Tiesto’s Club Life Tour hits Washington, DC in a huge way. Saturday April 9, 10,000 fans will pack into the DC Armory, for a grand scale electronic music experience. The DC Armory is located at 2400 East Capitol Street, SE and the event will last from 6pm to 2am allowing an 18 and over crowd. Tickets can be purchased on Glow’s website and start at $40 with VIP tickets available.
Perhaps the most well known electronic dance music DJ, Tiesto is no stranger to DC with Glow and Panorama Productions hosting events since 2001, he has amazed clubbers with his most memorable DC appearance in 2007 on his Elements of Life tour where he preformed outside to 8,000 fans.
“It’s been great to see Tiësto grow from our first event, to packing the clubs, to the outdoor show, one of our proudest moments, and now coming full circle to this. Tiësto outdoors was groundbreaking for DC Nightlife. This time it will be even more impressive!”
– Antonis Karagounis | Owner | Panorama Productions, Glow
The ultra-busy DJ turned the playing of trance music into an artform whose achievements are unsurpassed. Just after releasing his second studio album Just Be in 2004 at the Summer Olympics, he performed live at the opening ceremony in Athens, Greece, becoming the first DJ to play live on stage at an Olympics.
Tiesto has sold millions of records worldwide, collaborated with Nelly Furtado, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Goldfrapp and been crowned the world’s top DJ for three consecutive years by DJ Magazine. His Elements of Life album reached number one on the Dutch album chart as well on Billboard Top Electronic Albums in the U.S. and received a nomination for a Grammy Award in 2008. He was also nominated for two 2010 Billboard Touring Awards (alongside Lady Gaga and Justin Beiber) and listed in Billboard’s Top 25 biggest grossing global touring acts of 2010.
Tiesto has embraced the dance music community on a massive scale and that earned him the title of Greatest DJ of All Time in the February issue of the U.K. dance-music magazine Mixmag. Most recently, Tiesto began his residency at Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and will be dropping his Club Life mix album April 5.
