Chinese-American electronic musician ZHU has announced the 2019 DUNE Part II Tour which kicks off in Madison, Wisconsin on Feb. 12. The tour is in support of his second full-length album Ringos Desert which was released on Sept. 7, 2018. The 23-city trek covers the eastern half of the United States through March 19 where the tour concludes in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
During the DUNE Part II Tour, ZHU will visit some of the United States' most popular venues. Among those include Cleveland, Ohio's Agora Theatre on Feb. 23 (Tickets). Tickets for the event go on sale Dec. 7 at 10:00 a.m. and prices run $30 to $35 for the show that kicks off at 8:45 p.m. ZHU will also visit the historical National Theater in Richmond, Virginia on March 7 with ticket prices at $29.50 (Tickets). Built in 1923, The National once was part of a block full of venues and today is the only auditorium remaining while the others are facade only. The venue was acquired by AEG Live in 2014 after being renovated and reopened in 2008 following its closure in 1983.
ZHU will continue his travels through several dates in North Carolina before heading to Georgia, Florida and Louisiana.
The latest album, Ringos Desert, features the singles "My Life" and "Coming Home" and was originally an EP set for installments upon its April release but was released as a full album five months later. ZHU is most known for his hit single "Faded" which peaked at No. 1 on the US dance charts and earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording.
