Blaze, Peacock Theatre, London

Blaze scoops up street dance, reality TV dance competitions and stage and video designers, cramming them all together to make a noisy, scattershot show. In one mood, it can frame champion-level breakdancing with sophisticated video design, imagery swirling. In another, it tries cheesy comedy routines with joke wigs and a clapometer.

DJ Tiesto, Victoria Park, London

DJ Tiesto's brand name and face are plastered either side of the stage. You may also see him modelling underwear on giant Times Square billboards, and advertising expensive watches. The Dutchman is the epitome of the modern international superstar DJ. He broke house music into the US mainstream, remixed Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, and DJed as athletes paraded at the Athens Olympics. Tonight's four-hour set in front of 20,000 people in the East End's open air is a mere aperitif compared to the six hours of his current Ibiza residency. He is the biggest DJ in the world. But, for all the mega-pixel video screens, the scale and success, at the end I'm left wondering: is that all there is?
