Armin Only Embrace World Premiere May 6 & 7
The Armin Only Embrace tour started victorious in Den Bosch
‘It’s all about embracing the world and ignoring boundaries’
The Armin Only Embrace tour kicked off with the sneak previews in Den Bosch last weekend. Thousands of fanatics joined us in the Brabanthallen to see what the masterminds put together for the tour. With this tour, Armin wants to spread the Embrace album around the world. The sneak previews were the first chance for the team to check how the crowd responds to their new creation and it was marvellous.
The album – Armin Van Buuren: Embrace
For Armin, his new album and tour are all about embracing the world. “On my new album Embrace, I am trying to express the feeling how I experience a world full of music. As a dj/producer I want to connect people to this world full of inspiring combinations. An endless universe of possibilities is waiting to be embraced. Everything is possible. The way I listen to music is the same way I approach life - with open arms, accepting all that's unfamiliar and different. Being surprised by something unknown every single day; like a new idea, a different culture, or an encounter with an unfamiliar person. In that world, I can be myself and embrace all new experiences.“
The tour – Armin Only Embrace
The tour is based on Armin’s new album, an album with a large variety of sounds. This variety also applies to the tour itself. The rocky sound of Kensington and the jazzy sound of Eric Vloeimans’ trumpet turned out to be a perfect fit for Armin, both in the studio as on stage they showed a uncommon chemistry. Next to them, the melodic Cimo Fränkel and Mr Propz’ hip hop voice entered the stage to present the beautiful collaborations Armin did for the album. Armin is the master of electronic music, but he also appreciates the beauty of other music genres. The dynamics and emotions of real instruments bring a unique twist to his own sound and reflect exactly what Armin hopes to show with the Embrace tour. A creative musical blend, ready to astonish fans all over the globe. Next to the artists who will bring their musical guidance to the tour, Armin also invited eight dancers.
The sneak previews in Den Bosch
The music, the dancers, the extraordinary show and the crowd should all blend into overwhelming overall experience. Armin doesn’t like the fact that the musical world nowadays is often blocked by boundaries. Both the album Embrace and the tour are made to show the world how we can all ignore these boundaries and think outside the box. The Embrace shows are a perfect opportunity to witness Armin’s search for new musical grounds and untouched territory, his journey to take his own work to the next level. Unique for this edition visitors of all ages were welcome to join the sneak previews. Even the youngest Armin fans finally got a chance to see their favourite artist live on stage. The Brabanthallen were filled with children going completely crazy on their parents’ shoulders. This resulted in an extremely energetic atmosphere and an unknown view for Armin himself. A touching sight on two beautiful nights that promise a very special Armin Only tour.
The team has one week now to implement the last improvements after the sneak previews to make sure the World Premiere in Amsterdam is pure perfection. Don’t miss this revolution in dance music; make sure you get tickets to the edition in your country!
