INCUBUS FIVE-NIGHT LIMITED ENGAGEMENT OCTOBER 7, 8, 11, 13 & 14 at 9:00 P.M.
Monday May 15, 2017
After two massive sold-out shows in September 2015, multi-platinum alternative rock heavyweight, Incubus, is back to rock even harder for an impressive five-night run at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Performances are scheduled for October 7, 8, 11, 13 and 14. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 19 at 10:00 A.M.
Since their formation in 1991, iconic rock band Incubus – Brandon Boyd [vocals], Mike Einziger [guitar, piano, backing vocals], José Pasillas II [drums], Chris Kilmore [turntables, keyboards], and Ben Kenney [bass] – has consciously and continually shifted its perspective with each subsequent album. “As a band, we’re collectively interested in challenging ourselves and hopefully finding new, innovative ways of writing music,” asserts Boyd. By 2017, the band’s sales exceeded 23 million worldwide, while landing four Top 5 debuts on the Billboard Top 200 and one No. 1 album. They’ve graced the stages of festivals everywhere from Lollapalooza and Air + Style to Download Festival and Pinkpop in addition to touring alongside the likes of Linkin Park, OutKast, Moby, Jane’s Addiction, Queens of the Stone Age and many more.
“We are so stoked to be bringing Incubus back to The Joint for an extended run,” said Bobby Reynolds, senior vice president of entertainment at AEG Presents. “They rocked the house when they performed at Hard Rock Hotel for two nights in 2015, and after their release of their new album, 8, I can’t wait to see what they’ll bring to the table this time around. It’s going to be an unbelievable show.”
After the release of 2015’s Trust Fall (Side A) EP and a packed summer amphitheater tour with Deftones, Incubus once again treaded uncharted territory. Einziger spent the past few years exponentially expanding his personal musical palette. Not only did he oversee production for The Internet’s Feel Good album and produce three songs for Tyler, The Creator’s chart-topping Cherry Bomb, but he also co-wrote Avicii’s six-time platinum smash “Wake Me Up” and served as musical director and performer for a much talked-about 2016 GRAMMY® Awards performance of “Where Are Ü Now” by Skrillex, Diplo, and Justin Bieber.
As the vision for the band’s eighth studio album, 8, came into focus during early 2017, Incubus added another level to the album by enlisting the perspective of longtime friend Skrillex for co-production and mixing. Einziger played Skrillex some mixes, and “a whole new world opened up” as the producer added his magic to 8. “It evolved organically out of my friendship with Skrillex,” Einziger elaborates. “Incubus is all about friendship. We transferred the synergy of working together into what the band was doing. As we put the final touches on everything, Skrillex brought another level to the album.”
“When we finished 8, we were flooded with this wave of gratitude,” Boyd leaves off. “The fact that so many people are willing to come on this weird ride with us is really humbling. We’re filled with this sense of awe around it. We’re very happy to share this record with everyone, and we hope they like it.”
