David Guetta Had Quite a Moment at Tomorrowland: Watch Him Stare Into the Abyss
By Scott T. Sterling
Most people have had those moments where they’ve been caught just staring out into space, lost in thought, blissfully unaware of the world around them. It just usually doesn’t happen onstage in front of hundreds of thousands of screaming fans.
Such was the case for famed French DJ/producer David Guetta, who was caught on video completely lost in space during his set at this year’s Tomorrowland festival in Belgium last weekend (July 25-27).
Fans watching the performance online during the live stream saw Guetta staring blankly at one of the video cameras while the camera operator took the opportunity to zoom in on the DJs face, resulting in one of the most amazing (and disturbing) GIFs of the year (below, courtesy Gawker).
The moment is even more profound when seen in the full context of his DJ set, which can be watched below. See Guetta and the camera engaged in a stare-down so intense it’s hard to tell if the DJ is going to have an existential breakdown, attack someone or simply start crying.
There’s no rest for Guetta over the coming weeks, with the producer slated for a slew of shows across Ibiza and other European stops throughout the month of August. He’s set to return to the States for a performance at this year’s Electric Zoo festival over the weekend of Aug. 29-31.
