The jaunt will wrap with a special show planned for Saturday, November 22 at the world-famous Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, CA. At the legendary Palladium expect GARETH EMERY to deliver one of his most memorable sets yet. He'll highlight material from his latest studio album DRIVE (Garuda) alongside some of his best back catalogue and favorite tracks of the moment. Anticipate special guests to join and incredible state of the art production.
EMERY is currently supporting "Dynamite," the third single from his latest album DRIVE. "Dynamite" features Christina Novelli, the voice of one of EMERY's most successful tracks "Concrete Angel," and it booms with her angelic vocals sweetly delivering the chorus "Like a blazing light/ready to ignite/we are made of dynamite" helmed by explosive builds alongside a gentle piano. Its corresponding video was captured at this past year's sold-out Ultra Music Festival in Miami highlighting one of EMERY's most captivating performances to date as well as the beauty of Florida's most glamorous cities.

The inspiring story behind DRIVE--which hit #1 on iTunes' Dance Chart in both the U.S. and Canada, and #27 on the overall chart upon its release April 1--is derived from EMERY's 3000-mile adventure across the Oklahoma/ Texas border on Old Route 66. Exemplified by his deep and purposeful musicality, adept songwriting skills and ability to convey emotion through sound, EMERY has created a unique blend of house, trance and electro that is explored fully on DRIVE. Other singles from DRIVE include the beautiful and ethereal "U" featuring Bo Bruce, and the full bodied Beatport Top 10 club banger "Lights and Thunder" with Krewella.
'Drive – An American Road Trip' is the largest tour of GARETH EMERY's career to date. He will drive to some of the shows TBD, stopping at many markets he didn't get to on his previous tour earlier this year including Minneapolis, Madison, Pontiac, Tampa, Chico and San Luis Obispo. The 27+ date journey also includes two back-to-back- shows at Webster Hall in New York City and a Las Vegas residency play at Marquee.
