Major Lazer Plot World Tour With Angel Haze

Carl Williott | January 8, 2013 8:58 am

Major Lazer‘s Free the Universe drops on February 19, and soon after they’ll be heading on tour in North America and Europe in support of the album. Diplo‘s island dance crew will hit the road on February 28 in Toronto and work their way through the US and Canada, before hopping over to Europe and finishing up in May. They’ll be supported by disser extraordinaire Angel Haze, as well as Dragonette and Lunice of TNGHT.

But, you guys! Diplo and Azealia Banks are buddies, so WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN now that he has enlisted Banks’ newest nemesis? Is he taking sides? Probably not — we’re guessing both parties feel Banks is too big to be the opener (even though, as Angel Haze would certainly attest, Banks’ debut album seems interminably delayed). Anyway, check out the tour poster GIF and full list of dates below.
