Above & Beyond Perform at Unveiling of Virgin Galactic’s Spaceship Launch!

A monumental moment in history since man first set foot on the moon!
Want to fly to space? Well now, you can — for $200,000. Virgin Galactic is the world’s first consumer space travel operator! And what’s more? They chose British trance producers Above & Beyond to celebrate the unveiling of the world’s first commercial passenger spacecraft with their anthemic club track “Buzz”. Listen to it and you’ll hear samples from the dialogue of Buzz Aldrin’s lunar landing in 1969.
The event took place in the Mojave Desert yesterday — December 7, 2009. After the unveiling, the group played an exclusive DJ set in front of an audience of 800 dignitaries, celebrities, future astronauts, and global media members. Governor Schwarzenegger was also at the event!
Above & Beyond’s Jono Grant said “We’re big fans of all things space-related and so in terms of dream gigs, this up there alongside our performance in Rio to one million people. We’re now hoping to persuade Richard to let us DJ on the first Virgin Galactic passenger flight into space.”
Clubbing on the moon? Dancing under the stars? I say… good luck team – hope you make it up there!
Here is an article from the LA Times with more detail on the event itself.
Check out this video of Above & Beyond’s “Buzz”:
