First electronic DJ to ever have a solo show of this record-breaking size in Canada.

On August 25, 2007 when Tiësto performs to a crowd of close to 10,000 fans at GM Place, Vancouver will be christened with an unprecedented music concert. Both pleasing his fans, and opening the door of new experience for all music fans, Tiësto is the hottest ticket in Canada.

"This type of show is a significant departure from what audiences perceive of DJ events, but rather it is parallel to that of Blue Man Group or Cirque Du Soleil," explains Paul Runnals, Production Director of Brand LIVE. "No one is expecting the exceptional show that they will be participating in, not even die hard Tiësto fans."

Tiësto: Elements of Life is on world tour for a year, a mammoth undertaking for any artist, which will incorporate a breathtaking live show, visuals, laser, pyrotechnics, and lighting. The 'Elements Of Life' concept features the four elements of life: air, water, earth, and fire. Large screens and LED curtains will seamlessly integrate captivating images of each essential element intertwined with the human form, and create an unforgettable and highly unique experience.

"Vancouver hasn't seen what happens when the right production team comes together to create a show that is second to none on a global scale," said Ami Seaton, ami Ltd. Founder. "This team is so professional - We've got Brand Live formulated from some of Canada's most acclaimed live producers working closely with Tiësto's show designers from Holland."

Seaton continues, "I am both honoured and proud that the city I love (Vancouver) has stepped up and embraced this show because it is 'so different,' and will change the whole basis for judging dance music. I look forward to the future of dance music events in this format."

Tiësto has a certain magic that is reaching the masses beyond the electronic music scene. Best known for being first DJ to play live at the Athens Olympic Games opening ceremony, Tiësto has been voted "best DJ in the World" 3 consecutive times by DJ Magazine, and consistently continues to be the biggest DJ draw in the world. His remix of Delerium/Sarah McLachlan's Silence was the first house track ever broadcast on daytime radio in North America, (8 weeks in UK top 10 chart). Tiësto is the official worldwide ambassador for the Dance4Life foundation, fighting the spread of AIDS/HIV.

Since release on Ultra Records April 2007, Tiësto's third artist album, 'Elements of Life,' has been on the charts. Week of release E.O.L. placed in Billboard at #1 in the Electronic Album category, #71 in Top 200 and #3 on the Electronic Album list where it remains today, and hit #8 for the most digital albums sold in the US. It went on to chart at #1 on iTunes US (Dance Album), and #2 on iTunes Canada for the largest selling album overall. The meteoric success of 'Elements of Life' is a first for Tiësto's career, and the album has become one of the largest in 2007 for dance music.

This landmark concert production will be a collaboration of media and sponsors, AM Only, Prime Time Management, Artist Management International (ami Ltd.), Gem, Clubzone, KMISHN Vancouver, DJ, Progressive Entertainment, Live Nation GM Place, Georgia Straight, Beat 94.5 FM, GTWO-PR, and Brand LIVE.
