Tiesto at LIV December 29
Tiësto. Unless you've lived under a soundproof rock since the mid '90s, you know this Grammy-nominated Dutch beatmaker is one of the biggest electro acts of the modern dance era. He's been crowned world's best DJ a staggering three consecutive times. Dude's a light-eyed bpm pimp, the 40th greatest Dutch citizen of all time, and an all-around dance-floor deity.
At 42, he's nine years older than Jesus was when he died, and he has far more disciples. If EDM were a religion, Tiësto would be its Messiah. But electronic dance music is not a tax-exempt religious organization. In fact, the only similarity between Christianity and the electro scene is that it's gonna cost you a lot of money to get close to God.
For $300, you can celebrate life — club Life, to be exact — with Lord Tiësto when the Dutch master rolls through LIV this Thursday. And joining him will be fellow countryman Nicky Romero, a 22-year-old DJ-producer who represents the bright future of dance music and about 15 percent of the ticket price.
At least it's cheaper than Tiësto's $25,000 New Year's Eve last year, right?
