Allegiant Stadium 1st Live Performance, July 3,
Electric Dance Music artist Illenium will perform the 1st live show at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on July 3. Garth Brooks will perform a week later, July 10.
The country superstar was to set to become the first act to play Allegiant Stadium with his upcoming performance on July 10, which has been rescheduled twice due to coronavirus concerns from its previous dates of Aug. 22, 2020 and Feb. 27 of this year.
Instead, EDM star Illenium will be the one to christen the venue with a concert on July 3. The Chicago-native will perform a one-of-a-kind “trilogy” show consisting of three sets centered around his first three albums, 2016’s “Ashes,” 2017’s “Awake” and 2019’s “Ascend.”
“I feel like my last three albums need one huge final show and one huge final send off,” Illenium explained in a video posted on his social media accounts prior to the announcement of the concert. “So, that’s what this show is.”
The concert is being produced locally by AEG Presents and Life is Beautiful.
“This will be an extraordinary night celebrating Illenium’s remarkable music and Las Vegas’ return to full volume,” said Justin Weniger of Life Is Beautiful in a press release. “This spectacular production will announce to the world that the Entertainment Capital of the World is back.”
“It’s going to be the biggest show I’ve done yet. It’s going to be the biggest production I’ve done yet,” Illenium said in his video. “It’s going to be insane.”
This will also be the first real test of the Acoustics and Dynamics quality of Allegiant Stadium.
