Above & Beyond are set to headline a 15,000-capacity show in London next year, as part of Creamfields' ongoing Steel Yard event series.
Heading to Finsbury Park on May Bank Holiday weekend, the British trance trio are tipped to take over the Steel Yard megastructure on Saturday 26th May, with Dutch superstar DJ Tiësto due to take charge the following evening on Sunday 27th May.
Above & Beyond have confirmed they have a tour documentary coming in early 2018.
Titled Above & Beyond Acoustic—Giving Up The Day Job, it focuses on the trio’s 11-city live tour in 2016.
The documentary has been made in conjunction with film marketing/distribution company Abramorama, who have produced documentaries for artists including The Beatles, Green Day and Neil Young.
Above & Beyond Acoustic—Giving Up The Day Job is planned to debut alongside Above & Beyond’s US tour at the beginning of 2018.
Above & Beyond took to The Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington State (US) for the 250th episode of their Group Therapy radio program. After live streaming the 16th and 17th event, Above & Beyond is now sharing the audio of the trance celebration for all to partake.
Available now via Spotify, ‘Group Therapy 250: Live from The Gorge Amphitheatre’ spans 31 tracks and includes cuts by Andrew Bayer, Ilan Bluestone, Mat Zo and Alex Vargas.
Above & Beyond have announced that their 6th studio album, entitled 'Common Ground', will be released in January 2018.
Alongside the album announcement, the trance trio have announced an album tour, with two dates already set in stone.
The trio have confirmed that they will be playing the Los Angeles Convention Centre on 29th December and New York's Barclays Centre on 27th January 2018, with more date to be announced in due course.
Above & Beyond have announced they will play London’s O2 Arena on Saturday 4th November, with the show set to be the trio’s only London performance in 2017. Following 2016’s acoustic tour, the event will see the trio back behind the decks.
“We still have fond memories of our first London gig to 200 people on a Thursday night in Turnmills, so to be at the stage where we’re taking on The O2 is a proper ‘pinch yourself’ moment.

Headlining the tour are Andrew Bayer and ilan Bluestone, who are touring as a b2b duo for the first time.
“It's an honor to play with super talented Bayer b2b”, says ilan. “He really does know how to deliver music and we just vibe off each other so it's gonna be amazing to combine forces!”

Jason Ross is one of the true rising stars in dance music. He’s been chosen by Above & Beyond for a collaboration on the club mix of ‘Fly To New York’, tapped by Seven Lions to remix the showstopper hit, ‘Creation’, working on mashups with Kaskade and most recently helming the latest Anjunabeats Worldwide mix and tour. The young beatsmith’s latest single, titled ‘Me Tonight’ and featuring Lauren Ray, was a Beatport Trance #1 almost instantly upon drop-age.
The artist’s green room in London’s Royal Albert Hall doesn’t quite match the scale of grandeur its main arena boasts. But for the talent fortunate enough to pace its floors in anticipation of a pending performance, it is special by association.
The room is bright, lit to assist the fine details of makeup and costume preparation. There is a cream-colored, tiled wall with a large clock hanging on it that reads 5:05pm and just beneath that, a simple black couch.
