Above & Beyond Announce ABGT100 at Madison Square Garden, 10/18
Above & Beyond have announced that the 100th episode of their Group Therapy? radio show will be broadcast live from the World's Most Famous Arena - Madison Square Garden - in New York City, on Saturday, October 18.
The Madison Square Garden gig follows last year's sell-out ABGT050 show at London's legendary 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace. Above & Beyond become the first British DJs to headline Madison Square Garden and this will be Jono, Tony and Paavo's biggest headline show in the United States to date.
"To be able to bring this radio show to one of our favourite cities and one of the world's most iconic venues is really a dream come true for us," commented Above & Beyond.

Over their three critically-acclaimed studio albums, along with their recent Acoustic project, Above & Beyond 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 Brixton Academy to LA's Hollywood Palladium, to their famed 1 million people gig at Barra Beach in Rio de Janeiro in 2007.
