When you think of the biggest DJ's in the world, who comes to mind?

David Guetta, Tiësto, Calvin Harris, or Steve Aoki may come to mind.  And you wouldn't be wrong if those are the names that you thought of.  But in this case, 'biggest' DJ takes on a whole different meaning.

The former NBA star, who played for six teams over his 19-year career in the NBA, four-time NBA champion, Basketball Hall of Famer, and current TNT 'Inside the NBA' analyst Shaquille O'Neal is literally the worlds 'biggest' DJ, and he is coming to Western New York.

Shaq, all 7'1" and 325lbs of him, will be making an appearance at Buffalo RiverWorks on Friday, June 24th.  But the appearance won't have anything to do with his basketball career.  Rather, it will be a concert appearance of Shaq's Bass All-Stars. If you didn't know that Shaq had a second career as a musician, you are probably not alone.

He actually released four studio rap albums between 1993 and 1998. O'Neal then dipped his toes into the EDM world in 2015 when he made his debut at TomorrowWorld, and the alter ego DJ Diesel (A play on words of his NBA playing days name of Shaq Diesel) was born.

General admission tickets for the Shaq's Bass All-Stars, featuring additional performances from HeRobust B2B Riot Ten, Crankdat, and Jeanie, go on sale this Friday at 10 am for $30.00 and can be found by CLICKING HERE.  It is an all-ages show (16 and under do require a parent or guardian).
