Deadmau5 announces concert at The Armory in Minneapolis

The electronic master will play on Aug. 17.

The latest in a growing line of big acts booked at The Armory in downtown Minneapolis has been revealed.

Deadmau5 will play the recently-renovated venue on Friday, Aug. 17, with tickets going on sale this Friday at noon.

If you're not familiar with Deadmau5, he is Joel Zimmerman, a Canadian DJ/producer known for his progressive house and electronic music, and whose stage costume is the stuff of nightmares (see above picture).

Expect a frenetic set and a frenzied crowd as Zimmerman dons his trademark illuminated mouse head in the confines of The Armory.

He's the latest musical artist booked for the 8,400-capacity venue, the former home of the Minneapolis Lakers that before its recent renaissance was being used as a parking lot.

Last month, Live Nation was taken on to book and program events for The Armory, which re-opened in December ahead of the Super Bowl.

On the schedule this summer are acts including Slayer, the Dropkick Murphys, Paramore, Ice-T, Jack White and Rise Against.
