Above & Beyond to play a hometown show at London’s O2 Arena
The O2 Arena is one of the world’s premier concert arenas, hosting every major act across musical genres, and now London‘s own Above & Beyond for a special show on Saturday, November 4. The iconic trance trio will be playing at their largest London venue to date at this special one-off event.
Members Jono, Tony, and Paavo are playing the O2 with a proper DJ set, after wrapping up their Acoustic Tour, which saw them travelling the world with a symphony orchestra, re-imagining the lush, beautiful trance landscapes as classical pieces. The O2 will be specially-configured to transform the seating into a massive dance floor, what Kylie Minogue once dubbed “the biggest disco in town,” with tickets priced for £29.50 in the tiers, and £39.50 for the general admission dance floor.
Noting the significance of playing at the O2, Above & Beyond commented “We still have fond memories of our first London gig to 200 people on a Thursday night.” They are promoting their latest single, “Alright Now” with a vocal feature from frequent collaborator Justine Suissa.
The O2 is an arena par excellence, continually ranking at the top of all measurements. It is the most-attended arena in the world, selling twice as many tickets as runner up Madison Square Garden in New York City. It also holds the distinction of being the world’s largest building in terms of floor space.
