“XS has experienced a monumental year with world-class electronic music artists taking over our stage,” said Jesse Waits, co-owner and managing partner of XS. “Tiësto is consistently highlighted as the world’s greatest DJ. To set a date with him only demonstrates the massive level of talent and extraordinary events we have in our plans for 2012.”

Tiësto has worked with artists as diverse as Nelly Furtado, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Goldfrapp, Jónsi from Sigur Rós, Diplo and Busta Rhymes. When he’s not collaborating with renowned talent, he’s jet setting his way around the globe, playing sold out shows to his adoring fans. His 2010 “Kaleidoscope World Tour” spanned more than 15 months and 175 dates across six continents playing to more than 1 million people. The hugely successful tour was recognized by Billboard Magazine, nominating Tiësto for two 2010 Billboard Touring Awards and placing him among Billboard’s Top 25 biggest grossing touring acts of 2010.

Most recently, Tiësto embarked on his “Club Life College Invasion Tour,” the largest dance music tour to ever hit the American college market. The two-week tour included stops at campuses across the United States and Canada, with the final set on October 8, 2011, at the Home Depot Stadium in Los Angeles. With a capacity of 26,000, this event was the largest single DJ show in U.S. history.

With its chic vibe and fashionable reputation, XS remains the place to see and be seen for celebrities, glitterati, locals and tourists alike. Table reservations are highly recommended (XS: 702-770-0097), and tickets can be purchased in advance at wantickets.com. XS is open Friday through Monday from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m., located on The Esplanade at Encore. For more information, visit www.xslasvegas.com.
