NEW YORK, NEW YORK—Named by DJ Magazine as one of the best DJs in the world for over 10 years, the legendary DJ and producer Armin Van Buuren has just announced the cities & dates of his upcoming 2014 world-tour, Armin Only – Intense, which is set to debut at New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden on April 11, 2014.
The artist’s new world-tour has been inspired by Armin’s latest album, Intense. Armin Only, a concept that began early in Armin’s career, has now grown to magnanimous proportions and will include: an exclusive, six hour DJ set from the legendary artist, stunning live performances, dancing acts, and top-notch technical effects that have never been used at any EDM concert before.
In response to his tour, Armin stated, “Unlike today, now that it’s all based on short sets and quick highlights, it used to be all about the long sets, the musical trips. That’s what Armin Only is based on – to take the clubbers on a 6+ hour journey into music. Through the Armin Only – Intense shows, I can tell them the full story of my ‘Intense’ album – in fact of everything I’d like to say.
Armin van Buuren and ALDA Events have been in charge of the concept development and teamed up with famous theatre director Jos Thie and creative mind Sander Reneman to create a completely unconventional, fresh approach to an electronic dance music show. Armin states, “The basis of ‘Armin Only’ will always be a DJ set but to make it more interesting for the crowd, I’m going to try and really make the live moments almost like you would witness them in a theatre!”
“Armin Only” will kick-off in Amsterdam on Friday, November 15 and 16. The “Intense” tour will continue its journey to over 20 destinations to all corners of the world. The destinations below are the first destinations that have been announced. For more information about Armin Only Intense, please visit “Armin Only’s” website and Facebook page.
