Armin Van Buuren, four time winner of the prestigious DJ MAG Top 100 DJs poll, is a true perfectionist. Even though he’s been ranked amongst the world’s top-flight DJs for quite a few years now, this is no reason for him to rest on his laurels. There’s always room for improvement, and this is the attitude he demands from his crew as well. No wonder things at the offices of Go Ventures & Alda Events (Armin’s production company) have been hectic lately, as major preparations are made for the exclusive United States tour date of Armin Only – ‘Mirage’, scheduled to take place on Saturday October 29th at Monster Massive.
The ‘Mirage’ show will bring an overwhelming amount of audio-visual highlights, state-of-the-art show acts and surprising guest-appearances. More than ever, interaction with the crowd is an essential component of the night. Harmony is the magic word, and a perfectly arranged production is the key to create this, although the main focus will obviously be on Armin himself, mixing all the ingredients into a wonderful treat for the audience. The whole performance will be under the umbrella term ‘Mirage’. It’s a word used in several ways, but for Armin it only means one thing:
Armin: “To me ‘Mirage’ represents the feeling of euphoria I am filled with when I see the happiness of the crowd in front of me during my set. At that point I share my passion for music with everyone around me. When there is that special connection between all of us, it almost seems like a blanket of positive energy covering the crowd. I am fully aware of it and I live for that moment 200%. To me ‘Mirage’ is the perfect expression to capture that untouchable feeling which is so vividly present at the same time.”
Those moments of euphoria have already swept the world with sold out Armin Only Mirage shows in The Netherlands, Russia, Lebanon and other countries. After the success of these international ‘Mirage’ dates and the previous US ‘Imagine’ date at Together As One NYE ‘08/09, this is the most impressive and in demand show/experience in dance music today. The response has been tremendous and presale tickets are highly recommended. Tickets are on sale now at www.monstermassive.com.
