MIAMI — [artist id="1526529"]Travis Barker[/artist], [artist id="1559269"]A-Trak[/artist], [artist id="961130"]Lil Jon[/artist], [artist id="508249"]Jazzy Jeff[/artist], "Jersey Shore" star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and [artist id="1909917"]Steve Aoki[/artist] were some of the guests on hand to honor [article id="1619854"]the late DJ AM[/article] at an unannounced tribute show on Thursday night at Miami's LIV nightclub.
The lineup of the show — part of the Winter Music Conference — was a tightly guarded secret, though most in attendance suspected that both [article id="1633682"]Barker and Trak, who recently toured[/article] as a duo, were part of the bill. And when they hit the stage shortly after midnight, those suspicions were confirmed.
Trak announced that he and Barker were performing "in honor of our fallen friend, DJ AM," and the two launched into their set, which saw the DJ cutting up a song that mentioned AM by name while Barker flailed at his kit. Both men were wearing "Rest in Peace AM" T-shirts, and a video screen behind the stage displayed a collage of images of AM (real name: Adam Goldstein), who was [article id="1622562"]found dead[/article] in his New York apartment last August, of an accidental drug overdose in September.

Barker and AM famously teamed together for years — they were the [article id="1619865"]house band at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards[/article] — survived a fiery [article id="1595303"]South Carolina plane crash[/article] in September 2008. Earlier this year, Barker remembered his friend and colleague by getting an [article id="1633244"]"In Memory Of" tattoo[/article] on his thigh.
On Thursday night, Barker and A-Trak's performed for roughly 45 minutes, and featured a cameo by Lil Jon. Also in attendance were DJs Steve Aoki, Jazzy Jeff and Tiesto, all of whom — except Tiesto — also performed at the tribute show.
