Armin van Buuren Lights Up United Center During Chicago Bulls Halftime Performance
Over the weekend, Armin van Buuren joined the Chicago Bulls on the court during their game against the Knicks, but the 6'2'' producer didn't quite make his NBA debut in the traditional sense.
He did, however, light up the Bulls' home of the United Center with a halftime DJ set that brought over 20,000 fans to their feet. van Buuren opened with a surefire favorite, the Bulls' introduction theme, which was famously remixed by Pretty Lights a decade ago.
From there, van Buuren introduced a pumping kick drum and arpeggiated bassline before transitioning the dance cadence into some of his own music, such as "Blah Blah Blah" and "No Fun."
The Bulls rolled out the red mats for the trance music legend as the team's dedicated tumbling team and cheerleading squad performed a series of awe-inspiring flips and stunts in rapid succession.
