Last night, April 21, Gesaffelstein played the second of his first two live sets in four years at Coachella, returning to the hallowed grounds where he began his extended hiatus in 2015. His ironclad return, while spectacular, left audiences still yearning for more than a mere hourlong set, leading to rampant, hopeful speculation regarding an impending tour.
Today, April 22, Michel Lévy has answered his fans’ calls in an uncharacteristically prompt fashion, with the announcement of a new US tour, “Requiem.” More characteristically, the French artist’s tour confirmation is laconically cryptic, stating only, “Against the night. Across the time. A truth, a sermon, a sacrifice.”
Due to the high-budget spectacle of his Coachella performance, it seems reasonable to assume that the forthcoming tour — which kicks off at New York’s Governors Ball in late May — will be an extension of the past two weekends’ sets. However, with Gesaffelstein, one must always expect the unexpected, so only time will tell.
Presale for the Requiem tour begins Wednesday, April 24 at 10:00 AM (PDT). General Onsale begins Friday, April 26 at 10:00 AM (PDT). Tickets will be available on Ticketmaster.
