HOUSTON, April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- NightCulture Inc. (OTCBB: NGHT) presents Nero (www.thisisnero.com) and the 'Second Reality' tour this Friday, April 27 at the Bayou Music Center, formerly Verizon Wireless Theater, (www.bayoumusiccenter.com) in Houston, TX. Supporting the UK dubstep duo will be LA based moombahton producer and remixer Dillon Francis (www.dillonfrancis.com). NightCulture once again teams up with Live Nation (NYSE: LYV) and Disco Productions to bring another exciting EDM act to Houston.
Nero is comprised of British-born producers, remixers, DJs, and artists Dan Stephens and Joe Ray, who are joined by dynamo singer Alana Watson for their live concerts, which find them performing high atop a custom-built booth consisting of ghetto blasters, retro TV's, old amps, and an arcade machine centerpiece.
Nero is touring in support of Welcome Reality, which was released to rave reviews by Cherrytree/Interscope Records in December. With its thunderous bass, hail of house rhythms, lightning flashes of rave synths, and showers of guitar, the album "pulls dubstep toward the arena-pop spotlight without leaving its shadows behind," as the New York Times put it in its review, while Billboard noted that Nero "comes off like a dubstep-powered pop band."
Released in the U.K. in August, Welcome Reality debuted at No. 1 and rapidly earned Gold status, fueled by its singles "Innocence," Guilt," "Promises" (which also stormed straight to the top of the UK charts) and "Me and You," which was the most played record on Radio 1 for three weeks in a row and is now the first U.S. single from the album. Nero's indie/dubstep hybrid smash Me and You Remix EP is also currently available digitally, and features a brand-new remix of "Me And You" by Steve Angello of Swedish House Mafia, and a Skrillex remix of "Promises" (previously unavailable in the U.S.) that has racked up more than 10 million plays on YouTube.
With nominations from BBC's Sound of 2011, XFM's Sound of 2011, and Music Week's Top 15, Nero also won 2010's Beatport Award for Best Dubstep Act and Best Dubstep Track for "Act Like You Know." The duo have performed at all the major UK music festivals including Glastonbury, Bestival, Reading, and Wireless, and still found the time to produce remixes for The Streets, La Roux, deadmau5, N*E*R*D and Daft Punk.
Tickets are still available and can be purchased online through Ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster retail outlets as well as the Bayou Music Center Box Office or by calling 800-745-3000. For hard ticket orders please email [email protected] to be put in touch with a local representative.
