During their highly anticipated reunion at Ultra Music Festival back in March this year, Swedish House Mafia announced “we’re Swedish House Mafia for good this time”. Now they have begun to tease future plans but are yet to release any concrete details for us as to when they’ll hit the road and drop new music.
We expect the details to be teased over the next six months leading into 2019 and Axwell may have slipped a comment to support that during a recent Axwell /\ Ingrosso show in New York, when he jumped on the mic and said;
“Should we cancel the Swedish House Mafia gig planned for next year? Because I’m not sure they are ready for Swedish House Mafia in New York.”
Steve Angello confirmed that they would indeed have a tour in 2019, responding to Swedish publication ‘Sydsvenskan’ after they asked a SHM related question in an interview;
“It’s happening, obviously,” he said in the interview (translated from Swedish). “Not all the details are set, but we will be back in 2019.”
If a tour in 2019 exists, it begs the question; why have a nine month gap between shows? After Ultra Miami, it seemed everything dance music was SHM. Now, not so much. Although when they do come back together in 2019, tickets are sure to sell out instantly. Dance music needs SHM, we are waiting patiently.
