Air Announce Exclusive LA Show
Tue, 27 Jul 2010 12:21:01
Following their sold-out North American tour last March to celebrate the release of their fifth studio album Love 2, Air are proud to announce an exclusive, one-off live date this Fall. The French electronic pop duo (Nicolas Godin and JB Dunckel) will play Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium on Saturday, October 23, 2010.
The March 2010 shows were the band's first North American live dates in over three years. For the first time on these dates, the band performed their live show as an intimate three-piece with Godin and Dunckel taking on full instrumental and vocal duties. They've been gone for a while, but they are back…for now.
Also in March, Air teamed up with London-based music technology company RjDj to create an innovative App, "Love by AIR" for the iPhone, which allows fans to experience Air's music in a unique, immersive way. Fans choose from five different "soundscapes" and then use the App's features to transform the musical experience in real-time by sampling and processing ambient sounds, the fan's own voice and more into Air's own music. Fans can also record their own messages or performances with the application, allowing them to share their own unique productions of Air's music with their friends, and with the world. Upon release the App spent several weeks in the iTunes Top 20 Music Apps chart.
AIR'S NORTH AMEICAN/MEXICAN TOUR DATES:
