The second era of the superstar DJ continues as danceniks Calvin Harris and Tiësto announce shows in Dublin and Belfast for this December.

Under the billing "Greater Than", the pair team up for gigs in Belfast's Odyssey Arena on December 18th and Dublin's 02 on December 19th.

Tickets for the Belfast show are priced at £27.50 (seated) and £38.00 (standing) and €39.50 (seated) / €49.50 (standing) for the Dublin show.

29-year-old Harris, who is currently stepping out with Rita Ora, and Dutch DJTiësto have collaborated on the song Century but these dates will be the first time they have toured together. The gigs follow their joint 20-month residency at Las Vegas’ Hakkasan nightclub, where they currently alternate DJ sets each weekend.

Harris was recently named the world's most successful DJ, ahead of Tiesto and David Guetta. According to Forbes.com, the Scot made £29.5 million in the past 12 months after signing a deal for the Las Vegas stint.

He is also coining it from his writing and production work with Rihanna and Florence Welch.

Tiesto (or Tijs Michiel Verwest as the taxman calls him) isn't doing too badly either after earning £20.5 million for the Hakkasan residency. David Guetta came third with an estimated salary of £19.3 million for his collaborations and live shows.
