Concert Report: DJ Paul Van Dyk (Firestone Live)

Firestone Live....again?  Yes, third time in three weeks because this is the place for EDM in Orlando!
With opening DJ Robb Blak (Roxy Nightclub, Bikkuri Lounge) spinning Trance to a huge crowd!
He's become the "go to" DJ for openings, having recently done so for Ferry Corsten (NL) & Gareth Emery (GB), among others!
But everyone is here for DJ/Producer and the No. 16 DJ in the world, Paul van Dyk (D), shown here from the tunnel arriving at the club!  Hasn't played Orlando since Electric Daisy Carnival in May, 2011.
Coming in and beginning his 2 hour set at 12:30am!
It can be difficult to differentiate between House and Trance sometimes but as far as I could tell it was an all-Trance set!
First time I've seen a DJ use two laptops!!
The place was packed and the crowd was psyched-up!
Incredible lighting provided by HTG!
He didn't play a Vocal Trance song until nearly a half-hour into the show!
Sorry for the distance of the photos in this article but the place was so packed that I camped out in the lighting booth and stayed there all night!
Working in the Lighting department, GregHTG (The Beacham, The Abbey, Roxy).
The one and only Jeff Kenney (HTG)!
With a little help from Alisa (Mannequins, Atlantic Dance Hall, House of Blues)!
The lighting indeed was most impressive!
A good time was had by all!
PVD signing autographs for ten minutes after his set!
