Dutch trance pioneer Armin Van Buuren has unveiled the official aftermovie from his largest solo shows to date, dubbed “The Best of Armin Only.” The live shows gathered a total of 80,000 people under the Amsterdam Arena roof for two nights of dance music illuminated by a behemoth LED screen. The producer recruited two-hundred crew members and displayed fireworks galore for his guests, who flocked from almost 100 countries to enjoy Van Buuren’s symphony.
Over 4.8 million viewers tuned in to watch the iconic stadium performances live via arminonly.tv, Facebook Live and Dutch television station RTL 4. Van Buuren was accompanied by 22 artists, 45 dancers, ten acrobats, four trampolinists and a band of 56 drummers on stage to deliver one of his most memorable shows to date.
“i’m still shaking from all this,” said Van Buuren of the show. “This show, this crowd… It was absolutely phenomenal. I’m a bit bummed out that it has gone by so quickly.”
Ultimately, he gushed ‘The Best of Armin Only’ isn’t just his ultimate highlight: “It’s ours!”
Before the start of his second show, Van Buuren released his ‘The Best of Armin Only‘ album worldwide to share with fans the essence of his live shows.
