Tiesto’s final blog post from Mixmag 23th March 2010
Final tour blog and top tracks from Tiësto posted on Mixmag 23th March 2010:
As Tiësto finishes off the UK leg of his world tour, he bids us farewell with a final blog from the road.
Saying goodbye to the UK and Ireland is going to be hard, especially after an intense weekend in Dublin and Birmingham. Dublin was one of the best shows of my life and I’m feeling tremendously inspired after playing there!
O2 Arena, which is the old Point, is an amazing venue, and I flew in just two days after St. Patty’s day. I cant imagine what that’s like in Ireland – maybe I should have flown in a little early to see everyone drinking green beer! The show was amazing; Ireland has always been one of my favourite places to play. The crowd is always so pumped for the music, which makes for a great vibe. Even a lot of my new songs, such as Escape Me and Century, were going off. Halfway through my set I decided to play a bootleg remix of my favorite bands… U2’s Sunday Bloody Sunday. The place went mad. Thanks Bono!
Following Dublin, I flew into Birmingham for my last UK show of the tour. I played at the LG Arena to a packed house. After Dublin, I didn’t think anyone could come close, but Birmingham brought their A game. I went on at 11 and ended up playing until almost 4AM! It was such a fun set for me. I was considering taking it to the dawn, but let my friend Virtual Vault take over and keep the crowd going for a few more hours. Following my set, I jumped over the security barriers and had a chance to get with people who I saw in the first few rows for the entire night. It’s one of my favourite ways to say goodbye to everyone!
These shows got me really excited for the rest of the year. I head to Miami and Mexico next week!
