Above & Beyond returns to London for Group Therapy 400
Above & Beyond is celebrating their 400th episode of Group Therapy with a performance from London‘s River Thames. The event will reunite Paavo, Jono, and Tony, the group’s perennial members after being kept apart by the global pandemic “for the longest time” in the group’s 20 year history. A statement from the outfit alludes to the notion that the event won’t just be about looking towards the future, but taking a moment to look back at Above & Beyond’s illustrious past,
“It’s very strange approaching ABGT400 without the usual late nights in the studio together finishing off tracks we’ve been working on over the summer. We just haven’t been able to do that this year. ABGT400 will be the first time we’ve got together since March—that’s the longest time we’ve been apart in 20 years. Jono’s been working on a film score, Paavo’s been tinkering away at his beautiful lakeside studio in Finland, and Tony’s been on a deep odyssey, discovering the joys of livestreaming. As Paavo put it, the world is taking a deep breath, reflecting on how we’ve got to where we are. So, in keeping with that theme, that’s what this year’s Group Therapy celebrations are all about: looking back at the music that brought our family together. Happy birthday Anjunabeats!”Above & Beyond
The titan trance trio’s AGBT400 performance takes place on September 26 at 2:00 p.m. EST, and will feature a very limited run of Above & Beyond merchandise. The event will be available to stream on the group’s Twitch channel and Discord server, but the trailer is available below.
