Steve Aoki Shares New Single And Announces 2023 Tour Dates

Two time Grammy-nominated artist and producer Steve Aoki has shared a fiery new single New York with multi-platinum DJ and producer Regard – who has amassed a worldwide following since the release of his chart-topping 2019 hit Ride It – and alt-pop artist mazie.

Together on New York, the upbeat dance club jam joins mazie’s dreamlike, twisted musical tendencies through a seamless combination of Regard’s unmistakable production and Aoki’s high-powered creativity for a song that arrives just in time to become the pop anthem to kick off the new year.

Coinciding with the release, Aoki has also announced a string of winter U.S. dates for the HiROQUEST: Genesis Tour. This will be his first proper tour since the pandemic halted live shows and Regard will be joining him as a supporting act.

The 12-city run kicks off on Feb 22 at Montreal's New City Gas and sees Aoki headline venues across North America in cities including Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Chicago and several others. The tour wraps in New York on March 16 at Terminal 5. Complete tour routing can be found below, while ticket information can be found here.

The new music and tour announcement arrive on the heels of HiROQUEST: Genesis, Aoki’s expansive world-building album which included an array of collaborations from Kane Brown to Taking Back Sunday and Georgia Ku, MOD SUN, Bryce Vine, Santa Fe Klan, Lil Xan, Goody Grace, and more. During a limited CD pre-sale for HiROQUEST: Genesis, trading cards were available as an insert and a staggering 27K+ CDs sold. Aoki also graced recent covers of Entrepreneur Magazine, Electronic Musician, and Adweek as their “Visionary of the Year.”

The world Aoki is creating with his ongoing HiROQUEST brand is an ever growing extension of himself and his worldwide community, further cementing his reputation as a boundless creative artist who seeks connectivity through collaboration, welcoming all into his universe.
