Fans of forward-thinking hip hop received quite a treat in 2013 when conceptual supergroup Deltron 3030 returned to deliver their sophomore album Event 2. It had been 13 years since Dan the Automator, Del the Funky Homosapien, and Kid Koala dropped their futuristic self-titled debut album, but it was worth the wait -- Event 2 and the accompanying tour were the stuff of legend, highlighting the group's knack for cutting edge sounds and next-level performances. Deltron 3030 may hail from another millennium, but fans can catch them in the present on their must-see tours.
Deltron 3030 was formed in 1999 by rap legend Del the Funky Homosapien and producers Dan the Automator and Kid Koala. The group's conceptual 2000 debut album told the story of an epic battle between Deltron Zero (Del's alter ego) and a cabal of evil corporations out to suppress hip hop. The highly creative, sample-heavy album was a hit with critics and fans, landing on numerous year-end lists and peaking at No. 13 on BIllboard's Heatseekers Albums Chart. As the group's members continued to pursue their own projects in the mid-'00s, rumors of the pending release of their sophomore album began to swirl as early as 2006. It wasn't until 2013 that the highly anticipated album Event 2 hit shelves, once again winning over critics with an arsenal of special guest appearances from performers Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zack De La Rocha, and Damon Albarn. Veteran entertainers who know how to get the party started, Deltron 3030 continue to treat fans to a taste of the future on their unforgettable tours.
