The elusive ZHU doesn't tend to do things as most would consider normal, instead he pushes the boundaries every step in his explosive new career. Just last week we reported on some Zhu posters popping up around NYC, and today have a confirmation on what they mean.
The two dates on the posters November 21st and 22nd are the dates marking ZHU's first ever series of headline live shows which will be known as THE NIGHTDAY EXPERIENCE taking place in NYC at still undisclosed locations.
We discover Zhu's love for fashion as the tickets will solely be available at the flagship high fashion store Opening Ceremony. Address is 35 Howard St. in the SoHo district. Tickets will be available this Thursday at 5:30pm EST. Ticket buyers will also receive a limited NIGHTDAY EP vinyl. (Only 2 tickets per person)
With how small we expect these shows to be, I wouldn't hesitate grabbing your own tickets as I'd expect a pretty fast sell out.
To celebrate the announcement, ZHU has also unveiled some impressive new visuals for the single "Paradise Awaits" from his NIGHTDAY EP. Watch the video below. Enjoy!

If you've followed our coverage on enigmatic producer ZHU since the release of "Faded" and "Moves Likes Miss Jackson" creations that didn't even bare the artists name, you know he doesn't do things exactly like everyone else. With a succesful Nightday EP and only a small run of high-profile live performances in Australia under his belt on the touring Listen Out festival (we covered the fan video), the buzz is high for ZHU's first set of headline shows following up his debut performance at HARD Day of the Dead later this month. Recently some interesting posters have begun surfacing in New York City that could indicate ZHU is making his appearance in the Big Apple soon.
A TSIS reader recognized the first poster on the corner of Thames & Vandervoot before snapping a photo and sending over to us. When we reached back out for more evidence, she sent us another photo of the same "Z" painted poster located on Wythe & 6th. While this certainly makes it evident that something is happening, we still can't be sure as to what. After all, ZHU remains unpredictable and shrouded in mystery. Could a new EP be on the horizon?
As you can see, ZHU's signature "Z" symbol is laid over a shot of the Brooklyn Bridge with two dates below November 21st and 22nd. Could this mark ZHU's first ever North American headline shows with the great city of New York being his intended destination? We believe so, and will be scouring the streets and internet for anymore info and will update this post as anything else comes in! As always, enjoy.

The Governors Ball NYC Music Festival 2013 Full Lineup : Impressive Lineup Including 50+ Acts on Randall’s Island, New YorkPosted in Bangin, Events, News by nick | Tags: Concert, kanye west, Music Festival, New York City, NYC, pretty lights, The Governors Ball
As the the year continues to kick off we get another incredible lineup for one of the summer’s biggest parties in America. The Governors Ball takes place every year in New York City at Randall’s Island, an actual island. The festival is taking place over the weekend of June 6th, 7th, and 8th. It seems to always have a massive lineup filled with big headliners to some of the best buzzing upcomers. The Ball’s lineup tends to be a great mixture of everything hip. From a great balance of hip-hop, electronic, indie, blues, folk, and other live acts. It seems to be a great alternative for those in the North East not looking to make the nationwide trek.
This lineup is insane. Not an event to miss for anyone within range!
