Last month when we reviewed his new remix album, we asked whether the world’s #1 DJ four years running would be hosting his unparalleled Armin Only – Mirage show in the United States. Having toured much of Europe and the rest of the world with his crew of live vocalists and musicians including BT, rumors circulated over whether he would make an appearance. Well luckily our prayers were answered and we can all thank DJ Reza’s Go Ventures for helping AvB bring this one of a kind 9-hour performance to California. To be hosted outdoors at the Oak Canyon Park in Irvine on Saturday, October 29th as part of this year’s Monster Massive, this set is sure to make history.
With an enormous presence of the trance family, SoCal was the perfect choice of location. The previous and very first Armin Only show in America took place years ago at the annual Together As One NYE celebration in 2009. In a packed Los Angeles Sports Arena, a brand new generation became engulfed in the spirit of trance music. An event that I too will never forget, Armin’s midnight countdown has to be one of the most intense spectacles of light and sound in recent history (See YouTube Video Below).
