International EDM superstar Tiësto to perform in Boise

Are you ready to party, Boise? Better be. Tiësto is coming to teach you.

On a Friday night, no less.

The Dutch musician, DJ and producer — the world's highest-paid DJ at an average gross of $250,000 per night — will headline the Revolution Center on Friday, March 8.

The openers will be Tommy Trash, Quintino and a local DJ (to be named later).

For electronic dance music fans, this is major. With recent shows by Pretty Lights and Bassnectar, the ante keeps getting upped in Boise.

The Revolution Center is a crazy-small venue for Tiësto. Let's put it this way: That tour plays the 20,000-seat Staples Center in Los Angeles on March 2, the 5,000-capacity Event Center Arena at San Jose State on March 5, the 15,500-capacity Save Mart Center at Fresno State on March 6, the 11,500-capacity Lawlor Events Center in Reno, Nev., on March 7, then ... the lil' 2,200-capacity Revolution Center in Garden City on March 8.

Playing for 100,000 people is not unusual for Tiësto. He has more than 1.5 million Twitter followers. He was the first DJ to perform live on stage at the Olympics, which he did at the 2004 summer games in Athens, Greece.

DJing since 1994, Tiësto finishes atop or near the top of DJ-ranking lists each year. In the annual granddaddy contest, DJ Mag’s 100 Popularity Poll, he came in at No. 2 in 2012. (Fellow Dutch DJ Armin van Buuren was No. 1.)

Still, Boise ain't a hot dance club in the United Kingdom. What feels massive overseas doesn't always translate here. So is Tiësto the one? Is this the DJ that sells more than 1,500 tickets in Boise? Will he be the first musical act, period, to sell out the 2,200-capacity Revolution Center?

Bring it.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 18, at Ticketfly. Five hundred special student tickets will be sold for $35. The rest of the house will cost $45.


This is major!

There are two things I can't

There are two things I can't stand in this world: People who are intolerant of other cultures, and the Dutch!

Funniest post of the morning

And so very dry.

I bookmarked the ABBA docamentary on You Tube.

Had to misspell that in case.

Notice the bumpoffs tonight. It's not working well.


Apple users, run the Gig of RAM your PC needs to have and read the dumb tech white papers, wrinkle your forehead and buy more food and toilet paper with the difference. The internet is a piece of junk anyway and your cats know this.
