After getting confirmation to attend Above & Beyond’s Acoustic tour this summer, what better way to prepare yourself then a recap of their last tour as classical musicians? This week, the trio gave us a special surprise: a two-hour video of their entire set at LA’s Hollywood Bowl. The show features some favorites from Acoustic I, as well as new acoustic renditions of songs from the band’s latest album at the time, We Are All We Need. The featured vocalists include long time collaborators Zoe Johnston and Justine Suissa as well as newcomers Cobi and Natalie Holmes. In addition, to live improvisation from the studio recordings that make the concert special, it is inspiring to hear the three composers talk about the meaning to all of the songs and share stories about their relationships with the vocalists. This recording is very timely, as it gives a fun preview of the tour to come. Acoustic III will feature songs from Common Ground and their companion EP, as well as an instrumental for their primal instrumental “Waltz.”
Check the full video out below. “Acoustic III” tour pre-sale began this week. Fans can pre-order “Acoustic III” here and purchase tickets to the tour now at AboveandBeyond.com/acoustic.
