With Europe gripped in a snow blizzard running an international music tour brings it own share of headaches and MTV star and master of the dance floor, Joel Zimmerman, more commonly known as Deadmau5, knows that the smallest and biggest detail can bringing everything to a crashing halt. The ramifications of cancelling performances, delayed starts, faulty equipment, dissappointed fans are all aspects that need to be micro managed to get them over the hurdles.
Deadmau5 experienced one of those OMG moments when he discovered earlier this week he needed a special firewire cable for his rig setup for the evening concert in Cardiff. His legions of fans world wide, would have been unaware of the stress levels leading up to the concert when Deadmau5 realised his “we have a problem Houston”
