Tiesto Launches 2012 Residency at XS Nightclub
Last night, Tiësto, recently voted “The Greatest DJ of All Time”, launched his exclusive 2012 residency with Wynn Las Vegas at mega-nightclub, XS. The 40,000-square-foot venue was packed wall to wall for Super Bowl weekend, with devoted fans traveling from all over the globe to experience the kick-off for the talented DJs new home in Sin City (Photo: © Erik Kabik/ RETNA/ www.erikkabik.com)

Tiësto took to the stage shortly after 1 am and played until the early hours of the morning. Special production, including three huge LED walls, confetti guns and smoke cannons, only added to the artist’s highly anticipated set.

With countless achievements including a Grammy Award nomination, several MTV awards, and a performance at the opening ceremony of the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, Tiësto, a.k.a. Tijs Verwest, is one of the most recognizable electronic artists worldwide. He has developed an incredible following over his career and compiled more than 10 million Facebook fans and nearly 300 million hits on YouTube. Last night’s crowd did not disappoint with everyone from comedian Drew Carey to Dancing with the Stars Pro Derek Hough to UFC Ring Girl Brittney Palmer joining in the fun.

Not to be outdone, socialite Paris Hilton headed to the stage, jumping in the booth with Tiësto to give a shout out to XS as her favorite club in the country before praising the DJ and hyping the crowd. Hilton, rumored to be dating XS Resident DJ Afrojack, has become an uber-fan of electronic dance music and is said to be collaborating on her own album with her beau as well as pop sensation LMFAO. She danced on stage until 4 am, throwing oversized XS balloons out to the crowd and posing for photo opps with fans.

Tiësto has gone on record saying this is the “best club in the world” and if he were to build a club, it would look exactly like XS. Playing several dates throughout the remainder of the year, the superstar and mega-club will be a perfect match for special events in 2012 and beyond, including his next date during Spring Break season on Saturday, March 31.

“Tiësto is more than an artist — he is a globally respected brand,” said Jesse Waits, co-owner and managing partner of XS and Tryst Nightclubs. “This partnership is an integral component of our plans to solidify Wynn Las Vegas as a mecca for electronic music. The combination of Tiësto’s talent, devoted fan base and special production elements will create a monumental series of events in the year ahead.”
