[News] Cosmic Opera breaking NY history

In current weeks we have seen upheavals in the dance scene especially in megapolis such as New York and Las Vegas. In New York we’ve recently seen the superstar group, The Swedish House Mafia turn the legendary venue Madison Square Garden into a club full of fans listening to the group “fuck that club in the pussy. ” One member of the group is going to shortly follow up to the event by hosting an series of events called Cosmic Opera.

The event Cosmic Opera started with a teaser video of a girl walking though a hallway to find dancers and performers. Leaving the group of people to watch the video stunned, and confused of what was going to happen next. With clues it was discovered that the event would take place at the Hammerstein Ballroom (only New York venue they were following on twitter). But the venue wasn’t an issue more of who is going to play and what is going to happen if i go.

The who is none other than Axwell titled “ring master” of the event. He will take the event and make it into three, six hour long, “acts” that will combine the technology used on Skillex and Deadmau5 tours with the human side of performers and acrobats around the room to create a feel like none have seen before. Combining classical opera aspects into the new house music concerts is clearly the next revolution in the Dance Scene.

Justin Cohen the concert organizer describes his event will consist of a story line with actors mingling in the crowd. He also says the event will be visually striking and has a high quality team of collaborators to help oversee production. He also elaborates with “Lasers will be mounted on a custom-built truss shaped like an oversized chandelier which will rise and turn above the audience. And the room will have a disorienting whirl of images know as 3D maping.

The next question about the event is tickets, since in New York we’ve seen the Swedish House Mafia tickets at Madison Square Garden go past 1000$ after being immediately sold out (obviously people who didn’t get the groups memo: “if you don’t know don’t go” went anyway). Well Cohen already gave some information about this, if you don’t buy from stub hub your bill will be less than 100$ and the tickets will be on sale Tuesday the 17th at 10 a.m.

Now if you are defiantly going to miss the event don’t worry. Cohen already talked about two other planed concerts in April & May. He also described “The goal is to build a brand, I think of Cirque du Soleil as where I got the inspiration from.” Check out the preview below with more info to come soon.

UPDATE 1: More information about tickets have been annouced! The pre-sale at 10am that is open to everyone on Tuesday at 10am will have limited 60$ tickets, while the General sale will go on Weds. at 10am. 3 opening acts have also been booked but the names have not been revealed sources say that Tommy Trash is one of the 3, but this is not deffinate. Last a new video has surfaced with Axwell’s version on In My Mind as the music to a few clips of his shows. Let’s go to the Opera!

UPDATE 2: With a second date announced and with the second day sold out the supporting actings for the superstar have been announced. First to back up Axwell will be the duo No ID. After that will be extraordinaire Thomas Gold, followed by Deniz Koyu both known as the break though artists of 2011 and artists to watch in 2012. All three DJs are bound to bring down the house with their different styles and preferance of music. I have my tickets and can’t wait to go to the Opera!
