Above & Beyond Joined by Skrillex for Sold-Out Show at Greek Theatre

Above & Beyond were joined on stage by Skrillex on Sunday night for a groundbreaking acoustic show at the Greek Theatre in LA. Having attended the first of the 2 sold-out shows at the legendary venue, the EDM star and former From First To Last band member loved it so much that he accepted their invitation to join them on stage for the second night’s performance of “Black Room Boy.”

Above & Beyond – Black Room Boy

With LA stars such as Azealia Banks in the crowd, Greek Theatre shows represent a landmark success for the pioneering British act, and will be followed by their sold-out DJ show at London’s Alexandra Palace on October 26.

For these special acoustic shows on both sides of the Atlantic, Jono, Tony and Paavo returned to their formative roots as live musicians. Joined by a 13-piece band including a string quartet, harp, brass and percussion, and vocalists Zoe Johnston, Alex Vargas and Annie Drury, the trio presented their best-known songs in mostly acoustic form with the help of musical director and long time collaborator, Bob Bradley.

Playing songs from their 3 critically acclaimed artist albums (2 as Above & Beyond, and one as OceanLab), the trio focused back in on the musicianship and songwriting that lies at the core of all they do.
