iTunes Festival 2012: David Guetta Brings Nothing But The Beat!
The friendly French hit machine had one helluva warm-up act at the iTunes Festival, with Scottish pop wizard Calvin Harris - who could easily have headlined - warming up the decks (and crowd) for Guetta.
Calvin slammed down most of his addictive hits, including: I'm Not Alone, Bounce, his Rihanna collaboration We Found Love and his latest track We'll Be Coming Back with fellow iTunes Festival headliner, Example.
Occasionally, four massive jets of smoke punctuated the throbbing beats in the Roundhosue. The jets fired nearly every time the beat dropped, as did two massive cannons, which spurted hundreds of tiny streamers into the air.
His early hits - Acceptable In The 80s and I Get All The Girls - were omitted from his hour-long set. He left the stage to a chorus of screams as he told the crowd to enjoy David Guetta.
The man himself received an equal torrent of cheers as he stepped up to the decks. He wasted no time and immediately pumped his number one single - Titanium - through the speakers to the crowd's delight.
Further highlights included Usher's Without You, Coldplay's Fix You and of course, Guetta's seminal hit with Akon - Sexy Bitch. In a coy nod to Calvin Harris, the DJ also played a remix of Florence And The Machine's Spectrum.
Towards the end of the show, a round of indoor fireworks challenged Plan B's bellowing flames as the most audacious pyrotechnics of the iTunes Festival so far.
The crowd pulled the infamous hear-shaped hand sign to coincide with Guetta's track One Love, although CH might not have been a fan, as he later tweeted that he would: "never do the heart shape with my hands".
The night closed with the Black Eyed Peas' mega-hit I Gotta Feeling, as David Guetta bounced around gibbering his unintentionally hilarious praise of the crowd.
Overall it was an immense gig and potentially the best party crowd of the enitre festival, so far.
