One of a select few artists to play the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater in 2020, Tiësto put on a show with two entirely different sets — one headlining performance and another exhilarating show from his side project VER:WEST.
The Dutch deejay/producer/artist/record label entrepreneur kicked off his session in Morrison, Colorado, with plenty of Musical Freedom cuts, including an intro edit of the viral “WOW,” as well as collaborations with DallasK, 7 Skies, Cheyenne Giles, John Christian, KSHMR, Vintage Culture, The Chainsmokers and others. The stream also marked the world premiere of Tiësto’s hit track, “The Business” which can be heard as part of the larger hard-hitting Tiësto set here via Apple Music.
During his follow up performance, the 51-year-old Dutchman took a different approach, returning to his trance roots as VER:WEST with select cuts from Duke Dumont, Leftwing : Kody, Yotto and more, peaking with the project’s acclaimed debut single, “5 Seconds Before Sunrise.” The final track is likely a nod to “Ten Seconds Before Sunrise,” the Tiësto classic that kicked off his 2007 LP, Elements of Life.
