Update: Tiësto Concert Rescheduled

(Update September 27): According to Bryce Jordan Center director of marketing Bernie Punt, the concert has been rescheduled for February 26.


It’s official, Penn State. Get your neon clothing, lollipops, and drug of choice ready — Tiësto is coming to town. That’s right, the world-renowned Dutch house producer and DJ will be performing at the Bryce Jordan Center on October 8th, as part of his College Invasion Tour 2012, according to the Bryce Jordan Center’s official Facebook page.

This comes after Penn State was able to draw big names in the EDM world last school year, hosting upcoming Swedish DJ Avicii in the fall and the duo of newcomer Alesso and Swedish House Mafia legend Sebastian Ingrosso in the spring. But for the first time, a well-known, well-respected, world-acclaimed producer will be setting foot in the Bryce Jordan Center in the form of a 43-year old Dutch man that calls himself Tiësto.

Recently straying from his progressive house roots, Tiësto has been gravitating towards electro house in his more recent releases, which of course features that dirty bass sound that’s become increasingly popular over the last few years (and no, it’s not the same thing as dubstep). He put out a mix album called Club Life: Vol. 2 Miami earlier this year, which should give you a good idea as to what he might play when he makes his way to Happy Valley.

Tickets will go on sale for the show on Tuesday June 26th, and will be available on TicketMaster as always. Information on potential openers for Tiësto is not yet available but we will keep you updated as we hear more about the biggest electronic concert yet to hit Penn State.

Update, 9:55 a.m.: Ticket information for Tiësto has been released on the Bryce Jordan Center website. General admission floor tickets will be $45 and reserved seating tickets will cost $30. Penn State students will be eligible for a $10 discount off the price of their ticket. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, June 26th at 10 a.m. and can be purchased via phone, Ticketmaster, or in person at the Bryce Jordan Center box office. The full release with additional information can be found here.
