29 Oct: Back In Black, Miami
This event was sold out for weeks with a massive buzz on the social networks. Erick Morillo, Sebastian Ingrosso and Bob Sinclair all playing under one huge tent. When I arrived I was greeted by my boy Patrick M who was warming up the giant dancefloor. This place was absolutely packed, with some of the most outrageous Halloween costumes on display. Erick arrived all smiles, and why not?! The crowd went into a frenzy when they saw him.
Then the lights were blacked out and Erick’s intro blasted out and it sounded sick! BOOM! Erick started his set playing some of the hottest tracks out there back to back. I have to admit Erick has been on fire with at all our US dates since Ibiza. He even dropped Calvin Harris big hit ‘So Close To You”, to which the crowd went bananas. Amazing scenes.
We had a few notables on stage with us up on the platform. Our main man David Grutman (owner of LIV) was in attendance, as was DJ/producer Armand Pena and some of the hottest women in Miami. This was an amazing show and many thanks to the true professionals at Go Big Productions. Special thanks to Alex Omes, Emi, Louis, Omar and of course all the loving fans!
29 Oct: Halloween at The Roosevelt Hotel, Los Angeles Cali
No time to rest, as we hopped into a plane. Next stop LA – two parties all in one day! As we arrived to LA the streets were totally packed. Everyone was out celebrating Halloween and in costume. I arrived to the show to be greeted by our own Helen Coates. She always makes me smile and is calming like a cup of tea. No time to chat as I needed to get Erick’s set-up ready in less than 10 minutes. Erick arrived in the booth to be greeted by the sight of some of the creepiest and scariest fans celebrating Halloween in style.
Erick showed yet again that he is the master. Everyone was in great spirits for this special party and we had the usual top notch selection of his famous fans stop by to say hello, from Paris Hilton to supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio. This was a great party from start to finish! Special thanks Jordan, Marc, Auggie and all the fans that showed off their amazing costumes!
30 Oct: Treasure Island, San Francisco, Cali
We were very excited to be in San Francisco. We always hear how much the fans love Erick here. And this venue was full to bursting with some of best Halloween costumes I had seen all weekend. What can I say, San Fran had it going on! Erick arrived to find himself in a room full of dancing ghosts and goblins. He rocked the house again, and you can see how he feeds off all the energy in the room. This was an exciting evening with some of the best people I have worked with. Special thanks to Toby and his amazing team. You guys did a great job getting the night ready. Let’s not forget the San Fran fans who certainly showed all their love!
04 Nov: Glo, Westbury NY
This was billed as ‘the return of Erick Morillo’. If you all don’t know, this is one of my favorite venues in the United States. Big room, big sound and a magnet for the hottest girls in NY. When I arrive everyone in the room was wearing Erick Morillo sunglasses compliments of Glo. Girls were striking a pose and they looked amazing. Antranig was warming up the dancefloor very nicely.
Erick arrived in the usual high spirits and he just smacked this cub up, down and sideways with some of the freshest tracks. Erick keeps amazing me with how diverse he can be. We had Eddie Dean, Rob Fernandez, both from Pacha NYC, plus song writer Duane Harden in the house.
05 Nov: Marquee, Las Vegas
We arrived in Las Vegas to do our monthly residency at Marquee. It’s always a treat to come to Vegas and tonight was no exception. As I’ve said before, Marquee keeps getting better and better. I arrived a bit early to hear my boy Miguel Ortiz play. I must say he did an amazing job. Erick was escorted to the stage through the melee to find himself in front of a room eager to explode! Erick played another great set at Marquee. Word has it that the top 3 parties so far this year at this amazing club have all been performed by Erick Morillo. Wow, that is saying something! The ladies were looking sexy as always. Special thanks to all that showed up and of course Morgan, Jason Strauss and his amazing team at Marquee. See you all again very soon.
