Bio: Tiësto’s new album 'Kaleidoscope Remixed' is a reworking of Kaleidoscope, his 4th artist album that included a stunning collection of songs written and recorded in collaboration with a variety of music talents from the worlds of dance, pop and rock. Featured artists included Jónsi Birgisson from Sigur Rós, Kele Okereke from Bloc Party, Nelly Furtado, Calvin Harris and Emily Haines from Metric, to name a few.
Some of the best remixers and producers in the business were handpicked by Tiësto to bring their supreme talents to the album. Included are remixes from Tiësto himself as well as Philip D, Avicii, Bart B More, Wolfgang Gartner, Ferry Corsten, Nic Chagall, Jonas Stenberg, and more… Kaleidoscope Remixed further reflects the growing stature of a man who many consider to be the world's top DJ.
Tiësto is currently on his Kaleidoscope World Tour, which is the biggest DJ-only tour in history. Starting in September 2009 and running for 14 months, Tiësto is playing over 175 dates across 6 continents to an unprecedented 1,000,000+ people.
“This year I concentrated all my energy on the Kaleidoscope World Tour. Along with the music, I created some of the best production to date, and it really feels like something special.” These shows don’t exceed expectations so much as blow them wide open. Tiësto invested heavily in the live aspect of his sets and those in attendance witness a truly mesmerizing exhibition of lasers, light shows and massive LED screens as well as hearing sound from one of the most powerful systems ever used.

Achievements include a Grammy nomination, numerous MTV awards, performing at the opening ceremony of the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, and even a wax statue at Madame Tussauds.

Whether it be the 250,000 revelers coming together at Ipanema Beach in Rio De Janeiro, the adoring clubbers who descend upon Privilege in Ibiza every Monday night, or the 25,000 fans en masse at Victoria Park in London, all are in attendance for the same reason, they have come to see Tiësto.
