Circle Talent Agency continues to expand, with the addition of agent Guy Oldaker, who brings acts including IlleniumLiquid Stranger and Break Science

Denver-based Illenium, who will be co-represented by Circle Talent partner Steve Gordon, has been on a tear, with boxoffice reports to Pollstar including selling out Myth in Saint Paul Dec. 22, with 3,300 tickets and $97,350 grossed, Aragon Ballroom in Chicago Dec. 14 (4,825, $120,625) and the Royal Oak Music Theatre in Michigan, which sold out 2,000 tickets and grossed $57,009 Dec. 13.

“I’m really excited to be working with Illenium, it’s such a positive act and the whole thing is great,” Circle Talent Agency Partner Steve Gordon told Pollstar. “He blew out Red Rocks in 24 hours, he’s on Coachella, and he just announced FVDED in The Park.” Illenium is No.  64 on this week’s Pollstar Global Concert Pulse, with an average gross of $68,908 per city based on boxoffice reports submitted within the last three months.

“Liquid Stranger is on the Excision tour and that entire tour of course is selling out again,” Gordon said, adding that Excision, the red-hot producer and brains behind his “50,000-watt Paradox” production setup, this year will roll out a new, three-night camping experience festival to be announced later.
