Calvin Harris and Tiësto have announced today that they will team up this December for a five city tour of the UK and Ireland. Their ‘Greater Than’ tour will be one of the hottest tickets this December and culminates at Glasgow’s Hydro Arena.

After collaborating on the song ‘Century’ together in 2009, these UK and Ireland dates will be the first time the superstars have toured together and follow their joint 20-month residency at Las Vegas’ new Hakkasan nightclub, where they currently alternate DJ sets each weekend.

Tiësto is a performer who has transcended musical genres to create a global ‘Tiësto’ brand. With over 15 million friends on Facebook, 2 million followers on Twitter, over 400 million views (and one million subscribers) on YouTube, Tiësto has truly become a universal phenomenon. Voted ‘The Greatest DJ Of All Time’ by Mixmag in 2011 and the #1 DJ by Rolling Stone, Tiësto has worked with superstars such as Kanye West, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Nelly Furtado, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Goldfrapp and many more.

Calvin Harris recently performed headline slots at some of the world’s biggest festivals including Ultra, T in the Park, Summer Sonic, EDC and Wireless along with numerous sets in Ibiza and Majorca, and this will be his first ever headline Arena tour. He released his #1 album ’18 Months’ last October, selling over 650,000 copies in the UK alone and over 23 million singles worldwide. ‘18 Months’ recently made chart history scoring the most Top 10 singles from one album, a record previously held by the legendary Michael Jackson who had 7 Top 10 singles on one album.
