Boston, MA – MSG Entertainment, Citi Performing Arts Center, and NV Concepts Unlimited announced today that Above & Beyond will take the Wang Theatre stage on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at 8:00PM in support of their new album ‘Acoustic II.’ Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, December 4, 2015 at 10:00AM.
Above & Beyond’s acoustic project began in 2013 with a short run of shows including London’s Porchester Hall and a two-night sold out run at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre. With Paavo Siljamäki on grand piano, Jono Grant on Rhodes and Tony McGuinness on guitars and vocals, the trio performed as part of a 15-piece band alongside vocalists Zoë Johnston, Annie Drury and Alex Vargas for what Billboard magazine described as ‘…one of the finest shows in dance music history.’ ‘Acoustic II’ will feature lush new arrangements of some of the biggest hits from Above & Beyond’s Billboard Dance Chart topping LP “We Are All We Need”, as well as some of the most popular Above & Beyond hits from years gone by, including “Alchemy” and “No One On Earth.”
Over their four critically acclaimed studio albums, along with their acoustic project, 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.
