Armin Only: Mirage
June 10th 2011 is getting closer. That date, the brand new Bratislava Ondrej Nepela Arena will be introduced to the sound of Armin van Buuren, as he takes his Armin Only – Mirage world tour to great heights.
Coming along, to please the Bratislava crowd, are the Bratislava Metropolitan Orchestra, Dutch hip hop-metal-rock back Baggabownz and Eller van Buuren, professional dancers and artists choreographed by Kestutus Baranauskas and of course the stunning voices of Susana, Nadia Ali, Christian Burns and many more renowned artists. All of this will be supported by a stunning show with the latest techniques.
After successful outings in 2008 of Armin Only: ‘Imagine’ in countries like Holland, the United States, Australia, Belgium, Poland and Romania, expectations run high. Will ‘Mirage’ eclipse ‘Imagine’?
Armin Only 2008 - ‘Imagine’
It’s been a while since ‘Imagine’ conquered both hearts and minds of Armin’s true fans all over the world. On a large stage in the middle of the crowd Armin played a nine-hour DJ set, accompanied by guest singers and artist friends such as Chris Jones, Jennifer Rene, Cathy Burton and Rank 1. The gigs in every city the ‘Imagine’ tour visited were fantastically successful. The events sold out way in advance and excited visitors experienced a joyful night on the dancefloor.
Memorable moments include when thousands of lit-up cellphones were lifted in the air, and numerous shots were taken with those same mobiles when an angel appeared high above the DJ booth during ‘Burned With Desire’. After the last record, satisfied crowds went home with just one question on their minds: ‘Is it possible to top this night?’
Armin Only - ‘Mirage’
Armin, 4 times 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 office of Alda Events have been hectic lately, as the last preparations are made for the world tour of Armin Only - ‘Mirage’.
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 are about to happen again all over the world. After the success of ‘Imagine’, the demand for this tour could only increase. Already the ‘Mirage’ tour will be covering five continents and nearly twenty cities, all of which will be announced shortly.
It’s very clear. If you thought ‘Imagine’ was great, you definitely don’t want to miss ‘Mirage’!
