For their highly anticipated Acoustic USA performance in Los Angeles on October 12, British dance act Above & Beyond will follow in the footsteps of some of the greatest bands of our time and perform at LA’s legendary Greek Theatre.
Due to an overwhelming response to the pre-sale ticket sign-up, the band have also announced a second performance the following day on October 13.
To coincide with this announcement, A&B have released a very short preview of “Love Is Not Enough” (Acoustic) atSoundcloud.com/aboveandbeyond. A studio album of the newly arranged tracks is set for release later this year, alongside a film of Above & Beyond’s now legendary acoustic shows at London’s Porchester Hall.
Above & Beyond said: “When we first set off on our acoustic adventure, we never thought we would eventually be bringing the show to one of the most iconic open-air music venues in America. Performing under the stars at the Greek Theatre is going to be a very special experience for us and, we hope, for everyone who’s able to join us.”
The Greek Theatre, a renowned 6000 capacity open-air venue, is one of the most legendary in the US, boasting a rich history of live music including performances from Paul McCartney, Adele and Pearl Jam, through to contemporary acts like The National, The Weeknd and Passion Pit.
For this LA gig, Jono, Tony and Paavo will be playing a variety of live instruments including piano, guitar and cello, and will be joined on stage by an eight-piece band and vocalists including Zoe Johnston. The show will also be an exclusive opportunity to hear at least one brand new track from the next Above & Beyond artist album.
You can sign up for priority access to pre-sale tickets at www.aboveandbeyond.nu/acoustic. The pre-sale will open on August 14 and any remaining tickets will go on general sale on August 16.
The October 12 and 13 shows will run from 8-11pm and are a co-promotion between Nederlander Concerts and Insomniac Events.
About Above & Beyond
Over their three critically acclaimed studio albums, Above & Beyond have continually been celebrated for placing real musicianship and songwriting at the heart of what they do. While their famed club mixes have resonated with the dance generation, the songs behind them have touched fans of all ages across the globe. As influenced as much by Jeff Buckley or Bon Iver as they are by their deep love of electronic music, Above & Beyond’s songs and lyrics have been sung back to them at the world’s biggest stadiums and stages – from Brixton Academy to LA’s Hollywood Palladium, to their famed 1 million people gig at Barra Beach in Rio de Janeiro in 2007.
