Hot off the heels of his European tour, and less than a few days away from  releasing his first ever original track “Firestone” featuring vocals from Conrad which drops December 1st, we had one of our foreign correspondents, Courtney Thornley attend the sold out Kygo x Thomas Jack show in Dublin, Ireland to document the experience, so click on the jump to see what she had to say, and click on the link below for all of Kygo’s European tour dates!

Kygo’s European Tour Dates

I knew I fell in love with Kygo’s sound when he remixed Ellie Goulding’s “High For This.” I fell again when he remixed “Often” by my favorite artist, The Weeknd. But if the third time isn’t the charm! Norwegian DJ and producer Kygo brought his sold-out Endless Summer Tour over to Europe and it was far from disappointing. Kygo performed at The Academy in Dublin, Ireland this past Thursday, November 27, with opening performer Amtrac. After signing with Ultra/Sony Music and replacing Avicii at TomorrowWorld’s main stage, the 23-year-old’s fan base has since exploded and this could be seen from the venue change from Twisted Pepper to The Academy due to high demand. It was a sold-out show months in advance. But this was no surprise for Dublin since this was the city where Kygo’s first ever sold-out headlining show happened.

Kygo started off his set with of course his most popular remix that has over 18 million views on SoundCloud, Ed Sheeran’s “I See Fire.” But the crowd went absolutely nuts during his remix of “Younger” and “No Diggity vs. Thrift Shop.” You couldn’t find one person in the crowd that didn’t have their drink in the air, lip singing to the entire song. Unexpectedly he ended his performance with The Weeknd’s “Often.” Nonetheless it is his newest track out and is the second highest listened to remix on his SoundCloud. Kygo threw in a couple of surprise remixes like Little Talks “Of Monsters and Men” and even debuted a new track after the crowd refused to leave until he came out for an encore performance. This year has been an incredible one for Kygo to say the least. With his new single being released on December 1 and 2015 just over a month away, who knows what Kygo will dabble in next.
