Armin van Buuren's "A State of Trance 600 - The Expedition" world tour is coming to a close, but before reaching its final destination in Den Bosch, Armin and some of trance's most beloved DJs made a stop in the greatest city in the world at the world's most famous arena - Madison Square Garden.
MSG is an iconic venue having hosted some of the most well-known musicians, from The Rolling Stones to the most famous pop stars. Slowly, dance music has been making its way into the arena, after Swedish House Mafia performed there twice. Now trance has finally made its New York City MSG debut when the number one DJ in the world brought his tour to the venue, and sold out every last seat.
For his stop in the Big Apple, Armin brought along Alex M.O.R.P.H., W&W, and Markus Schulz and Ferry Corsten - who made their world debut together under their new moniker as a duo: New World Punx.
Broadcasted live, MSG was turned into a dance floor as each artist let their music pour out of the Garden's gigantic speakers, along with some amazing production elements including light shows, pyrotechnics, and of course enough confetti showers to bathe every single trance fan who attended.
During Miami Music Week, we got the chance to hang out with Armin, and when we asked him what we could expect from his Madison Square Garden debut, he said, "We’ve got some special surprises, of course."
And surprised New York was, when he brought out Trevor Guthrie at the end of his set to sing their brand new single "This Is What It Feels Like."
