Surrender Nightclub at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas announced today that Grammy Award-winning musician and producer will.i.am, of The Black Eyed Peas, will host and perform his first-ever New Year’s Eve DJ set in Las Vegas at the upscale nightlife venue (Photo credit: Amanda Nowak).
“Will.i.am is the ultimate renaissance man,” said Sean Christie, co-owner and managing partner of Surrender Nightclub. “From his musical accomplishments and creative endeavors to his contributions to humanitarian, educational, and political causes, he is a fascinating pop culture figure who draws in fans by the droves. We are thrilled to have him lead our biggest party of the year.”
Will.i.am’s DJ sets are renowned for being filled with hit songs. He feeds off the audience’s energy and reaction to his music to make each show unique.
“I don’t like to look at this as a performance,” said will.i.am before his Encore Beach Club set over Labor Day weekend. “I like to look at this as a conversation—making a beat and seeing how people react. I like to stay on my toes and see how it goes.”
Will.i.am is best known as the frontman and producer of the multi-platinum award-winning group, The Black Eyed Peas. The seven-time Grammy Award-winning group has sold 31 million albums and over 30 million singles on iTunes. On his own, will.i.am has established himself as a top music producer. He has collaborated on tracks with Justin Timberlake, John Legend, Nas, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Carlos Santana and Fergie.
Tickets are $150 for men and $50 for women. Early bird pricing of $125 for men and $50 for women is available through Thanksgiving at Wantickets.com. Pricing includes a two-hour open bar.
