Born Sunny John Moore in January 1988, electronica extraordinaire Skrillex is a completely down-to-Earth and highly-coveted DJ who has been through his share of ups-and-downs. Born in Los Angeles, moved to San Francisco at the age of two and moved back to the City of Angels at the age of 12, Skrillex was exposed to an array of entertainment and infused with sense of fearlessness.
He couldn’t have possibly dreamed that Skrillex concert tickets would one day sell out in a matter of minutes when he withdrew from public school at the age of 14 and got into a homeschooling program in order to escape relentless bullying. His taste for the alternative world led him to attend many punk rock and underground shows in some of the more ethnic regions of Los Angeles in the years around the turn of the century. Ironically, many of the folks he danced alongside in packed crowds are now scooping up tickets for Skrillex shows all over North America.
The man often called Sonny Moore began to develop a knack for dropping some of the most intense and engaging beats in the DJ scene around 1998. Just after his 20s birthday, he was included in the list of main acts for the annual AP Tour, staged by Alternative Press Magazine. In the next couple of years, he toured as a soloist and with several electronica groupings, selling many cheap Skrillex concert tickets along the way and attaining hard-to-come by praise and recognition in a genre flooded with wannabes and pretenders.
Many credit him for popularizing dubstep music in North America and giving it a face and a name that the public could latch onto. Fans who have followed his music for years and swooped up Skrillex tickets to shows from Las Vegas to Miami are often surprised to learn that he is a soft-spoken, genuine and engaging man during interviews and behind-the-scenes glimpses. He is thrilled that tickets for Skrillex concerts have become so popular, and very appreciative of those in the business who have put in the hard work to pave the way for performers like him to thrive in the modern-day mainstream.
