World's best DJ, Tiesto, coming to the Ritz Ybor
This may not mean much to casual music fans, but in the electronic world, it's massive: Tiesto, regarded by many as the world's best DJ, is coming to the Ritz Ybor on Oct. 18. It's the only Florida date announced so far on his upcoming fall tour.
Among house music fans, Tiesto isn't just a household name -- he's a legend. The Dutch DJ gets top billing at electronic music festivals nationwide. He's played arenas. In 2004, he performed at the opening ceremonies to the Olympics in Athens, Greece, and he partnered with Coke on another promotion for the Olympics in Beijing.
