He played at Ruby once and that was years ago when they had their horrid sound system and about 1/10th the lighting they have now (and it's not like they have a lot of lighting now).
I dunno why the switch, whether it was a falling out, politics, money, or what. Not my business. He has openly said in more than one interview that Ten15 is one of his fav places in the world (though it was long ago), so I dunno. Peeps like Armin, Ferry, etc used to say how Circus was one of their fav places to play in the world and then one day they left it just to try something new. So PvD playing somewhere else is nothing new or unusual. Just how things go sometimes.
*this post is of my own accord. a response as a fan of EDM and just being in the scene for awhile now.*
