It comes in the form of their joint Paradise Lost tour, hitting the Magic City on February 14 at Grand Central. The local date is part of an eight-city Florida sprint that'll take them to Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, and Fort Lauderdale, among other stops.
We can count this tour as a homecoming of sorts considering both Diplo and Sleigh Bells have strong South Florida (Broward and Palm Beach, to be exact) connections. And in his current roll as producer of the moment, Diplo visits Miami pretty often to clock in studio time.
The Miami date will take place a full three days after the Paradise Lost stop at Revolution. (It doesn't take that long to travel from Fort Lauderdale to Miami, does it?) Maybe, though, the lag is intentional, seeing that February 14 is the same day Sleigh Bells drops its sophomore release, Reign of Terror.
