Tiesto Cancels Saturday's NSU Arena Show

​Sorry Broward trance fans, Tiesto has nixed his show at University Center Arena at Nova Southeastern University. The show, scheduled for this Saturday, is rumored to have suffered from poor ticket sales, although the "official" excuse being given is scheduling conflicts.

The only conflict they could be talking about is Tiesto's appearance at LIV in Miami Beach the very same night. However, the NSU Arena show was scheduled for earlier in the day, ending somewhere around 11 p.m., and considering he is headlining at LIV, he wouldn't be expected to go on before 1 a.m. Scheduling conflict my ass.

It could be Tiesto's booking agent was overzealous. General admission tickets for his LIV appearance has been sold out for quite some time -- although looking at today, more have been made available starting at $300 -- so South Florida fans definitely want to see him. And while LIV has a smaller capacity that NSU Arena, it still holds a sizable crowd who probably chose one over the other.
