Diplo To Open For Madonna On Select Dates
Last night marked the conclusion of the cross-Canada "Full Flex Express", an Electronic music tour which was headlined Jack Ü, a duo composed of Diplo and Skrillex. Despite releasing two albums (Jack Ü's Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü and Major Lazer's Peace Is The Mission), having an insane tour schedule (international dates as both Jack Ü and Major Lazer, the upcoming Mad Decent Block Parties, along with a few solo dates which include a residency at Las Vegas' XS Nightclub) and overseeing his Mad Decent label, it doesn't seem as if Diplo will be taking a break anytime soon.
One of the biggest projects that Diplo was involved with this year was Madonna's Rebel Heart album, for which he produced 7 songs. With Madonna's latest announcement, it looks like the two are not quite finished working together.
A post on Madonna's official website reveals that the producer will serve as the opening act for two of her upcoming tour dates. As of now, Diplo will be included on the tour September 9th-10th in which the Queen of Pop will perform at Montreal's Bell Centre. Said Madonna of the news:
“To have Diplo open for me is my dream come true. Montreal is about to TURN UP!!!! We Go Hard or We Go Home!”
No word as to whether or not Diplo will open for any of the other dates on the tour but seeing as how both Montreal shows are on their way to being sold out, each of the crowds are in for what is sure to be two insane shows! Who knows, maybe they'll even perform that Major Lazer re-work of "La Isla Bonita" that Diplo once previewed.
Tickets to both shows are available for purchase here.
