Hardwell Announces North American Arena Tour With Times Square Takeover

When you are the one of the biggest artists in the world, you need an entrance just as grand. Yesterday, worldwide renowned producer Hardwell announced the dates for his upcoming North American tour in New York City. Flashing the announcement on massive video screens high among the city during his morning takeover, Hardwell proved to his captivated audience that his performances will only continue to reach new heights.

Earning the number one spot in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll earlier this year, the Netherlands native will continue his reign with a touring live act, promoted exclusively by Live Nation and produced by ALDA Acts. Having already sold-out in over 19 countries, the I Am Hardwell tour will soon reach all corners of North America, touching down in cities such as Chicago, Miami, New York, Los Angeles and Vancouver.

A continuation of his critically acclaimed worldwide tour, I Am Hardwell came to fruition in Amsterdam last April, when the producer brought to life his vision of an unparalleled musical production and an immersion of fans via social media. The debut of I Am Hardwell was broadcast live to fans all over the world. While on his North American leg of the tour, Hardwell will continue his fan oriented mentality and forward thinking through his partnership with MTV Clubland. As his official media sponsor, MTV Clubland will grant pre-sale purchasers with exclusive content, such as backstage and behind the scene videos, as well as an opportunity to spend quality time with the producer during his final stop in New York.

Joining Hardwell as he journeys through North America is fellow Dutch producer Dannic. After moving up through the club scene with his crowd-pleasing mash ups, Dannic began to quickly rise among the ranks. After gaining support from fellow hometown heroes such as Tiesto, Dannic broke his way into the mainstream, wowing audiences all over the world with his vast array of musical knowledge and his innate abilities to read a crowd and understand their needs. With Dannic celebrating his first year in DJ Mag’s Top 100, Hardwell has found himself a worthy companion.

While general admission tickets go on sale Friday, June 27th in the United States and Friday, July 4th in Canada, Hardwell fans who sign up here will be the first to receive access to pre-sale tickets, starting a week in advance on Thursday, June 19th.

After releasing the first several pieces starting in October, Don C and Remy Martin concluded their "Just Remy" capsule collection at NBA All-Star Weekend.

The release party in Charlotte, North Carolina had guests such as Roc Nation's Lenny S., DJ Yasmina, Vintage Frames Founder/CEO Corey Shapiro, and others enjoying Remy Martin cocktails while taking a look at the entire collection.

“Just Rémy” is a capsule collection designed by Don C. that is slated to showcase both himself, basketball culture and the liquor brand's "unparalleled prowess and superior craftsmanship in the world of lifestyle," according to a press release.

The final piece of the collection is a black lambskin leather duffel bag with gold hardware, red python piping, and a gold embroidered “Just Rémy” logo. The final piece mirrors the previous pieces of the collection: a snakeskin designed-embroidered 1738 sneaker box with a bottle of Rémy Martin 1738 Accord Royal and Just Don shoelaces inside, followed by a snapback hat released in Los Angeles, a jersey release at Art Basel in Miami, and a Dopp Kit release in New York City at the end of January.

Sanaa Lathan Stars In Chilling Trailer For Jordan Peele’s ‘Twilight Zone’ Reboot

Sanaa Lathan stars in the chilling new trailer for Jordan Peele’s reboot of The Twilight Zone. Set behind a blood-curling instrumental, the mysterious teaser appears to center around the concept of time and numeric synchronicities.

The creepy clip also features Adam Scott, John Cho, Kumail Nanjiani, Tracy Morgan and Peele, who will host and produce the latest revival of the classic horror series through his Monkeypaw Productions imprint.

The Twilight Zone, created by Rod Sterling, debuted in 1959 and aired for five seasons. The show was rebooted in 1985, and again in 2002.

“I was terrified,” Peele told Variety last year of taking on the remake. “Why would I ever jump into the most established, pristine shoes in all of the genre? I could rip Twilight Zone off and call it something different and not be compared to Rod Serling. So I stepped away from it. And then several months later I got another call.”

It's a good thing that Peele faced his fears, because The Twilight Zone and his forthcoming horror flick, US, prove that he knows how to scare up anticipation.

The Twilight Zone debuts April 1 on CBS All Access. Check the video above for the trailer.

Amy Winehouse Hologram Tour Postponed Over “Unique Challenges”

Amy Winehouse's hologram tour is officially postponed, BASE Hologram, the company behind the digital production, announced via Twitter Tuesday (Feb. 19).

“In developing the type of highly ambitious, state of the art hologram/augmented reality theatrical event that would truly capture her genius and incredible artistic and social contributions, we encountered some unique challenges and sensitivities,” the company revealed.

The tour, originally scheduled to launch sometime this year, is delayed until BASE can “determine the best path to a creatively spectacular production that would properly honor Amy’s legacy.”

Mitch Winehouse, the “Back to Black” singer's father, announced the tour last fall, which was expected to feature a live band backing a digital projection of Winehouse.

Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in 2011, following a very public battle with addiction that ultimately cut her life short. Proceeds from the tour will benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, an organization that works to prevent “the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people.”

Read BASE Hologram’s full statement on the tour delay below.
