From Madrid to Mumbai, cities around the globe are still buzzing in the wake of Armin van Buuren's A State of Trance 600 World Tour. Having touched down on ten of its twelve world-wide destinations, the expedition lowered the landing gear last week in preparation for its final two shows. In top form, they came fully equipped with all the makings to celebrate the 600th incarnation of Armin's famed A State of Trance Radio Show.
It’s only been a few days since WMC came to a close but for NYC we’re ready for another dose of music madness—this time with W&W at Madison Square Garden and Best Buy Theater! The Dutch duo is joining Armin van Buuren's March 30th ASOT 600 show at MSG and after will play their own (and biggest!) show at Best Buy Theater, which they managed to completely sell out! But no worries. W&W fans can check them out when they return for a string of dates at the end of April.
Here's a second chance for those who didn't get tickets to Swedish House Mafia's record breaking sellout concert at Madison Square Garden to get a glimpse of the show LIVE! The concert will be streamed live on YouTube.com/Fuse.
Tune in on December 16 at 10:30 EST to watch the #1 trio kill it like they always do.
Also, don't forget they'll be releasing their dub-step style new single ‘Antidote' with Knife Party on the same day, December 16, 2011.

Swedish House Mafia online:
If you missed getting tickets to Swedish House Mafia, you're in luck. The much anticipated concert on December 16th will feature Swedish House Mafia's Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso as well as sets by Jacques Lu Cont, AN21 & Max Vangeli, and Carl Kennedy. The concert sold out in record breaking time and left fans who didn't get tickets shell shocked.
So if you missed your chance, following the concert at Madison Square Garden, Swedish House Mafia will host their official after party 'Back to the Masquerade Motel' at Roseland Ballroom.
After teasing a major announcement on their official website, Swedish House Mafia have revealed that they're bringing their chart-topping beats to the grandest stage of them all - New York City's Madison Square Garden. The house supergroup will be making music history by being the first dance act to headline the legendary venue.
SHM is set to ignite the Big Apple on Dec. 16th, and Pete Tong will announce the big news this afternoon on his Radio One program at 4:20 p.m. EST. Tickets will go on sale through Ticketmaster and Live Nation next friday, Sept. 30th. There will be a 24-hour presale on the group's Facebook page on Sept. 29th starting at 10 a.m. However, SHM originals, the fans that have been around since the group's first NYC show in February 2010, will get first dibs on the tickets, with a special presale running from 10 a.m. on Sept. 28th to 10 a.m. on Sept. 30th.
We've sampled our share of hotdogs and popcorn at Madison Square Garden. And while we've enjoyed them all, we wouldn't mind it if the traditional fare stepped up its game. And according to a piece that ran in The New York Times yesterday, that's exactly what's about to happen.
The paper reported that MSG is set to roll out brand new gourmet offerings when it reopens this season. Following 20 closed weeks, the mega stadium will welcome back sports fans and concert go-ers with serious foodie options. "Madison Sqaure Garden is about to unveil its new carte du jour as part of its six-year, $850 million refurbishment," says the NYT.
Lasting for over three hours, comprised of five separate sets with 29 total songs (covers included), an appearance by Arcade Fire, and cascades of white balloons falling from the ceiling at the finale, LCD Soundsystem definitely went out with a bang for their last show on Saturday (4/2) at Madison Square Garden.
There's even a full video below that documents it all.

Prince was performing a massive concert last night at the Madison Square Garden and he invited on stage Kim Kardashian. As she was watching the performance with her boyfriend Kris Humphries, Prince asked her tom join him on stage but The Keeping Up With the Kardashian babe was immediately asked to step back as she was not dancing!
"OMG Prince just pulled me up on stage!!! I'm shaking!!!!" she twitted just before being kicked off stage. "I was so nervous I froze when Prince touched me!!!!"
But Kimmy was given a second chance when he called her - and a bunch of other VIP - back during his encore...
"Went up on stage AGAIN! This time I redeemed myself!" she tweeted, AGAIN. "We all danced while Prince played the piano! Wow! What a night!"
The flamboyant genius of the electric guitar is back! Prince's largely anticipated tour, "Welcome 2 America," is now unfolding much to the delight of fans who, until recently, salivated over rumors of "The Purple One's" return. Prince, who hasn't toured since 2004, has made a number of appearances over that time but they all seemed to fall on scattered dates that essentially came out of nowhere - other than TV show appearances, Prince would often go as far as appear announced at venues and sing a few songs. Now, at 52, Prince is back and he's keeping it cool.
