Globally renowned electronic trio, Above & Beyond, announced they would introduce their massive Common Ground tour at the Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC) on Friday, December 29. Presented by Insomniac and Exchange LA, the show marks the third monumental dance music gathering to take place at LACC in the venue’s history. Above & Beyond will bring an immersive performance to thousands of fans ahead of their sixth studio album and a worldwide tour.
“For one night, the Los Angeles Convention Center becomes our Common Ground: a place for us to enjoy the music we love, together. This is the kick-off to our album tour and is our first solo LA show since the Hollywood Bowl. We’re very excited to be playing at one of the biggest all GA venues in LA for the first time and hope to see you on the dance floor!” – Above & Beyond
The Grammy-nominated producers deliver the news after wrapping a sold-out show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, followed by the debut of their latest film project, “Above & Beyond Acoustic – Live From The Hollywood Bowl.” In celebration of the 250th episode of their radio show, “Group Therapy,” Above & Beyond produced ABGT250, a milestone event at The Gorge Amphitheater featuring acts like Seven Lions, Luttrell, Yotto, and more. Fans from all over the world experienced ABGT250 together during the Twitter live stream of the breathtaking two-day concert. Showing no signs of slowing down, Above & Beyond will bring 2017 to an epic close by kicking off their global Common Ground tour at the city’s historic LACC.
Over their six critically acclaimed studio albums, including their acoustic and OceanLab projects, ABOVE & BEYOND – aka Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamaki – have continually been celebrated for placing real musicianship and songwriting at the heart of what they do. While their famed club mixes have resonated with the dance generation, the songs behind them have touched fans of all ages across the globe. As influenced as much by Jeff Buckley or Bon Iver as they are by their deep love of electronic music, ABOVE & BEYOND’s songs and lyrics have been sung back to them at the world’s biggest stadiums and stages – from Alexandra Palace, to Madison Square Garden, to the Hollywood Bowl, to their famed one million people gig at Barra Beach in Rio de Janeiro in 2007.
This will be the third dance music event presented by Insomniac and Exchange LA at the LACC, drawing consistent sold-out crowds for the past two years with chart-topping acts like The Chainsmokers and Kaskade. Together, Insomniac and Exchange LA have produced hundreds of club events in Downtown Los Angeles. Exchange LA will also host the official afterparty with a special deep set by Above & Beyond following the Convention Center show. Buy tickets here.
