Trance DJs: TIESTO

Hi all! Real clubbers know this name, TIESTO as a DJ God. And if you've had glow sticks in your hands at his show, you'd be raising it up in a 'T' formation!! hahaha! Who knows what I'm talking about? Yes! Tiesto is making his stamp as a DJ legend.
"Tiesto - one name means so much. A unique vision of trance music that has conquered the world. Topping the DJ list for three years, playing the opening ceremonies of the Olympic games, and selling out stadiums; Tiesto live is an amazing experience. At the Mansion in Miami, Tiësto rocked the crowd for a non-stop set that has already become the stuff of legend. Magnetic visuals, creative performance artists and a stunning vocal performance by Jes completed the scene for a magical evening."- About.com
This is at Disneyland. Yes, Disney land!:


"Tiësto's career is punctuated by landmark achievements – the first DJ in the world to sell out a solo stadium event for over 25,000 people 2 nights in a row, he scored a number one hit with his single Traffic, the first instrumental track to reach the top spot in his homeland of Holland in 23 years. His remix of Delerium featuring Sarah McLachlan's Silence was the first house track ever broadcast on daytime radio in North America, (it became an international dancefloor anthem and also spent eight weeks in the UK top 10 chart). He played live in front of billions of people during the Parade of the Athletes at the official opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Athens. But despite his meteoric success, Tiësto remains grounded about his achievements and clearly loves making and playing music above the accolades it brings."-from http://www.tiesto.com/
A DJ spinning a 90 minute set at the opening ceremonies of Olympics? It doesnt get any bigger than that. Thats 10 times bigger than any super bowl halftime show by any music artist!!
Here's video at the Olympic ceremony. Yes, he was asked by the Olympic committee, not the other way around. Yes, he is spinning live! It was heard and said he turned up the volume to the whole stadium when his home country, the Netherlands was introduced. I'm still looking for that footage! Share if you got a copy, pretty pleeeease!!
Be Happy,
