Jody Wisternoff is on warm up duties at the venue from 7pm, before the live broadcast begins at 9pm.
Celebrating 50 shows of their Group Therapy radio show (and their 500th radio show to date), Group Therapy 050 in London will be the latest in a long line of twitter-trending marathon radio events from Above & Beyond. With the radio show going out to over 20 million people each week, previous live broadcasts have illuminated legendary global venues such as LA’s Hollywood Palladium, the Forum de Beyrouth in Beirut and the Jayamahal Palace in Bangalore, India.
The UK’s biggest electronic music trio recently completed two sold-out acoustic shows at LA’s Greek Theatre, where they were joined on stage by Sonny Moore aka Skrillex for the closing night. With LA stars such as Azealia Banks in the crowd, the two sold-out Greek Theatre shows represent another landmark success for the pioneering British act.
A film of Above & Beyond’s recent acoustic performance at London’s Porchester Hall will be released alongside an acoustic studio album in early 2014. The film was made in partnership with VICE’s Thump channel.
