Tickets for Röyksopp’s upcoming North American tour, that kicks off in two weeks, are selling briskly with their Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Montreal concert dates already completely sold out. If you want to try to score tix for their San Francisco show (March 28 at Grand Ballroom @ Regency) or their LA show, the final gig of the tour, on March 29 at The Wiltern (both with Jon Hopkins opening), my advice is get them while you can.

Known for putting on great shows, on this tour the 13 year strong, acclaimed Norwegian electronic two-man group, whose sound has constantly evolved through various strains of electronic styles, will feature a lot of music from their current album, Senior; released in September on Wall of Sound.

Recently, the duo, comprised of high school pals Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland, invited fans to submit music videos for tracks off the ethereal sounding Senoir as part of the Genero.tv competition. The results were wide ranging interpretations including the winning video above for the second single, “Forsaken Cowboy,” and the ones below for the album tracks "The Fear" and  "Coming Home."
