ILLENIUM etched her name permanently in the dance music history books on July 3 with her TRILOGY burst. Becoming the first artist to perform at Las Vegas’ brand new Allegiant Stadium, ILLENIUM seized a golden opportunity to say a final goodbye in person to his first three LPs, Ashes, wake up, and ascend, before Fallen embers passed the exit gates on July 16.
Whether you were lucky enough to be in Sin City or were one of the thousands enjoying the 4K and 16-camera livestream, everyone can agree that TRILOGY was a defining night for ILLENIUM, where it beat the hall capacity record for dance music. events in the United States – and the ultimate way for him not only to say goodbye to his previous albums, but also to usher in the fourth chapter of his music.
Before moving to the actual stage which was at the edge of the field’s end zone, ILLENIUM first appeared in the midst of a crowded crowd at Allegiant Stadium as he stood on top of a smaller and completely separate cabin. After an hour of walking the lane of nostalgia that ignited with his fan favorite Ashes introductory edition, ILLENIUM then revisited the two Awake and ascend in their entirety, bringing out none other than his two best friends in Said The Sky and Dabin for a pair of spooky live renditions of “Where’d U Go” and “Gold”. The night would end with 20 minutes Fallen embers overview, with ILLENIUM rinsing through a electric mixing of “Sideways” and its unpublished co-remix with Virtual Riot from the Tori Kelly assisted cut from the album “Blame Myself”, “Heavenly Side” with Matt Maeson, and finally “Crazy Times” alongside Said The Sky and Rock Mafia.
