Above & Beyond postpone first few ‘Acoustic III’ shows in April

Above & Beyond are postponing their first three ‘Acoustic III’ shows.

Above & Beyond’s much-anticipated ‘Acoustic III’ concert was slated to kick off on April 24 & 25 at London’s Alexandra Palace Theatre, followed by a show at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall on April 27.

All three shows have now been postponed due to fears over the spreading COVID-19 pandemic.

“The shows are being postponed and current tickets will remain valid for these re-scheduled shows. Further details including new dates will be announced in due course. While this is a hugely disappointing turn of events, it’s also the right thing to do. Please stay home, stay safe and look out for each other,” Above & Beyond announced on Twitter today.

Above & Beyond’s much-loved Acoustic concept revisits several of the best loved songs from their artist albums, as well as classics from their wide back catalogue, and reworks them as rich orchestral acoustic arrangements.

For this year’s new ‘Acoustic III’ album and concert series, the trio will feature completely new arrangements of some of the biggest hits from their ‘Common Ground’ album including ‘Northern Soul’, ‘My Own Hymn’ and ‘Happiness Amplified’, plus reinterpretations of 2019 club singles ‘There’s Only You’, ‘Waltz’ and more.

This week, Above & Beyond released their second single from their forthcoming ‘Acoustic III’ album, a soulful Acoustic rendition of their hit ‘Sahara Love’ with Zoë Johnston – have a listen below!

Their first three ‘Acoustic III’ shows in London join an ever-expanding list of concerts, tours and festivals that have pulled up stakes in an effort to control the virus.
