Above & Beyond will bring their Acoustic III tour to the Boch Center Wang Theatre on stage Tuesday, June 2.
Above & Beyond, or Jono, Tony and Paavo as they are better known to their legions of fans around the world, have been at the forefront of electronic dance music for two decades.
Founders of the iconic Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep record labels and hosts of a weekly radio show, that reaches millions of dance lovers every Friday (Group Therapy), the trio have earned two GRAMMY™️ nominations for anthems “Northern Soul” feat. Richard Bedford and “We’re All We Need” feat. Zoë Johnston. In 2018, the band’s fourth electronic album, Common Ground, debuted at number three on the Official Billboard Album Chart.
Described by UK music bible Q Magazine as “the world’s biggest cult band”, Above & Beyond’s enviable list of sold out shows includes headline performances at historic venues like Madison Square Garden NYC, The Hollywood Bowl, The Sydney Opera House, Royal Albert Hall London, Red Rocks Amphitheater and record-breaking turnouts for their own festival events on LA’s Huntington Beach and at The Gorge Amphitheater in Washington State.
Songwriters first, producers second, Above & Beyond’s unwavering commitment to their craft has fuelled a career that many electronic artists today might only dream of: four acclaimed studio albums, 14 compilation albums, two ‘acoustic’ albums and a stand-alone album for yoga and meditation – not to mention innumerable club cuts and dance remixes.
In 2020, the band will release their third Acoustic album on Anjunabeats which will be supported by a tour of iconic music halls in the UK, USA, and Canada.
To further support the band’s efforts to lessen the impact of touring on the environment, for every ticket sold a tree will be planted via One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization that plants trees all over the world to fight climate change, protect biodiversity, empower communities and restore our planet.
