Genre-defining, boundary-pushing electronic outfit Swedish House Mafia will complete a historic first next Summer when they headline a huge 9 hour ‘One Night Stand’ show in front of 65,000 people at the Milton Keynes National Bowl on Saturday July 14th 2012.
Highlights of this incredible event will be recorded by BBC Radio 1 for a future broadcast.
This announcement comes hot on the heels of confirmation that they will play another landmark ‘One Night Stand’ show at New York’s Madison Square Gardens on December 16th 2011.
This will see Swedish House Mafia - Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso - make history when they become the first dance act to have headlined both venues. These shows, once again, reaffirm their status as global superstars.
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 Gardens reads like a veritable who’s who of music dating from the late sixties to the present day.
The band are also set to release a live album (date to be announced) taken from the road this year.
The album will feature their 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).
The Swedes have already enjoyed phenomenal success to date.
Not only did their recent UK tour sell out in minutes which saw a second night added at London’s Alexandra Palace, but they sold over a million singles in 2010 alone, saw their album Until One reach Gold status, co-headlined Radio One’s Big Weekend and played major festivals including Creamfields, T in the Park and Oxegen.
Tickets for the National Bowl show (doors open at 2pm and close at 11pm) are £45.00 and go on general sale from Friday 30th September at 9am.
However from 9am on Wednesday 28th September until 9am on the 30th, SHM Originals (ticket holders to the very first Brixton shows by the band) will have exclusive access to tickets before anyone else.
These fans will be mailed on Saturday 24th September with a unique code as a thank you for their continued support.
On Thursday 29th September there will be a 24 hour fan presale through Swedish House Mafia’s Facebook.
