Swedish House Mafia

BREAKING: Alesso to replace Steve Angello on 2018 Swedish House Mafia Tour

The news everyone has been waiting for has finally arrived, and a Swedish House Mafia tour is on the horizon. However, despite what was a heart pounding performance last week from the original trio – Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso – things look set for a shake up. With rumours of fall-outs in the SHM camp already emerging, it has been confirmed today that fellow Swedish producer Alesso will replace Steve Angello on the upcoming tour. Alesso, who previously worked with Ingrosso on their famous collaboration ‘Calling‘, is no stranger to the group having played as a support act on their ‘One Last Tour‘.

With four events confirmed already – Nameless Festival, Ushuaïa Ibiza, Tomorrowland, and Creamfields – it is not yet known whether these dates are the only dates planned this year. For the moment, though, it would appear that Swedish House Mafia will not play at Ultra Europe. The group have a number of other plans coming up, including the current ‘03 25 18‘ store, selling official Swedish House Mafia merchandise until Monday 2 April at midnight. The dates for the tour were also confirmed, with Steve Angello dropping out of each of the four events he was originally scheduled for.

It is not yet clear whether Angello will return to the group, but for now we can look forward to Alesso joining Axwell and Ingrosso as part of Swedish House Mafia. The Swede has enjoyed great success over the years, with hits including ‘If I Lose Myself‘ played on main-stages to this day, around 5 years from its original release.

We’re looking forward to seeing the new Swedish House Mafia, the only problem is that we won’t see Alesso in SHM, because its all a prank! Happy April Fool’s from We Rave You… have an Alesso throwback as an apology from us!
