DJ Pierre announces he is to perform as Phuture in the upcoming tours



DJ Pierre has just announced he is to perform as Phuture in the upcoming tour dates, after the sad passing last week of founding member DJ Spank-Spank.

He wrote on facebook: I am committed to perform as PHUTURE in the upcoming tours that were booked prior to DJ Spank Spank‘s passing. I thought long and hard on how to make this show work without Spank-and the most natural choice for me was Angel Alanis. When Spank and I got back together we cited Rio (lothario lee) as part of our production team and Angel Alanis as part of our touring team but a silent tour member. Spank and I were the only actual touring ones but these two held a very important role in helping us get back on the road. Angel was instrumental in helping putting the show together as Phuture live from the bare minimum. From nothing. He was there from the very beginning of the Phuture live tours. He knows the show, is an artist in his own right so understands from an artist’s perspective the importance of giving an amazing performance. Out of all the people who could pull this off I believe that Spanky would only be comfortable with Angel filling in.
The amazing thing that I would like to share with you is that we will include Spanky in the shows. Technology gets a win there. We are already working on how we can give you the same experience as if Spank were here. I know you will be pleasantly surprised. Please support the effort. Support the shows because that will in the end help Spank’s family.

We will donate a portion of the shows to his family and in some shows we will use those as a farewell moment to my friend and my brother. Looking forward to sharing this with you all.
