According to the winter Gossip thread of Ibiza spotlight Pete Tong has upped sticks and left Pacha to host a night of his own at Eden!! Apparently the contract has been signed. For me, this is a big shock. For the reputation Pete Tong has along with the reputation Eden has amongst the big 6 clubs im really suprised he is starting his own night there. For the last 5 years Pete Tong has been the resident in one of the sexiest clubs in the world that is Pacha Ibiza. His style of music and the clientÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¨le of pacha seemed to be a match made in heaven. Now for 2008 he will start a new night in Eden on a Friday night (Direct competition with his old night at Pacha) called Wonderland. This has been reported as fact, Now ill add a bit of gossip to the post and ask WHY??
My initial thought is mixed. He could have done it because he has had a falling out with Pacha, the night was never his own anyway, it was a night that took over from Ministry of sound and he has just always been a resident. He could be doing it purley because he wants a night to call his own, Another less attractive thought is that he is doing it for the money. Having his own night will make him a lot more money than working for someone else. Judge Jules has his own night there which is one of the busiest and most expensive nights on the island.
I personally think he has made a mistake. Eden has been the kiss of death to a few nights in Ibiza in the past. The best night in Ibiza saw the end in Eden. Godskitchen@Amnesia was an amazing night in Ibiza, after a falling out with Amnesia over the rights of the name Godskitchen went to Eden and after 1 season never returned. I feel that Pete Tong at Eden could be another night that only lasts one season. I have this feeling purely down to the fact that the type of people that would go to see Pete tong would not go to Eden.
I wish him all the best and i would even go and see what its like. lets just watch this space.
