Last week, trance titans Above & Beyond dropped a pretty big hint that they’re planning a return trip to Australia for 2013. With details about the jaunt kept under wraps, guesses as to just what sort of tour this would be came in thick and fast – Sydneysiders had their fingers crossed for a Hordern gig, many hoped the boys would stay off the festival circuit and one prophetic comment wondered whether we’d see A&B on Australia Day.
Turns out, ITMers were pretty on-the-money. Above & Beyond announced the details of their 2013 tour this morning and they’re not doing things by halves, locking in a five-stop tour of big venues. The Brits are headed to Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and yep, Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion from the end of January. It’s sure to be well received news: the last time A&B were in Australia was earlier this year for Creamfields, but bar a one-off date at Marquee the trio didn’t do any club shows on that trip. If all this has piqued your interest, head to the A&B website to sign up for priority tickets.
