Skrillex will hit the rails again next summer when he brings back his Full Flex Express train tour for five dates throughout Canada. The tour begins July 12th in Montreal, then swings through Toronto, Winnipeg and Calgary before wrapping up in Vancouver on July 21st.

The dubstep star inaugurated the Full Flex tour this past summer alongside some of EDM's biggest names, including Diplo, Pretty Lights, KOAN Sound, Grimes, Tokimonsta and Hundred Waters. Venues and supporting acts for next year's bashes will be coming in January, but tickets will be available through the Full Flex Express website starting this Friday and will cost just $49.95 until Christmas. 

Not that Skrillex won't be keeping busy until next summer's dates: After curating the With Your Friends Festival with Pretty Lights in Nashville October 26th and 27th, he's heading to Mexico in December for four shows from the 18th to the 22nd, including a massive End of the World gig at an ancient temple December 21st to celebrate the end of the Mayan calendar and the (alleged) impending apocalypse. 

Here are the dates for Skrillex's train jaunt through Canada:

7/12 Montreal, QC
7/13 Toronto, ONT
7/17 Winnipeg, MB
7/19 Calgary, AB
7/21 Vancouver, BC

Song Stories

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
