Yes, your dreams might finally be coming true. The internet has been abuzz with rumours that the band is bringing its acoustic show to India, and Paavo Siljamäki has made it look likely with just one tweet.
When Above & Beyond announced the release of their acoustic album in 2016, fans went crazy. It was even better news when they announced the Above & Beyond Acoustic tour, which is travelling to London, Chicago, Toronto, Boston, New York, Sydney and other cities, with dates until June. The venues are all beautiful theatres and other monuments. So when band member Paavo Siljamäki tweeted this, there was only one logical conclusion to draw.
Looking for beautiful old theatres in India… Any suggestions?

Post the tweet, he was bombarded with suggestions and an extremely enthusiastic response.
He also replied saying he wasn’t confirming anything:
@som_prem @Vh1Supersonic Hey we do not currently a solid plan to bring Acoustic to India. We’d love to but hold your horses…

Above & Beyond has announced and India tour late this month (buy your tickets here), and desi fans are definitely excited to see them again. But an acoustic show would be absolute perfection, and we’re definitely praying this happens! A Facebook page has also been made, petitioning for Above & Beyond Acoustic to come to local shores. So cross your fingers and hope for the best!
This is what the tour schedule looks like as of now:
