Multi-platinum, GRAMMY-winning DJ and producer Zedd is the latest artist announced to the music lineup to the Coors Light Birds Nest later this month– the popular entertainment venue at the Waste Management Phoenix Open Presented by The Ak-Chin Indian Community. Hip hop artist Nelly is the confirmed opener for Saturday night. After closing out the event, Zedd will zip through residency at Omnia in Las Vegas and then embark on a tour in Asia covering Japan, China and the Philippines.
Zedd’s latest release is a collaboration with Iggy Azalea on the motion picture soundtrack for Pitch Perfect 3: Boom Boom. “Zedd’s highly texturized, clock-ticker beat brings the track to life with a snarl. It’s synthy, bassy and bossy as all hell. It’s fighting music, for sure, something to get you right and cocky before taking the final stage.” (Billboard)
Zedd made his debut with Clarity after signing with Interscope in 2012 and has been breaking down barriers surrounding music genres ever since. His latest hit singles include “Get Low” with Liam Payne and “Stay” with Alessia Cara, which earned Zedd his first #1 at Top 40 Radio. In 2015, Zedd released True Colors, which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. Throughout his career, Zedd has worked with a diverse range of artists to create hits, including Hayley Williams on platinum hit “Stay The Night,” which racked up more than 400 million streams, and Selena Gomez on the platinum track “I Want You To Know,” which spent four weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.
A classically trained musician born to two musicians, he primarily produces and performs electro house music, but has diversified his genre and musical style, drawing influences from progressive house, dubstep, and classical music. Although born in Russia, Zedd grew up and began his career in Kaiserslautern, Germany.
With the addition of Zedd, the Coors Light Birds Nest lineup is now set. Flo Rida and Kelley James will kick things off on Wednesday, Jan. 31; Florida Georgia Line and Chris Lane take to the stage on Thursday, Feb. 1; One Republic will perform on Friday, Feb. 2; Nelly and Zedd will close out the concert series on Saturday, Feb. 3.
