Illenium took over New York City’s Terminal 5 for the beginning of a 3-night run at the venue, leading into a pair of shows in Chicago next weekend. While the Awake 2.0 set was as blisteringly beautiful as always, it wasn’t until Illenium’s speech at the end that perhaps the biggest cheer of the night was had.

After introducing each of his cohorts on stage and taking a family photo, Illenium addressed the crowd, “Yo I got some news today that I’m not really supposed to tell anybody, but I really want to tell you. I’m coming back next year and playing Madison Square Garden.”

This will be Illenium’s biggest solo show of his career at a venue that is sought after by pretty much every musical act in existence. No doubt 2019 will be Illenium’s biggest year yet!
