Trance DJ Paul van Dyk recently released a new single “Touched by Heaven,” and he’s spinning it in clubs on a 12-date North American tour presented by Insomnia’s Dreamstate trance brand. PvD will appear locally at Echostage in DC on Saturday, April 29.
Music lovers around the world were shocked when Paul suffered a terrible accident, falling through a hole in the stage during a performance in The Netherlands in February 2016. Although not fully back to 100 percent, Paul has made a remarkable recovery, and this will be his first major tour since the accident.
And performing on tour is clearly something Paul savors. Over his many tours, the German producer has traveled a distance equal to 58 trips around the world, exceeding the total distance traveled by the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, U2, and others, according to a TravelBird survey.
