On July 3rd, the enchanting Allegiant Stadium (US) was pulsating and throbbing with music – the showstopper stadium had opened its doors for the first time to a sold out concert for electronic artiste Illenium performing ‘TRILOGY’, a special three-set concert featuring his previous three albums – Ashes, Awake and Ascend. DJs 3LAU (American DJ) and CloudNone (musical artiste) opened the night with hourlong performances each. The concert marked the first musical performance at the venue over the Fourth of July holiday weekend and had the capacity crowd swooning and grooving.

‘Allegiant Stadium’ stated that the anticipation of the show was felt through the highly energetic and illuminated crowd pouring into the venue to experience what would be a historic night for Illenium closing out his first three albums. The entire show was also live streamed internationally.

Located adjacent to the world-famous Las Vegas Strip (US), Allegiant Stadium is a global events destination and the newest state-of-the-art entertainment venue in Las Vegas. Home of the Las Vegas Raiders of the National Football League (NFL) and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Rebels college football team, Allegiant Stadium is ideally located for both visitors and locals. The technologically advanced stadium is fully enclosed and climate-controlled with a capacity of up to 65,000.

As one of the most successful crossover electronic artistes today, Denver-based producer/DJ Illenium, Nick Miller, has elevated dance music via his bold, progressive take on the genre. His expansive sound, which mixes elements of celestial electronic, mellow alternative, rock-fuel dubstep, emotional indie and pop-tinged bass music, has topped the US charts, and garnered more than five billion collective streams.

Recognized as one of Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Artistes of the 2010s, Illenium brings his dynamic music to life via his live show, which has dominated festivals like Coachella (the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is an annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, in the Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert), Lollapalooza (annual four-day music festival held in Chicago), Bonnaroo (The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is an American annual four-day music festival held in Tennessee), and the Electronic Daisy Carnival (EDC) (the largest electronic dance music festival held in North America). His 2019 Ascend Tour, which featured a five-piece live band, sold out landmark venues like the 20,789-capacity Madison Square Garden in New York City, 20,000-capacity STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California, and three consecutive nights at the 9,525-capacity Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado.

The ‘Allegiant Stadium’ further stated that Illenium’s three-set commemorative concert was filled with incredible choreographed lasers beaming in every direction of the stadium with interactive color-synchronized guests’ wristbands. Pyrotechnics were blasting flames and fireworks along the end stage, centerstage and on the general admission floor, and mesmerizing digital art streaming on the stadium LED boards.

The show brought closure to the album trio and ushered in a new journey with the July 16th release of his new fourth album – ‘Fallen Embers’.

The sold out concert debuted the opening of the Wynn Field Club offering a one-of-a-kind nightclub experience inside an NFL stadium -something which only Las Vegas can deliver.

Recalled Illenium, “‘TRILOGY’ at Allegiant Stadium was a highlight of my career and a dream come true. I feel so blessed to have the best fans in the world that continually support me day after day – they are the reason this was all possible!”

Gushed Chris Wright, General Manager, Allegiant Stadium, “Illenium’s ‘TRILOGY’ concert at Allegiant Stadium was a night to remember. His impressive production, light show and pyrotechnics truly revealed the capabilities of what this venue can do for some of the largest entertainment acts in the business.”
