On December 14, DJ Shadow was asked to step down from the decks at Mansion Nightclub during the middle of his set. According to reports, the promoter said his set was, “too futuristic”. Fans were not shy of voicing their dismay towards the club, shocked that the promoter would ask the legend to stop playing. Mansion Nightclub has issued a public apology stating, “We offer our most sincere apologies to DJ Shadow and his fans for his set being cut short at Mansion this past weekend. This error should not have happened and will not happen again, especially as we pride ourselves on creating an environment that cultivates and respects innovators such as DJ Shadow. We have learned a lot from this error and made changes within our organization to ensure that Mansion’s vision, and the vision of our guests, will never be compromised again.”
The Miami stop was one of the last dates during his sold out All Basses Covered Tour which saw DJ Shadow play in Madison, Chicago, Boston, Detroit, New York, New Orleans, and more in support of his current releases, Reconstructed: The Best Of DJ Shadow and Reconstructed: The Definitive DJ Shadow on Universal Music Enterprises.
DJ Shadow plays one more show before the end of the year on December 29 at Fort Mason Center for Wintersalt in San Francisco.
