Swedish House Mafia Announce Special Shows
They will headline New York City's famed Madison Square Garden on Friday, Dec. 16th, 2011 and the UK's legendary 65,000 capacity Milton Keynes National Bowl on July 14th, 2012.
These two milestone shows will see Swedish House Mafia - Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso - make history by becoming the first dance act to have headlined both venues.
Swedish House Mafia will join an enviable list of music legends who have headlined the National Bowl including Oasis, Green Day, Metallica, Eminem and Foo Fighters. The list of artists who have played Madison Square Garden reads like a veritable who's who of music dating from the late sixties to the present day. Considered 'The World's Most Famous Arena', the 130 year old arena has hosted sold out shows by the world's biggest artists including Lady Gaga, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Billy Joel, The Rolling Stones, The Who, U2, Jay-Z, Metallica, Beyoncé, Eric Clapton, Bon Jovi, Prince, Taylor Swift, The Killers, Green Day, Britney Spears, Kings of Leon, the Dave Matthews Band and many more.
The band are also set to release a live album 'One Night Stand' (date tbc) taken from the road this year. The album will feature their much sought-after, previously unavailable Coldplay Vs Swedish House Mafia 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' plus "Antidote", their new collaboration with Knife Party (Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen from Pendulum).
