Above & Beyond's ABGT100 Show Sells Out at Madison Square Garden
Above & Beyond's Jono, Tony and Paavo have broached a true career milestone this week, having become not only the first British DJs to headline Madison Square Garden, but to sell it out as well.
This most recent accomplishment sits as a testament to the trio's loyal fans, both those in the New York area and the thousands of others flying in from around the country and the world. The iconic New York venue will host a live broadcast of the 100th Group Therapy? episode and Jono, Tony and Paavo are overjoyed to add another legendary chapter to the history of their annual live radio shows, which have been broadcast from Beirut, to Jayamahal Palace in Bangalore, India, to London's 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace.
"Having the chance to perform at the world's most famous arena, Madison Square Garden, is really the fulfilment of a career-long ambition for us. And celebrating #ABGT100 there is a huge honour. Thank you to all our loyal and lovely fans who have supported the event so far - see you in New York, New York." -Above & Beyond Above & Beyond have just released the music video for their latest song "Sticky Fingers," which is now viewable on their YouTube channel. Featuring their new vocalist Alex Vargas, "Sticky Fingers" will be available for download worldwide on Monday, May 19 via Anjunabeats/Ultra Records. The full release will be accompanied by a deep, dreamy house remix from fast rising Anjunadeep talent Lane 8 and an experimental drum & bass rework from Metalheadz's Om Unit.
Inspired by the cinema classic Vertigo by the legendary Alfred Hitchcock, the stylish film noir music video taps into track's themes of a love distraught and its ongoing psychological hold.Lingering memories of a broken love are felt as an intoxicant without antidote, as our protagonist fails to separate the imagined from the real. All this is vividly brought to life by the heartbreaking lament in the voice of Alex Vargas, who performs live in the video alongside the band themsevles. A downward spiral visualised by a throwback film noir set and shoot, the "Sticky Fingers" music video again highlights Above & Beyond's dedication to both style and substance.
