New York - On September 2, Grammy-winning DJ and producer Zedd headlined the main stage at "Electric Zoo: The 6th Boro" in Randall's Island Park, New York, for a massive crowd.
When Zedd took the stage, the crowd went wild. His set began in an ambient note, and immediately transitioned into a powerhouse electronic concert with explosive beats and laser lights.
His show featured such smash tracks as Alesso and Tove Lo's "Heroes (We Could Be)," and it continued with a thunderous remix of Michael Jackson's "Thriller." The audience fell in love with his remix of "Stay the Night," featuring the lilting vocals of Hayley Williams from Paramore, where everybody was hopping around.
Zedd kept delivering hit after hit all night, including "Stay" with Alessia Cara. "Put your hands up in the air," Zedd commanded. Other noteworthy moments were a snippet of Queen's "We Will Rock You," and Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean." Equally fun was his refreshing remix of "I Want You to Know," where he collaborated with Selena Gomez, which was accompanied by pyrotechnics.
Another powerhouse anthem was his Grammy-winning "Clarity" and his remix of Daft Punk's classic hit "One More Time."
"My name is Zedd. This is my last song for tonight," he said, prior to playing his closing track. "Raise your hands up to the sky. All the way to the back," he said.
His set concluded with the audience singing "Happy Birthday" to Zedd, who just turned 28 years old, as he celebrated his birthday Electric Zoo style.
The Verdict
Overall, Zedd's set at "Electric Zoo: The 6th Boro" was electrifying and high-octane. The heavy rain did not stop his fans and listeners from enjoying themselves. It was a great blend of some classic songs (Queen and Michael Jackson), as well as his own hits. Zedd's live show garnered two giant thumps up.
