Porter Robinson just announced the first ever VIRTUAL SELF headline tour. Porter has been touring festivals as VIRTUAL SELF since he launched the glitchy alias late last year but a full-on North America headline tour shows us that he’s ready to take this project to the next level. The first show Porter played as VIRTUAL SELF was in a warehouse in Brooklyn and it gave us a glimpse of the visionary production and forward thinking music that this project brings together to put on a mind-blowing show.
Porter cryptically teased at a tour earlier this week by hiding the GPS coordinates of venues in the forum section of the VIRTUAL SELF website and fans quickly pieced together that something big was on the way. The full reveal includes 12 new shows, two of which are “[CLUBSYSTEM]” shows that the website describes as an “intimate club show”. Check out the dates below and sign up for presale tickets here. Keep an eye out for more dates to be announced, the website says the west coast should be getting some shows. Enjoy!
