Above & Beyond‘s fans are still reeling from their Above & Beyond Group Therapy 150 (ABGT150) show in Sydney, and it looks like they’re going to be completely bowled over by their latest major announcement.
The London-based trance trio Paavo Siljamäki, Tony McGuinness, and Jono Grant announced “Acoustic II”, which will include a new acoustic album and acoustic tour at “the world’s most iconic venues”. And it’s happening in 2016.

The new album and tour is a follow up to the successful predecessor #ABAcoustic album, which was released last year. That album came with acoustic performances at the Porchester Hall in London and The Greek Theater in Los Angeles, which showcased the trio reworking their music in an intimate live setting with the help of a 15-piece orchestra.
The Los Angeles show also featured a surprise appearance by Skrillex.
They have since updated their site upon the above announcement, which now opens to a new microsite.
On the page, it reads:
We are pleased to announce the return of Above & Beyond “Acoustic” in 2016. Sign-up for more details on a new album and a tour of the world’s most iconic venues.
Excited? Whether or not the new acoustic tour will bring them here or anywhere in the Southeast Asian region, for that matter, is still a big question waiting to be answered. But like you, we’re hoping that they’ll come back to Malaysia next year 🙂
