Armin van Buuren: “I’m working on a new album, and I hope to come back with a new Armin Only tour”

Last night, Armin van Buuren and his crew concluded the Armin Only Intense World Tour with a sold out show in the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam.

After visiting 5 different continents, the biggest project Armin van Buuren and his team ever worked on, has come to an end. The tour included destinations such as Sydney, Melbourne, St. Petersburg, Toronto, Mexico City and Johannesburg. Just over a year ago Armin Only Intense, the biggest DJ solo world tour, started it’s journey in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Since then more than 500,000 fans worldwide enjoyed the show. ALDA Events has been responsible for the concept and development of this world tour.

Armin van Buuren shares the following words about this experience:

“This is how it must feel when you’re in a band that’s breaking up. I will really miss this crew and the artists. From the very first try-outs in Den Bosch in the fall of 2013 to now, I think the show only got better and better as everybody got more and more used to their own parts in the show.”

“Working with people from the world of theater was a very new thing for most of us. They didn’t really know the dance music world, and we didn’t really know their world either. That was one of the reasons why this tour was so special to me. But where one door closes, another one opens. I’m already working on a new album, and I hope to come back with a new Armin Only tour soon. I want to thank all visitors and fans for making this show possible. And remember, whatever you do, do it Intense!”

Armin Only Intense consisted of a crew of 30 people per show that took around 2000 flights in one year. The unprecedented scale of the production is also reflected in the following facts and figures; 388 moving lights, 67 strobe lights, 20,000 Ping Pong balloons,  a video production period of 3 months with 11 people, 3 hours of pre-programmed light plan on time code and 270 fully custom freestyle video clips.

Thank you Armin for an Intense year!

The digital release of Armin Only – Intense “The Music” is available as of today at all digital outlets.
