Finally, the dates and venues for the Deamau5 tour of SA has been announced: 1 December at Ratanga Junction (Cape Town), 2 December at Wavehouse (Durban) and 3 December at H20, Wild Waters (Johannesburg). Tickets go on sale Monday 3 October from Computicket. It's the first time that the electro and house producer from Toronto, Canada, is performing in South Africa. Deadmau5, whose real name is Joel Zimmerman, tweeted earlier this week, "honestly, ive never seen such excitement over this South Africa tour announcement... i seriously cannot wait to arrive! :D get ready!" The name "deadmau5" originated when Zimmerman found a dead mouse in his computer while he was replacing his video card. He discussed this with chat room users and became known as "that dead mouse guy." His nickname "Dead Mouse" was too long for the IRC character limit, and was then shortened to deadmau5. Ticket prices are as follows: Cape Town R300 - R500; Durban R300 - R500; Johannesburg: R330 - R1500. Tickets available from Computicket.
