No, he’s not a dutch duke. Despite the name and the ticket prices, Armin van Buuren is a trance DJ out of the Netherlands, and while he may not be a household name in most quarters of the US yet, his ongoing tour is huge and includes a stop at the SAP Center in May.

Kicking off his “Armin Only: Intense” tour last week, he sold out Madison Square Garden for his five hour set–and that’s the shortened version. For the rest of the tour, van Buuren put together a show that lasts six hours, and he won’t just be hitting play on a preset playlist, as many other EDM DJs at the top end of the market wind up doing.

But then, how does one sync the music with all the lights, visuals, confetti cannons, dancers and skateboarding goats (okay, maybe not that last one, but we can dream) that have become part and parcel of a high-end EDM show? Van Buuren’s put together a kind of compromise between old-school DJing and the demands of a giant show by selecting tracks ahead of time, but not a particular order. That way he can respond to the crowd, and his lighting designers and performers have to stay on their toes.

Of course, show-goers pay a premium to get on the floor of an Armin van Buuren show, with GA tickets at the SAP running about $100, and upper balcony tickets between $50 and $70. But if there’s anything the last couple years of huge EDM festivals have shown, the demand is high and the money is there. And with a six-hour set and the kind of theatrics van Buuren has planned, I’m sure few fans will walk away disappointed.

For instance, despite his tour title of “Armin Only,” he’ll be bringing numerous collaborators and musicians on stage like Trevor Guthrie, who sang the vocals on van Buuren’s Grammy-nominated “This Is What it Feels Like.” Plus he’ll have all those acrobats, pyrotechnics, and trippy visuals.

Also, he plays the first hour of his set inside a giant womb, representing the recent birth of his second child. Giant wombs cost money and who wouldn’t pay to see that?
