Looks like Tiesto will be returning to Cohen Stadium on May 6.
He last performed there two years ago as part of his "Kaleidoscope" tour, a visual and beat-crazy extravaganza.
He's coming back with all new show and set about a month after the launch of his new "Club Life" mix series, the first edition of which will be "Club Life Volume 1 — Las Vegas," out April 5.
Tickets for the Cohen show are $35, $70 VIP, on sale now on his website, tiesto.com.

• Bri Bragwell, 23, of Las Cruces is one of the 10 finalists on "CMT's Next Superstar," a new talent contest debuting April 8 on the country music cable channel. It's a 10-episode series that sticks all 10 candidates — five men, five women — in a house together. Gee, what an original idea.
When they're not fighting and falling in love for the cameras (no, I haven't seen it, but feel like I have), the contestants will be put through music biz challenges and performances, which will be judged by celebrity guests. One will be eliminated each week by popular vote.
The show is produced by Simon Lythgoe, son of "American Idol" producer Nigel Lythgoe, who also is involved.
• El Paso Comic Con won't return until the fall, but its organizers are hosting "EPCON 2011 Jam Night" at 7 p.m. March 25 at The Percolator, 217 N. Stanton.
It will feature performances by Kids of Castro, Infamousjsus, Spydalee the Illadopest, Terror Eyes and Murder Remedy, who'll play while artists from Broken Tree Comics, Adervsary Comix, 656 Comics, Jimmy Daze Comics, Phi3 Comics, Urban Studios and Jaime Carrillo help create a piece of art, called a jam piece, which will be auctioned for charity at the fall comic convention.
They'll be joined by graphic designers John Armbruster, Joey Cuellar, Ashton Hollar and Annette Padilla.
Admission is only 5 bucks at the door.

• Local teen pop singer Emil, a 16-year-old Coronado High School student, has landed the first single from his next album on two Independent Music Network charts. "You Must Have Made Somebody Happy" is No. 4 on its mainstream chart and No. 3 on its country chart.
It also was the second most added song on the New Music Weekly country charts.
• Former teen pop sensations Hanson, who led a Japan relief concert at SXSW, will release the second single from their Sonic Ranch-recorded album "Shout it Out" on April 5.

• Look for Pete Anderson, best known as Dwight Yoakam's one-time producer, to play King's X on April 28. Anderson's a mean guitar player and solo artist in his own right, whose new album "Even Things Up" came out on Jan. 25.
Fun side note: Pete's publicist is Karen Leipziger, who also handles former Texas folk and children's music duo Trout Fishing in America. Trout fans may recall that the band rose from the ashes of the great '70s Houston band St. Elmo's Fire (they predated the movie).
The duo's Ezra Idlet is married to former El Pasoan (and Irvin grad) Karen Thom, with whom I attended Texas Tech in the '70s. Karen was in town for the C-USA basketball tournament last week. Her son, Steven Idlet, is the center for the Tulsa Hurricanes, who lost to the UTEP Miners in the semifinal.
• Look for another El Paso Blues Society Jam, hosted by Austin Jimmy Murphy, at 8 p.m. March 24 at the House of Rock. They'll provide drums, a bass rig and PA. Guitarists must bring their own instruments and amps.
• Rapper Waka Flocka Flame, who'll play a car show April 30 at Cohen Stadium, is working on an album with fellow Brick Squad member Gucci Mane. Called "The Ferrari Boys," it's due out this spring, Mane told Billboard last week.
Tickets for Waka's show are $15 at diablos.com.
• The other big April 30 show, the Neon Desert Music Festival, sold all 1,000 of its $25 tickets. Tickets for the all-day festival in and around Cleveland Square Park are $35 on its site, neondesertmusicfestival.com, All That Music & Video and other outlets.
Headliners of the four-stage event include the Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group, CSS, Kinky and Los Amigos Invisibles, with locals such as Radio La Chusma, Frontera Bugalu, the Lusitania and the Royalty.
• Speaking of those cumbia-crazy Frontera Bugalu-ers, don't forget their release party for singles "Embarazar" and "Grandes Amores" will be at 9 p.m. March 26 at the House of Rock. They'll be jointed by Kontra Golpe and Noise Manifesto.
Cover is $5.
