DJ Z-Trip to Headline All Pro Tour to showcase 2K Sports’ All-Pro Football 2K8 Video Game
National tour to feature openers Aceyalone and Gift of Gab, with guest appearances on select dates from other contributors to All Pro, the game’s soundtrack
2K Sports announced today the All Pro tour, featuring headliner DJ Z-Trip, one of the world’s most celebrated DJs and producers. The tour kicks off on July 23rd in Sacramento, CA, and is heading coast-to-coast to showcase 2K Sports’ All-Pro Football 2K8 and the joint soundtrack release with Decon Records called All Pro. Joining DJ Z-Trip for roughly two dozen dates are Aceyalone and Gift of Gab, both of which appear on All Pro, the CD of remixes, mash-ups and original material that DJ Z-Trip produced for the game.
In addition to DJ Z-Trip, Aceyalone and Gift of Gab, other artists who appear on the soundtrack, such as Rakim and M-1, are expected to make guest appearances along the tour route. Beyond the rhymers and beats, tour stops will feature kiosks with All-Pro Football 2K8 and a multi-media component to DJ Z-Trip’s performance that integrates some of the game’s most intense plays.
“It’s rare when an artist can design an original soundtrack that integrates seamlessly into a video game and then transition that to a live setting,” said Tim Rosa, 2K Sports’ Director of Brand and Lifestyle Marketing. “DJ Z-Trip has accomplished this feat, so we’re excited to introduce his live mix show with various musicians and emcees from the soundtrack coupled with a live VJ kicking out visuals – this is going to be a sick show.”
