Concept & vision
The new world tour is inspired by Armin’s latest album, ‘Intense’. Armin Only is a concept that started in the early days of Armin’s career. Since the first editions in the early millennium years, the show has grown and come to life. Armin explains: ”Unlike today, now that it’s all based on short sets and quick highlights, it used to be all about the long sets, the musical trips. That’s what Armin Only is based on – to take the clubbers on a 6+ hour journey into music. Through the Armin Only – Intense shows, I can tell them the full story of my ‘Intense’ album – in fact of everything I’d like to say.”
With a new world tour, greater expectations rise. Armin van Buuren and ALDA Events have teamed up with famous theatre director Jos Thie and creative mind Sander Reneman (owner 250K). The two directors teamed up with the Intense crew, resulting in a completely unconventional and fresh approach to an electronic dance music show. Armin on the new approach of the show: “The basis of Armin Only will always be a DJ set but to make it more interesting for the crowd, I’m going to try and really make the live moments almost like you would witness them in a theatre!”
As a result of that, there will be an extensive rehearsal period of two weeks, in which Armin and his crew will dot the i’s and cross the t’s. It also offers the fans that missed out on getting a ticket for the sold-out shows in the Ziggo Dome a chance to be part of the exclusive sneak previews in the Brabanthallen. Only a limited amount of people will be able to witness this (2000 persons per show). Ticket sales for these sneak previews will start this Saturday the 19th of October at 12h00 via arminonly.com.
On Friday the 15th and Saturday the 16th of November, Armin welcomes all of his fans during the official kick-off of his world tour in Amsterdam, where he will unfold the many layers of this new show. Tickets for the first Armin Only – Intense edition sold out in only a couple of hours – the ones for the second show within one weekend. After this premiere, Armin Only Intense will continue its journey to over 20 destinations to all corners of the world.
Expect to be blown away by an exclusive 6 hour set by Armin van Buuren, including stunning live performances, dancing acts and top-notch technical effects that have never been used in EDM before. These are the first destinations that have been announced earlier today:
