Calvin’s amazin’ — but Guetta is better

DAVID Guetta's live gigs almost feel like cheating.

When you've produced for superstars like Rihanna, Snoop Dogg, and Nicki Minaj, it can't be difficult to dig into your back-catalogue and find something for any crowd.
But no-one was complaining at last night's iTunes festival, where the superstar DJ had the crowd on their feet from the moment he took the stage.
Calvin Harris opened the night's entertainment for the audience of lucky prize-winners, kicking things off with his track I'm Not Alone.
And unsurprisingly he soon treated the audience to this year's summer anthem, his remix of Florence And The Machine's Spectrum.

The cheeky hitmaker teased the audience as the evening went on, playing crowd-pleasing tracks like We Found Love - before launching into crashing dubstep basslines.
And accompanied by a blast of smoke and tinsel, he rounded off his set with his No2 hit, I Feel So Close To You Right Now.
But it was French super-producer Guetta who was the night's star attraction, opening his set with worldwide smash Titanium.
Surrounded by dazzling indoor fireworks, he rattled through hits including will.i.am's This Is Love, Nicki Minaj's Turn Me On, and Snoop Dogg's Sweat.
Guetta showed his fans why he is rated among the world's greatest DJs, gradually fading the Snoop track into total silence - before sending the crowd into overdrive by launching back into it.
And he topped off the evening with Coldplay's spine-tingling Fix You, mixed into his own up-tempo tune Without You.
Chuffed fan David Bull said: "I was absolutely blown away by it. Guetta was at the top of his game, and Spectrum was the highlight of the night - what an evening!"
