Always a favourite to Aussie shores, it will be Tiësto’s first time back down under since 2018. Joining Tiësto on this tour will be his good friend and one of the most successful young DJ/Producers over the last few years: Joel Corry. The tour will commence on Friday 11 March at The Dome Olympic Park, Sydney before heading to Brisbane’s BRC Doomben on Saturday 12 March and finishing at Melbourne Showgrounds on Sunday 13 March.
The production and staging of Tiësto’s Australian tour will be second to none and will showcase a spectacular visual and lighting show. Tickets go on sale at 10am (local time), Monday 15 November at Ticketek.
Successful DJ/Producer Tiësto has sold over 36 million albums, has 8 Billion cumulative streams, a social platform with an audience exceeding 30 million fans spanning the globe and he continues to revolutionize the dance music landscape. His recent global smash hit: ‘The Business’ has dominated airplay and charts worldwide since its September 2020 release, garnering over 1 billion streams to date, it is certified Platinum in 15 countries, Gold in 8 countries and has held a place in the Top 10 official singles chart in 10 countries, as well as Top 50 on Spotify in 31 countries.
Multi-BRIT Award nominated and London-based DJ/producer Joel Corry, will be joining Tiësto on his tour to Australia. The past two years have been nothing but incredible for Joel. His platinum-selling breakthrough single ‘Sorry’ spent 10 weeks in the UK Top 10 in 2019. Next came further platinum hit singles ‘Lonely’, which peaked at #4 and the double-platinum ‘Head & Heart’ featuring MNEK, which scored Joel his first ever UK #1 and was officially verified the longest-running consecutive #1 record of 2020 after spending six weeks in top spot. It was also later named the UK’s ‘Biggest Dance Single’ of 2020 by the Official Charts Company. Joel followed up the success of ‘Head & Heart’ with ‘BED’ in March 2021 – a three-pronged collaboration with singer-songwriter RAYE and legendary DJ/producer, David Guetta. It peaked at #3 on the UK Singles Chart to earn Joel his third UK Top 5 single in a row.
