DJ Tiesto Invades State College

If you were in State College on Tuesday, you might have felt the ground shaking or heard a loud rumbling. There’s no need for concern, though. It wasn’t an earthquake.

It was just Tiesto bringing his famous College Invasion Tour to the Bryce Jordan Center.

Tiesto, along with DJ Alvaro, Quintino and Tommy Trash, might have brought his much-anticipated show to State College months after originally planned, but he certainly made it up to the sold-out crowd, which went wild with his every move.

The opening acts each played solid sets, with Tommy Trash playing his signature songs such as “Monkey See Monkey Do”, but it was clear who the crowd really wanted to see.

And at 10 p.m., they finally got what they were looking for.

“State College, Make Some Noise!” flashed on the screen as the DJ played songs off his most recent albums Club Life: Volumes 1 & 2 and Kaleidoscope. “Maximal Crazy” and “Chasing Summers” sent the crowd into a confetti and streamer-covered frenzy. He also surprised the crowd by playing songs from as far back as 2005’s “Adagio for Strings”, and remixes to songs like Afrojack’s “Can’t Stop Me Now”.

While Tiesto might not have been the first DJ to make his mark on Penn State, the Top Ranked DJ in the World certainly left one of the favorites.
