In case you missed it, the King of Trance, Armin Van Buuren blew the roof off KL Live Centre last Friday with a stellar show.
Local acts Mister Ariffin and Lissa Qash served as his opening acts, and they did a good job pumping up the crowd with their upbeat mix of tracks while waiting for the main man. When Armin finally came on precisely at 11.30pm, he proved he was well worth the wait, immediately sending the crowd into a frenzy.
Before commencing his show, Armin promised everyone that Friday the 15th will be a day we’d never forget – and he kept his words. He took everyone at KL Live through an extraordinary trance experience as he played his signature tracks and mixes throughout his 2-hour set.
Armin’s fans were in for a real treat as they were served with familiar tracks like ‘In And Out Of Love’, ‘Great Spirit’, ‘Heading Up High’, ‘I Need You’, and the crowd favourite – ‘Vini Vici’. Armin also paid an emotional tribute to Linkin Park with ‘In The End’, which sent the crowd into euphoria.
At one point, the fans freaked out when the screen went blank and Armin turned around to wave his hands angrily. It turned out to be a prank – Armin fooled the crowd in order to set up for his next track, ‘This Is A Test’.
Aside from gratifying fans with an insanely incredible show, Armin should also be given props for actively engaging with the crowd, constantly interacting with them while sporting a big smile on his face. When it was time to say goodbye, he walked out of the DJ deck with a Malaysian flag wrapped around his shoulders to thank everyone for coming.
It was truly an unforgettable night, and Armin proved why he’s the best DJ in the game as he left everyone on a high.
