Since 2001, he has hosted a radio show, A State Of Trance, that has amassed over 20 million weekly listeners in 26 countries.
The ARMIN ONLY: INTENSE world tour will support his latest full-length artist album, Intense, that saw its global release on May 3, 2013 and landed in the top 25 on the Billboard US Dance/Electronic Albums chart.

Together, the team has created a groundbreaking EDM experience using visually-arresting technical effects and stunning live performances that will leave fans breathless.
“The basis of Armin Only will always be a DJ set,” says Armin. “But to make things more interesting, I’m going to try and really make the live moments almost like you would witness them in a theatre! I can’t wait to bring this show to all the fans around the world.”
The world tour will launch with two sold-out shows in Armin’s home city of Amsterdam on November 15 and 16 at the Ziggo Dome. After several dates across Russia, Armin will bring an epic 5-hour set featuring his signature musical style to North America starting in New York City and continuing through Monterrey, Mexico before moving on to dates in Australia, South Africa and Russia to close out the 20-date world tour.
