The Paradise Again 2022 World Tour is the group’s first world tour since 2012 and while San Antonio didn’t make the cut, Austin, Dallas and Houston are all on the list.

The announcement comes on the heels of their new song with The Weeknd called Moth to a Flame which was released Thursday night.

Tickets for all the Houston and Dallas shows go on sale at 10 a.m. on Oct. 29 while tickets for the Austin tour date will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Oct. 27.

Swedish House Mafia will play in Austin on Aug. 25, Dallas on Aug. 26 and Houston on Aug. 27.

Swedish House Mafia is a trio of DJs from Sweden who officially formed in 2008 before going on to be one of the most successful house music groups of the 2010s.

They split in 2012 but it appears their back, once again, and will be releasing an album Paradise Again, sometime in late 2021.
