Gareth Emery once described trance and lasers as the “perfect marriage.” This Fall, the British Trance DJ/producer is bringing the lovely couple to the PNE Forum in Vancouver, B.C., for a show unlike anything you’ve ever seen before!
Debuting in New York City last fall, with an “encore” in San Francisco earlier this Spring, Gareth Emery’s Laserface Tour is all about, well, the lasers! More than 100 of them are equipped on his production rig and are programmed to synch to the music. The goal?: To “BLOW YOUR MIND.”
Vancouver will bear witness to the next level of Laserface Saturday, September 22nd, Emery announced on Instagram Monday afternoon.

IT IS BACK. Time to blow many people’s minds (and prove a few people wrong while we’re at it). Read on…. . Yep, @nicelasers and I are working on a brand new #laserface show, bigger, better and revamped for 2018 🔥❤️🔥 . WHY WE CHOSE THESE CITIES. . VANCOUVER has been one of the most requested cities for Laserface and people there have been incredibly supportive of my music for a long time so it’s time to give back. I’ve played the PNE a few times before as part of bigger lineups so I’m fucking excited to get to bring our own show there 🔥 . And VEGAS? Well, the Vegas show is a bit of a gamble, which is fitting haha. People in ‘the industry’ love to bang on about how trance doesn’t work in Vegas, which is why trance artists (including me) usually sprinkle in the hits when they play clubs there. . But this time, we’re doing trance proper, in a beautiful theatre rather than a bottle service club with our full Laserface rig. Maybe the doubters will be right and only 100 people will show up, but I’ve got a feeling we’re going to prove there are a lot more proper trance fans in Vegas than people think . Plus, Vegas is an easy location for people to travel from almost anywhere in the US so get flights booked 🇬🇧🇺🇸🚘🚅🚁🛩✈️🚀🛫🛬🛸 . Pre-registration is open now: sign up with your email address at LASERFACE.GARETHEMERY.COM (also in bio) to register. . 📆 Tickets are on-sale July 30th. . Gaz x . PS FOLLOW @laserface_ for maximum hype and teaser pics / vids between now and the shows! . #garethemery #trancefamily #laserface
Providing support are Vancouver’s own, Union DJs. You never know who else might show up though! In San Francisco, trance music siren HALIENE, who collaborated with Emery on last year’s tune of the year, Saving Light, was added to the lineup for a live, vocal set.
After all presales, general admission tickets go on sale August 1. The two previous Laserface installments were sellout affairs, and with so much demand for a Vancouver stop, this one will be too.
