Illenium is breaking new ground. The EDM star is set to perform the first-ever show at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on July 3.  

The DJ will perform Trilogy, a three-set concert commemorating his previous three albums: AshesAwake and Ascend. The show will arrive days before his fourth albuFallen Embers, due out July 16.  

“The Trilogy idea for me has always been the celebration of the end of this chapter,” Illenium said in a release. “My plans were to take it on tour last year but the pandemic wouldn’t allow it. So we’re going to do it in one huge show, three sets, and it will be the biggest show I’ve ever done. I’m beyond excited to be able to do this in Las Vegas. It will be insane.” 

Allegiant Stadium is home to the NFL’s Raiders and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas football team. The stadium is fully enclosed and climate-controlled with a capacity of up to 65,000. Illenium at Allegiant is being produced by AEG Presents, Life Is Beautiful, Another Planet Entertainment and ASM Global. 

“If there was ever a venue and a city perfectly matched for this one-night-only performance by this incredible artist, it’s Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas,” said AEG Presents svp Bobby Reynolds. “This will be a performance for the ages.” 

Garth Brooks was originally slated to play the stadium’s first concert on Aug. 22, 2020, but has been forced to postpone twice due to the pandemic. Brooks is now set to perform on July 10 -- one week after Illenium.  

“This will be an extraordinary night celebrating Illenium’s remarkable music and Las Vegas’ return to full volume,” said Life Is Beautiful partner Justin Weniger in a release. “This spectacular production will announce to the world that the Entertainment Capital of the World is back.” 

Tickets for Illenium’s Trilogy performance start at $59.50 and go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. PT.
