Tiesto's L.A. Show to Set a U.S. DJ Record: Exclusive
Tiësto is closing his upcoming college tour with a bang: The largest single-headliner DJ show in U.S. history.
On October 8, the Dutch super-DJ will play the 26,000-capacity Home Depot Stadium in L.A., Billboard has learned exclusively. It's the final show of his Club Life College Invasion Tour, which will take him to places like Madison, Wisconsin, and Ypsilanti, Michigan over the course of its 21 dates.
"I can't wait to play Home Depot Stadium," says the 42-year-old DJ/producer. "L.A. has always been such a welcoming city to me and it's been a while since I've played there, so to be able to finish off the college tour with such a great show is really special."
Tiësto is one of the biggest electronic acts in the world. He's sold over 1.3 million tracks in the U.S., according to Soundscan, and has had 15 albums on Billboard's Top Electronic Albums chart, including the No. 1 "Elements of Life" in 2007. His roster of active brand partners includes Heineken, Armani Exchange, and SanDisk. Sony PlayStation and Axe have come on to sponsor the College Invasion tour.
