The Above & Beyond Acoustic II Tour stopped at legendary venues around the world from Royal Albert Hall in London to Down Under at the Sydney Opera House. They also touched down stateside at iconic spaces like the Beacon Theater in New York and The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, which is where the performance portion of the documentary is centered.
“The acoustic project was a huge undertaking for us but the end result was massively rewarding. We look forward to collaborating with Abramorama on the release of the film and sharing our acoustic experience with fans around the world.”
