Above & Beyond release tour dates for acoustic shows
Before Above & Beyond became electronic music’s darlings, Paavo, Jono, and Tony were three classically-trained musicians well-versed in a variety of instruments. Their prior talent and affinity to music proved advantageous, as each of their productions possess a meticulous quality seen not often in most modern electronic music.
Two years ago, the trio decided to allow their fans an intimate insight into their creation process and re-work their most-adored classics into acoustic ones, contributing their own talents into each. Listeners were enamored with the result, swiftly selling out the three shows in Los Angeles and London and praising the album as some of their best work. By popular demand and for love of the project, Above & Beyond announced at the end of September that they would be resurrecting their acoustic egos and launching and international tour to some of the world’s most revered venues.
Announcement day has finally arrived, and listed among the venues are the prolific Sydney Opera House in Australia, Massey Hall in Canada, and Royal Albert Hall in the U.K. Other venues listed included a plethora of American theaters like the Hollywood Bowl and New York’s Beacon Theater. The official announcement video above previews a clip of an an exceptionally re-done “Peace Of Mind,” and stirs further excitement for what’s to come.
