House4DJ recently had the chance to catch Armin van Buuren at a press conference at The Baroness Bar in LIC, New York, where we learned a few details on the international Armin Only: Intense arena tour, kicking off in NYC for the North American leg of the tour this Spring!
Teaming up with ALDA Events and Live Nation, this is the first time that the United States (and other countries) will have ever seen the Armin Only: Intense show, which is an otherworldly musical experience unlike any other. The New York City location for the tour has been revealed: the iconic Madison Square Garden, and no better location than the same legendary venue where Armin van Buuren had headlined a sold out show for the A State Of Trance 600: The Expedition Tour earlier this year!
5 time winner of DJ Mag’s Top 100 poll (top 5 ranking for 12 consecutive years) and Grammy nominated artist Armin van Buuren will bring something different to every venue and city with the Armin Only tour, as he described it as a “5 hour freestyle set” – there will be no actual set list or pre-recordings, which have become all too familiar with arena shows. Instead, Armin van Buuren will be able to react to the crowd and take fans on a musical journey with different music at every show, the way that it’s meant to be, and is oftentimes hard to do in a short 90 minute festival/arena set.
Featuring a theatrical experience of choreographed dancers, live singing, and state-of-the-art light, sound, and special effects never seen before at any electronic music show, there is no dance experience in the world like Armin van Buuren’s Armin Only: Intense Tour, and deservedly so for the world’s biggest DJ!
Check out the official trailer, tour dates, and ticket links below. Don’t miss out!
