After being voted 2012 America’s Best DJ, Markus Schulz was honored at Las Vegas’ Marquee Club with a massive ABDJ closing party this past October.

But heading into a busy 2013, he’s ineligible to win this year’s honor—ABDJ champs can’t win two years in a row. Still, the Miami-based trance DJ/producer is certainly allowed to take a victory lap.

And that’s just what he’ll be doing between now and May 11 on his North American SCREAM Tour (aka America’s Best DJ Victory Tour). Along with opening acts Khoma and The M Machine, Schulz will hit 18 different cities on a rock-n-roll-type bus tour, playing a variety of venues and bringing top-notch stage production and music.

But what makes this development all the more exciting is that we’ll be getting regular blog updates from the tour detailing the glories and the hijinks of the road.

Our on-the-bus correspondent Sarah Gianetto will send her first entry next week, as she preps us for the Markus Schulz North American SCREAM Tour. So make sure you visit our America’s Best DJ site regularly to keep up with all the action and find out when Markus Schulz is coming to a venue near you.
