This could be huge. It’s been eight months since Porter Robinson launched his new Virtual Self alias with his self-titled Virtual Self EP and published his cryptic website, but some new activity on the site’s separate forum may have just hinted at a Virtual Self tour.
Although Porter has made quite a few festival appearances as Virtual Self so far this year, we’ve been left wondering what the future of the side-project might look like – but today we may have just received a major hint. Yesterday (July 9), Virtual Self tweeted a pic of the homepage for virtualself.life. As this seemed a bit suspicious, fans began to flood the site only to find that it had been recently updated with what appeared to be GPS coordinates now present throughout the forum. Upon further inspection, reddit user agentfancy found that each coordinate corresponds to a specific venue across North America. While we're still waiting for more information surrounding the coordinates, it seems more than likely that Porter would go to such lengths to announce a tour. See the coordinates below and enjoy!
