React Presents is thrilled to host Above & Beyond’s acoustic headlining show at the legendary Chicago Theatre on Wednesday, May 11, 2016 and Thursday, May 12, 2016 in support of the group’s new album, Acoustic II, set for release in the spring of 2016. Above & Beyond will embark on a tour across three continents at some of the most prestigious music venues in the world. Tickets are on sale now.
Above & Beyond (Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness, Paavo Siljamäki) teased new material from the forthcoming acoustic album with a downtempo interpretation of festival anthem “Hello.” The new album is a follow up to the chart topping 2014 album Acoustic and will be produced in collaboration with producer Bob Bradley.
Acoustic II will feature new arrangements of some of the biggest hits from Above & Beyond’s chart topping LP We Are All We Need, as well as some of their popular hits such as “Alchemy” and “No One On Earth.” Fans can pre-order the Acoustic II CD from anjunastore.com now.
“We had so much fun doing the first run of acoustic shows and it was really the reaction from our fans that convinced us to tour it more extensively. We’ve ticked some pretty impressive venue boxes with this tour—somebody pinch us!”
The group’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 and more.
