We knew Deadmau5 couldn’t stay away. After an extended hiatus from Las Vegas gigs, including an abrupt departure four months into his two-year contract with Hakkasan, Deadmau5 is returning to the Strip with a set at XS on April 25, followed by another at Encore Beach Club the next day.
The former headliner’s last scheduled gig was July 26 at Hakkasan, followed by a sudden absence from the megaclub’s roster amidst rumors that he was “done with Vegas” and fed up with the nightclub scene. The DJ returned to his old pre-Hakkasan stomping grounds at XS with a surprise set in November, but hasn’t been seen here since.
No word as to whether future dates are planned for him at XS or anywhere else in Las Vegas. Elsewhere, Deadmau5 will hit the international festival circuit this summer with a slate of shows scheduled for August.
