To Rave or Not to Rave?

Think Lady Gaga has history?  According  to Billboard, “When Stefani ‘Lady Gaga’ Germanotta was an 18-year-old New York University sophomore, DJ Tiesto was DJ’ing at the opening ceremony of the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.”

DJ Tiesto will join the lineup of techno DJ’s hitting the Syracuse area this tonight at the Oncenter.  DJ Chuckie headlined Dayglow at the Oncenter earlier this month on September 2nd, and Avicii opened for B.o.B on September 11th at Juice Jam.

Tiesto is a world renowned DJ who has had a name for himself for quite some time.  This specific tour, though, is something new to him.  For the first time Tiesto is reaching out to conquer the minds of college students on his Club Life Campus Invasion Tour.  Tiesto is even on the cover of Billboard Magazine this month.

His worldwide manager, Michael Cohen of Complete Control, commented on this upcoming tour in the magazine saying,  “College kids are really discovering this much and scene for the first time, and they need a test of the Tiesto experience.  It’s almost a rite of passage.”

So frolic to American Apparel and buy all the neon you can, seek out your best friend Molly, and risk your life for a night you will never forget (or maybe never even remember it existed).  Here is one of Tiesto’s better known songs, “Escape Me.”
