DJ Snake Shows Chameleon Colors In Electrifying 2021 Tour Debut
DJ Snake's return to the stage to kickstart his 2021 U.S. tour highlighted just how much his cachet has grown since we saw him last.
Immediately prior to the onset of the pandemic, February 2020, DJ Snake wrapped the biggest show of his career at the Paris La Défense Arena, performing in front of 40,000 people. It was an iconic moment, but no one could have expected the glacial freeze in momentum the music industry at large would sustain a mere month later.
As we're entering the other side nearly 16 months later, artists are beginning to reconnect with their audiences again—some more successfully than others. For DJ Snake, however, the start of the Chicago leg of his tour was met with a particularly warm welcome.
It was a statement-making night for Snake at Chicago's Radius club, but there were certainly potholes in his path. It was opening night of Lollapalooza and fans were in no shortage of options as to where they'd decide to end the night. However, despite being slightly off the beaten path of the festival's official after-show list, dance music fans had no trouble packing Radius wall-to-wall.
