With his smart mixes and charismatic stage persona, Dutch-born DJ Tiësto has been a fan favorite for almost a decade. His fame exploded with the release of his first solo album In My Memory in 2001, after he’d spent 15 years developing his style through club work and production work. That album produced five hits, which spawned bigger opportunities: He was the first turntablist to spin in front of a large crowd without an opening act, and he performed at the 2004 Athens Olympics opening ceremonies. He now claims the title World’s Biggest DJ and is on tour supporting his latest album, Kaleidoscope, which features collaborations with Sigur Rós’ Jónsi, Nelly Furtado and Tegan & Sara. The show starts at 9:30 p.m. at Aura (2325 Elm St., 216.241.1444). Tickets: $30-$45. — Ernest Barteldes
