We are friends tour!
With his gigantic mouse mask, deadmau5 (real name Joel Zimmerman) has been a key figure in the EDM revolution of the past decade. Purveyor of immersive, heart-pounding electronica, that now sees him headline music festivals worldwide, he has six Grammy Award nominations to his name and has over the course of his career collaborated with the likes of Kaskade, MC Flipside, Rob Swire of Pendulum, Skrillex, and Steve Duda.
This year sees him celebrating the 11th edition of his well-known compilation series on the 'We Are Friends' tour which is dubbed to be an experience like no other.
DID YOU KNOW?
The name deadmau5 originates from an incident where a mouse crawled into his computer and died. He then posted on an internet forum of his shenanigans, and the members began calling him TheDeadMouseGuy. Dead Mouse was too long for an IRC login name, so he abbreviated it to 'deadmau5'.
