Just saw him in Richmond on Friday... Besides the fact that every 16 year old in the place was rollin face, the show was amazing! You'll definitely be impressed with his stage setup... 12th Planet was on point too
my old band, Furthest From the Star opened for Sonny in Austin a few years ago...was a fun show, but i'm sure this will be different...although i have not listened to Skrillex and personally have no interest in doing so as I was not a fan of his solo stuff either. he was a really nice guy though.
i was his asst tour manager over the summer, and i saw the mothership tour when it came to atlanta. do yourself a favor and get a place to watch the show and enjoy the visuals. be open minded when it comes to the music and enjoy the experience. i had a blast, and although he is my friend my opinion might be bias, but the people i brought had a blast also and they were indifferent at first. have fun.
Insane amounts of energy and definitely a good time. I don't get the people saying he plays only dubstep cause that's wrong. Expect some DnB, a fair amount of electro, mainly it is skrillex style dubstep mixed with some moombahton. If you're up front you mosh if you're in the back you can chill. Is it an 18+ show? I've seen him at both 18+ and 16+ and the 18+ was better simply because of the crowd (less young drunk kids)
If you're into electronic music and know what makes a good dj, you might be disappointed. If you're not too into that scene, you'll enjoy the atmosphere. Seen him twice now, both in Chicago (one at Lolla) and wasn't overly impressed.
