Above & Beyond Announce ABGT050 Venue in London!


Above & Beyond have announced that the biggest event in their calendar, the annual 'Group Therapy' live radio broadcast, will be held at the legendary Alexandra Palace in London, one of the most iconic buildings in broadcasting history. On Saturday 26 October, for one night only, the band will celebrate the radio show's landmark 50th episode at one of the UK’s most historic venues. Following two sold-out Brixton Academy shows last year, ABGT050 will be Above & Beyond's biggest ever show in the capital and their only major London appearance of 2013.

London joins a select list of cities that includes Moscow, Los Angeles, Beirut and Bangalore, each of which has hosted A&B's prestigious live radio broadcast in recent years. To coincide with the ABGT050 announcement, Above & Beyond have released the after-movie from November's ABGT001 celebration in Bangalore, India: "The first ever 'Trance Around The World' show was broadcast from the Ministry Of Sound studios in London back in 2004 and ran until TATW450 in India, where we launched Group Therapy Radio 001. Choosing London means we get to celebrate the 50th episode of Group Therapy, as well as 500 radio shows to date, in the city where our radio journey first began." Above & Beyond. Jono, Tony and Paavo will be joined at Alexandra Palace by some of the scene's most exciting talents for what will be the biggest Group Therapy event line up to date.
