Porchester Hall in London yielded three sold out shows for trance trio Above & Beyond where they performed acoustic versions of their original productions for sold out audiences, some set to be released on their upcoming project. Based off the London performance’s success, two special Los Angeles performances have been slated for Oct 13th and 14th. Those who follow A&B on facebook saw that the historic Greek Theater has been chosen as the home for this special performance. Along with the announcement of venue, a one minute preview of “Love Is Not Enough” was released to quell anticipations of what an acoustic set could bring.
Paavo went on to explain in an interview about the project how all members of A&B play instruments and drew similarities between themselves and a band, and that this project has been on their mind for a while. Tony, who is credited with the original idea, cited his experience with the indie English band Sad Lovers & Giants as something that has helped prepare him for such a performance and that he wanted Jono and Paavo to experience the rush of performing live as well.
