Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike Complete 3 Sold-Out Arena Shows To 60,000 Fans In Belgium
Superstar DJs/producers Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, voted #1 on DJ Mag’s globally renowned poll of the Top 100 DJs in the world, returned to Belgium over the weekend for three sold-out shows (December 17, 18, 19), with special guests Afrojack, Armin van Buuren and Ne-Yo, plus an exclusive vinyl-only session. The duo will head to the U.S. first quarter of next year to finish their new album.
After last year’s ‘Bringing The World The Madness‘ spectacle, fans welcomed the announcement of ‘Bringing The Madness 3.0‘ by snapping up 40,000 tickets in under 40 minutes—a feat only previously managed by legendary names such as U2, Madonna, Beyoncé and Coldplay. Due to the high demand for tickets, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike added an additional date on December 17, increasing the total capacity of fans to 60,000 people.
The duo performed a ‘back to their roots‘ all-vinyl as part of the full show – showcasing not only some of their best loved tracks, but also their history behind the decks in the electronic scan that spans more than 10 years. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s upcoming album will be hot off the heels of their Ne-Yo collaboration ‘Higher Place,’ which was the most Shazamed track ofTomorrowland, TomorrowWorld, and Creamfields, with 13 million Spotify streams and more than 8 million YouTube views. ‘Higher Place‘ marks the first single to be released under the duo’s newly minted relationship with Motown Records and Ne-Yo’s Compound Entertainment.
In the course of their illustrious career so far, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have scored 10 No. 1 Beatport hits and multiple iTunes number ones. They earned the title of ‘Main Stage Residents‘ at Tomorrowland festival in Belgium, USA (TomorrowWorld), and Brazil. They’ve hosted residencies at both Hakkasan in Las Vegas and Amnesia in Ibiza. Meanwhile, the video for their 2015 smash ‘The Hum‘ [vs. Ummet Ozcan] starred Charlie Sheen and Jean-Claude Van Damme and is closing in on 30 million views.
