making music at home was a new world to many of us at IKEA, so it’s been challenging and a lot of learning,” Friso Wiersma, IKEA’s designer, says in an IKEA blog post. “But it’s so nice to work with people like the guys in Swedish House Mafia. They have a strong creative vision in everything that they do, and they’re people who, in a good way, want to have control over every small little detail. As a designer, I’m the same. I’m meticulous. I love solving and thinking about even the smallest little stitch in a bag. It’s been a really good match in that sense.”
On top of artistic fashion for producers, the trio returned with the release of their Paradise Again album. The album came at a time when the industry needed another shock get re-spark everyone’s hope for a better future. The trio split up years and focused on their own solo efforts, but the need for a reunion was far to much to hold back on.
