ABOVE & BEYOND made history this weekend on Saturday, October 18, becoming the first British DJs to headline and sell out New York's iconic Madison Square Garden. Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamäki crowned a momentous night by debuting a raft of exclusive material from their forthcoming artist album WE ARE ALL WE NEED (Anjunabeats/Ultra Music) set for release January 20, 2015; with the gig streamed live to fans all over the world and reaching the number one global trending topic on Twitter.
With fans flying in from all corners of the globe, decked in homemade Group Therapy-themed banners and clothing, the MSG event confirmed ABOVE & BEYOND's status as the most fanatically followed act in the electronic music sphere. Dreams came true on the night for two lucky fans when Tony McGuinness handpicked them from the crowd and invited them up on to the Madison Square Garden stage to “Push The Button,” where they were joined by vocalist Alex Vargas. The unforgettable moment is captured here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vwvgBWVGr0
A further indication of the fan frenzy around ABGT100 was seen on Friday, October 16 when fans gathered on Times Square for premiere of the new video for album title track "We're All We Need.” With the band themselves appearing briefly at the scene, the frenzy recalled Beatlemania until police moved in with horses to disperse the enormous crowd.

Zoe Johnston) was also one of many exclusive tracks debuted at The Garden (http://youtu.be/6-qcJAVDoHI), during an event that brought a unique and electric atmosphere to the legendary venue. In a set that was laden with exclusive material from their globally renowned Anjunabeats label, the trio treated fans to further album exclusives such as the beautiful piano opener "Quieter Is Louder," the emotive "Piece Of Mind" (again featuring Johnston's distinctive tones), melodic instrumental epic "Sacrifice" and a club mix of forthcoming single "All Over The World" (feat. Alex Vargas). The trio also debuted a fresh remix of the classic "Salva Mea" by legendary British dance act Faithless.
