Tiësto visited Miami Beach this past weekend to show off his latest studio album ‘A Town Called Paradise'. First stop was the iHeart Radio Ultimate Pool Party at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel where he was featured alongside other superstars such as Iggy Azalea and Ariana Grande. Next up was Story, one of Miami Beach's premiere destinations for first-class DJ/producers. Story is known for their sophisticated light shows and impeccable sound system mixed in with top-notch VIP treatment, not to mention beautiful women in every direction.
Upon arrival, attendees received special Tiësto wristbands just like at his album release party at Terminal5 NYC (link). Assuming they were for the same purpose, I knew we were in for quite the show. Eventually, 1:30 came around and Tijs took to the booth. The dance floor was literally packed, sparing no shoulder room for anyone. Anticipation was at an all-time high and the crowd was ready to go wild for Tiësto.
Having already garnered an immense collection of top EDM hits, Tijs came to Miami to do one thing, put his latest album on full display during one of his electrifying sets. His finest moment was when he threw down his #1 single off the record, “Red Lights”. Remember those wristbands I told you about? Well as soon as the track began we all noticed our wrists flashing a glow of red. The crowd below me looked like a sea of lava flowing to the waves of the song with all in attendance shouting out their favorite lyrics word for word. I can honestly say this was a moment I will never forget and always hold dear to my heart.
Tiësto put on display an epic 2-hour set filled with some of his new material and some of his old. Track after track he continued to keep everyone moving with his own blend of originals and remixes. With such a large fan base, Tiësto has the capability to command large crowds and make it look simple. He is a true master of his craft and has continued to make incredible strides throughout the many years he has been creating music. Do yourself a favor and check out one of his live shows. You are sure to be impressed! Also, we have a very special interview with the man himself about his work for the Global Poverty Project.
