In keeping with this blog’s concert theme this past Saturday, musician deadmau5 celebrated the release of his latest single “The Veldt” at Las Vegas nightclub XS in Steve Wynn’s Encore. And deadmau5’s fans were just as excited as he was as nearly 6,000 turned out to party and watch the electronic musician rock the stage.
Like most musicians who perform in Las Vegas, deadmau5 made his fans sweat a little as he didn’t take the stage until 1 a.m. Once he was up there he didn’t waste any time launching into some of his favorite tracks and new samplings. But again he was just making his fans wait before he performed his newest song “The Veldt” at 1:30 a.m. It seemed to be worth the wait as glow sticks swayed, fists pumped and hands clapped in approval of the instant hit.
That’s all the celebrity news I have for today but check back tomorrow for more and make sure you stay tuned for more details on Las Vegas’ summer concerts series.
