Deadmau5's upcoming UK tour will surpass the visual spectacle of Daft Punk live shows, his label claims.

The dance artist – real name Joel Zimmerman – showcased a new LED mask at Coachella Festival in California last weekend and will bring it to the UK next week.

Together with a huge LED backdrop, the innovative mask, designed by Warren at Keillor Films in Toronto, features an impressive 946 Tricolour LED’s distributed over 32 rows.

There are no eye holes – instead video glasses provide vision from a camera installed at the front base of the head.

This also plugs into the computers he uses to perform on stage so they also display information directly the video glasses.

A press release claims of the show: “Taking Electronic Music performances to a whole new level, the show eclipses even Daft Punk's previous efforts.”

London O2 Brixton Academy – April 30, May1/2
Glasgow Barrowland Ballroom – 4
