Tiesto to end College Invasion tour in LA

Tiësto announces today that he’s planning to close out his much anticipated “Club Life College Invasion Tour” with a massive show at Los Angeles’ Home Depot Stadium on Saturday, October 8. Home of Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Galaxy and Chivas USA, Home Depot Stadium has a capacity of 26,000; making Tiësto’s performance the largest single headline DJ show in US history.

“Tiësto's Club Life College Invasion Tour” is the largest dance music tour to ever hit the American college market. Tiësto will headline the three-week tour this fall with stops at campuses across the United States. College markets include Madison, Wisconsin; Ypislanti, Michigan; Syracuse, New York; Amherst, Massachusetts; Kingston, Rhode Island; Norfolk, Virginia; Winston-Salem, North Carolina; Charleston, South Carolina; Tallahassee, Florida; Athens, Georgia; Gainesville, Florida; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Austin, Texas; San Diego, California; Fresno, California; Avila Beach, California and Los Angeles, California.

In conjunction with the college tour, Tiësto is launching two unparalleled contests for his fans. The first is a remix contest offering fans the chance to remix Tiësto’s brand new track “Work Hard, Play Hard.” The winning remix will be released on Tiësto’s own Musical Freedom label and the winner will have a chance to open for Tiësto during the College Invasion Tour. The second contest will give one lucky fan the chance for Tiësto to attend his or her house party by competing with fans from college campuses across the country using social media. Check the “Tiësto House Party” tab on Tiësto’s Facebook page for more info.

Joining Tiësto on each date of “Tiësto’s Club Life College Invasion Tour” is 18-year-old prodigy Porter Robinson. This Chapel Hill, North Carolina native is a current high school student and recently burst onto the scene after performing an opening slot on Tiësto’s recent Canadian tour. Robinson’s first single - "Say My Name" – has topped Beatport's Electro-House chart.

Further details about the tour, contests and additional promotions will be announced in the coming weeks on the Tiësto University dedicated platform
