After completing this tour as you can imagine Armin was drained, but had some really promising things to say.

After my last Intense show in the ZiggoDome last night, my body is sore, my voice is gone, my neck hurts like hell again but this feeling is amazing. To be honest, I could have done another year with the Intense tour. It’s so much fun to tour the world with a big group of people. There were many great places we didn’t go to this time. But it feels right to end it at its peak. The show is at it’s best now! I’m proud to have worked with such a big group of amazing people. And we ended it in style last night! But where one door closes another opens. Room for new idea’s, new music.

I really don’t know yet if I’ll ever do another Armin Only tour. It’s going to be hard to top this show and to find a new group of people to work with where the vibe is so amazing. Maybe I just have to change it completely or maybe I did my last show as Armin Only last night? I want to take a break and think about it and let the magic in the studio decide where I go next. I do have some idea’s though… For now, there’s a great new A State Of Trance 700 tour coming up. Turning that into a festival is a big new step. I’m also very excited to tour more as Gaia and to finish all this music I’ve been working on the past year.
For now, I want to thank all my fans and everybody that came to see the Intense show. Some of you even more than once! I released the live music from Intense today and there’s also a Most Intense package including DVD if you really can’t get enough.

I can’t wait to see you again soon. And whatever you do, do it Intense!
