Seeing this video brought back fond memories, as I was able to attend Tiesto’s College Invasion Tour when it hit URI. There really is no question; Tiesto’s sets are unreal. But I’d like to focus on the behind-the-scenes aspect of this video, in which you see Tiesto interacting with your run-of-the-mill college students. He goes on to admit that he is more or less overwhelmed with the vast support he received on these campuses, flying from sold out show to sold out show. He points out, also, that even though most of the songs he plays are rarely on the radio (except satellite), the entire crowd seemed to be able to sing along. For Tiesto, the relationship between the Internet and college students is a very special one in that it has allowed such massive exposure and support of the EDM genre as a whole throughout the United States. Just a side note: This may be the first episode of “In The Booth” where no one gets hit with a champagne cork. Instead, they leave the class behind and Tiesto sinks the game-winning shot on the beer pong table… Such a bro.
