World-renowned, Grammy Award-winning producer/DJ BENNY BENASSI launched his Rough Road North American bus tour this week. Set to cross the U.S. and Canada with 16 dates, marking his largest string of consecutive shows on a single tour in his career, BENASSI will be joined by Pink Is Punk, Krewella and Congorock on various dates.
BENASSI will perform to an estimated 45,000+ people in just over two weeks, blazing a trail first through Texas with seven dates and then continuing across the country and up the West Coast through Tempe, Las Vegas, Oakland, Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara and all the way to Vancouver, the final stop on the tour.
Meanwhile, BENNY BENASSI and Rough Road tour mate Pink Is Punk recently released a new single “Perfect Storm” for Ultra Music. Listen to “Perfect Storm” at: http://youtu.be/wVJblz9UHMU.
BENASSI recently teamed up with Creative Allies to launch a T-shirt design contest to help commemorate the Rough Road tour, “Perfect Storm” and his incredible year overall. The winning design will be sold at his New Year’s Eve show (details TBA) and will also be made into limited edition merchandise that can be purchased online. The winner will also receive a cash prize and a T-shirt signed by BENASSI of the winning design. Deadline to enter the contest is November 27. For more information, visit: http://bit.ly/RIcLc6.
