After announcing Sebastian Ingrosso as their resident DJ just yesterday, XS revealed today that Steve Angello will also host residency at XS Nightclub this year. With one announcement still remaining for tomorrow, one can only guess who that may be.
This past weekend, XS dropped a major teaser by posting 3 identical posts with the words “We Are Home” along with the dates 1.8.19, 1.9.19, and 1.10.19 noted in their post. With the font and presentation similar to that of Swedish House Mafia’s teasers throughout all of 2018, everyone had a hunch of what XS was hinting at. Now that both Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello have been announced, we can safely anticipate that Axwell will be revealed as the next XS resident DJ for this year.
The big question now is… will we be seeing the three perform together as Swedish House Mafia or will they just be performing separately as solo acts throughout their residency? According to Variety Magazine, a residency in Las Vegas for the joint Swedish act is very unlikely so don’t get your hopes up too high just yet. Venue locations announced so far for SHM’s tour later this year are all either at massive arenas or major festivals with capacities reaching up to 45,000 people. It would be shocking to see the trio perform at a posh nightclub with measly capacity of 3,000 attendees.
Another possibility would be the three DJs play as solo acts with surprise guest appearances here and there from either one or both of the remaining members of Swedish House Mafia. This seems like the more likely option but definitely less exciting compared to having them perform as a joint act.
Swedish House Mafia has been revealing 2019 tour dates over the past few months but we have still yet to see any US dates. Could XS Nightclub be Swedish House Mafia’s first stop in the United States? Stay tuned as we continue to report on this developing story.
