Kanye West, James Blunt Drop in at Tiesto Shows at Borgata
Tiesto, known around the globe as the “biggest DJ in the world,” performed a pair of sold-out shows at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa over the Dec. 2 & 3 weekend.
Thousands of fans, including Kanye West and James Blunt (see him bodysurfing at one of the shows below) came out to party at the Borgata. West recently appeared in Atlantic City with Jay-Z at Boardwalk Hall, a tour stop — presented by the Borgata — on the pair’s Watch the Throne tour (see photos here.)
On Friday, Dec. 2, Tiesto performed inside the Borgata’s Event Center to nearly 4,000 fans. Kanye West, who was just bestowed with seven Grammy nominations last week, came down from New York City with “an entourage of models,” according to a spokesperson for the Borgata, who tells Atlantic City Weekly that “The rapper was enjoying the show in a table located next to the stage, when Tiesto started to remix one of Kanye’s hits. Kanye immediately ran up on stage for an impromptu performance.”
Just after 11pm, Tiesto Tweeted the following on Kanye’s surprise appearance with him:

Pretty special when I played my @kanyewest remix and suddenly he is with me in the booth!
The next night, Saturday, Dec. 3, Tiesto performed an encore performance inside Borgata’s MIXX nightclub.
Celebrity attendees included James Blunt – following his sold-out concert in Borgata’s Music Box – and fellow DJ, Samantha Ronson, who was performing next door inside the Borgata’s mur.mur nightclub.
Blunt was so excited to see the DJ for the first time, that he dove straight into the crowd for some bodysurfing action. (See shots below)
