The Fillmore Detroit
We were on site to cover night number one of three for the deadmau5 lots of shows in a row tour. When entering the venue to find our spots in the sold out crowd a large black curtain could be seen hanging blocking the concert goers from seeing the much anticipated Cube 2.1.
First up was Mau5trap artist FEEDME. Talking to some other fans in the crowd, they were ecstatic when FEEDME was announced as direct support to deadmau5. Many of who we spoke to were equally as big of fans for both artists on the bill. FEEDME got the fans into the night with his energetic dance beats and keeping on the mic to speak to the crowd. With not much of a set change needed we were able to jump almost right into the deadmau5 set.
With the curtain still hanging, the lights already dimmed, the music began from behind the curtain. Then through the curtain and faint line of light could be seen traveling up and around, outlining what would be one of the biggest DJ stage set ups to be seen. Finally the drop hit and the curtain fell, revealing Cube 2.1 and Joel Zimmerman, aka deadmau5, at the peak of the cube. At this point he did not have his mau5 head on but he was still receiving just as much energy from the crowd as if he were in full garb. Playing new hits from his W:/2016ALBUM/, as well as his most popular songs from previous albums.
Watching and interacting with the crowd everyone seeming to be having a great time. Many dancing and singing along to each song. Many entranced by the 17 ft. tall cube and its graphics projecting from the many movable LED panels. Joel’s fiance, Kelly Fedoni, could be seen hanging out and dancing the night away at the soundboard.
After the three night stop in Detroit, the tour will take deadmau5 to Seattle next, then on to stops in California ending in Chicago.
