  • MySpace Tour Snags Justice, Diplo

    Tue, 08 Jan 2008 12:06:38

    Justice has been named as the headliner of MySpace's spring tour, a month-long trek that starts on March 3 in Austin and includes a surprising stop at Madison Square Garden—a major jump from the mid-sized clubs the duo's been DJing and performing at since the release of their debut LP this past July.

    Fancy—a French band heavy on the guitars and handclaps—will open every night with a rotating cast weaving in and out of all other supporting slots. And what a cast it is, including Chromeo, Diplo, and two of Justice's key label mates: DJ Mehdi and Ed Banger Records owner/Daft Punk manager Pedro Winter, a.k.a. Busy P.

    As for those of us that don't live in North America, Justice has also announced a string of worldwide shows leading up to their MySpace gig.
