Above & Beyond return to LA on their Group Therapy Tour! Check out the details of their LA stop as they embark on their North America Tour this year:
On May 18th, Above & Beyond will return to Los Angeles, playing the landmark Shrine Auditorium during Part 2 of their 2012 North American Tour.
In 2010 Jono, Paavo & Tony sold out LA’s Hollywood Palladium for their 350th radio show (TATW) celebrations, the biggest party on the Anjunabeats calendar. In 2011, they sold out two shows at the same venue in just 48 hours. This year they return toCalifornia to take on one of LA’s biggest and most historical venues, bringing the full Group Therapy experience with them.
Centered around their critically acclaimed second artist album ‘Group Therapy’ (“the biggest artist album of the year” -Mixmag) – which features the hits “Sun & Moon” and “Thing Called Love”, Above & Beyond’s show takes the DJ set up into the realm of concert theater with emotive visuals, live video messaging from the band, and a story-telling theme, creating a unique dance floor experience for Above & Beyond’s legions of Los Angeles fans.
As described by Jono from Above & Beyond, “LA has always been an extremely special place for us where some of our most dedicated fans live. It’s one of our favorite places in the world to perform, and we can’t wait to bring Group Therapy back for 2012.”
After last years sell-out shows, Above & Beyond are establishing a priority accesssign up system, which will guarantee their biggest fans get the first chance at buying tickets to be part of the #GroupTherapyLA experience.
