Las Vegas inspires Tiesto’s upcoming album


One of the Vegas’ biggest resident DJs has announced a new album inspired the city he holds court in throughout the year.

Tiesto, the superstar DJ-producer who’s a regular at Hakkasan and Wet Republic, has reveled details of his first record in five years, “A Town Called Paradise,” whose title alludes to Las Vegas.

“When I really look at it, it’s like this oasis of entertainment right in the middle of the desert, so to me, ‘A Town Called Paradise’ is a good way to describe Las Vegas,” Tiesto recently told Rollingstone.com. “It’s been a very special place to me and has influenced the creation of this album.”
