In an interview with Live for Live Music, Markus Schulz shared some details about the upcoming Scream Tour that should be exciting for many cities along the way. Unless you’re in a big city chances are your local club or concert hall doesn’t have more than a standard lighting rig unless a tour like this comes through. The original Scream USA Bus Tour press release had mentioned that they would be travelling with full production but the way it’s described here brings a new level of excitement. Personally, I’ll be attending the April 12 date in Buffalo, NY (click here for tickets/info) and a setup like this is rare for most dj’s that come through the city.

On his upcoming cross-country bus tour:
“Well you know what..the idea behind it is, a lot of these cities I’ve been to, some of them I haven’t been to, but one of the things is, a lot of these cities when I goto them, they don’t have like, LEDs, or lasers or whatever…so I’d ask the promoter ‘hey, why can’t we get some LEDs for the night?’, and he’d say ‘well we have to get them shipped in from California or here or there…we don’t have them in our city’. So the idea behind this tour was to take our production, and take to these cities a show that people in Ibiza see all the time, or in New York City, or here in Miami. And the only way to really do that is to travel with a crew and bring your own stuff. So, you have to do it by a bus.
It’s going to be really exciting, you know. One of the cool things is when you look out at the audience and you know they’re experiencing something for the first time. This is the first time they’re seeing a production like this. You just see it in people’s eyes and it’s really exciting. For me, doing this bus tour is going to be really cool just to see those people’s eyes when they see the production for the first time.”
