Yesterday Kayzo officially announced to fans on social media special news. The multi-genre artist stated he will be performing his biggest headline show ever. On May 6th, 2023 Kayzo will be headlining the iconic Kia Forum and debuting his Unleashed XL show. This comes as a major announcement as it is not only his first headline show in nearly 5 years, but his greatest of his career. Last weekend at Escape he gave fans at his set the first heard exclusive news about his upcoming show. That moment as said by Kayzo was an extremely special and full circle moment. From performing his first ever live show at an art car installation 10 years ago at Escape, to closing out the festival at one of the main stages with that news was monumental for the artist.
Over the past decade Kayzo has been no stranger to the limelight in the dance music industry. With his experimental and genre bending sound he has collaborated on numerous projects with artists from all backgrounds. From Slander, to Valentino Khan, to the legendary Papa Roach with his “Last Resort” remix, Kayzo has seemingly done it all.
This year was a major year for him in his career. 2022 started off with a bang as he traveled across North America for his 19 stop New Breed tour. Kayzo performed in major cities all across the US and Canada with support from fellow dubstep powerhouses Kai Wachi, Phase One, and more. Following the success of his tour Kayzo headlined both Hard PNW, and EDC Las Vegas at the Circuit Grounds.
Additionally this year also marked the release of his third full length studio album New Breed. The 20 track album included powerful features and some of his best work to date. This album showcased the extreme lengths he can go with his production. From hard hitting base, to head banging dubstep, to heavy metal rock, this album was a ferocious blend of his signature rock and dance music sound. You can stream the full length album below on Spotify.
What We Can Expect From Unleashed XL
With the massive strides he has taken over the years Kayzo has become a dominant name in the dance music industry. For years he has been a leading force in the nu-metal dance music wave and has influenced fellow big name artists such as Sullivan King through his work. His music has successfully earned the respect of many artists and fans outside of dance music.
During this show we can expect to see production from him unlike any before. With previous collaborations in rock and roll and metal we can anticipate that this show will not only include live mixing on the decks, but live instruments and vocalists to support. When Kayzo performs he brings power, passion, electricity, and rage with his ultimate experimental sound. With his unconventional tenacity we can expect there to be extreme surprises for fans at his show, and potential special guests.
Furthermore, if one thing can be certain it is that fans at this show should expect the unexpected. Stayed tuned for updates regarding ticket sales and more.
