Internationally touring artists Galantis will team up with Uber tonight for an exciting, unprecedented secret show in New Orleans. Fans can only acquire passes within the Uber app by entering the promo code “GALANTIS.” At 6 p.m. this evening fans will be able to swipe the blue bar at the bottom of their app to choose the “GALANTIS” option. If connected, fans will be picked up (along with up to 3 friends) and driven to a secret location for the one-night performance. Tickets are free and Uber will cover the cost of fans’ rides to the concert. Requests must come from this coverage zone, and the show is 18+.
Galantis is performing in support of their new album The Aviary—out now via Big Beat Records—which debuted as a Top 10 album in 23 countries including the number one record in Japan, as well as the number one dance album in 17 countries. Billboard magazine hailed, “In true Galantis fashion, their latest output embraces warm pads, bright percussion and soaring vocals that confidently skate between dance and pop.”
While their 2014 debut album, The Pharmacy, was recorded in a secluded studio in the Stockholm archipelago, The Aviary came together in a constant touring climate. For Galantis, the key to their artistry’s evolution occurred while embracing change. Christian Karlsson points to an epiphany he had while visiting an actual aviary in Hong Kong that helped inspire the new album’s namesake.
As part of Uber and Galantis’ ongoing partnership with MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), they’ll be making a charitable contribution to the Louisiana chapter of the organization. The hashtag for the event is #UberSecretShow.
Additionally, Galantis have confirmed The Aviary Tour with U.S. dates throughout the fall. Stops include the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, and Stubb’s in Austin, with more shows to be announced soon. See below for full details.
