Celebrating the 30th anniversary of his seminal debut album Illmatic, hip-hop icon Nas will perform three shows at the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas over Labor Day weekend.

Alongside the Las Vegas Philharmonic, Nas is set for shows August 29 and 21 and September 1 at the intimate venue. Tickets, which start at $69.95 go on sale for the AEG Presents-produced shows May 24 at 10 a.m. Pacific at Ticketmaster.com.

“Las Vegas has always served as a creative outlet for my music, and these performances will take that to the next level,” Nas said in a release. “I am excited to partner with the Las Vegas Philharmonic to bring this first-of-its-kind performance to Encore Theater and to showcase my music to my fans in Las Vegas in a whole new way.”

“We could not be more thrilled to welcome Nas to Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas for this historic collaboration with the Las Vegas Philharmonic to celebrate one of the greatest hip-hop albums ever made,” said Bobby Reynolds, Senior Vice President, AEG Presents Las Vegas. “Marrying Nas’ legendary catalog with the unparalleled sound of the Las Vegas Philharmonic Is guaranteed to be an unforgettable and must-see experience for all Nas fans, and there is no venue more perfect in Las Vegas for this collaboration or a better place to be this Labor Day Weekend for entertainment than Encore Theater.”

Nas spent 2022 and 2023 touring with Wu-Tang Clan; coincidentally (or not), the Wu became the first hip-hop act with a Vegas residency with their run at The Theater at Virgin Hotels earlier this year. Highlights from that tour include a $1,049,698 gross at Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena October 18, 2023, selling 10,072 tickets, according to Pollstar Boxoffice reports.

Nas is repped by WME’s Brian Cohen, Kevin Shivers and Julie Colbert. Management is provided by Emagen Entertainment Group.
