SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA Announce Shows At Madison Square Garden & Milton Keynes Bowl


Make History & Announce ‘One Night Stand’ Shows at
Madison Square Garden on 16th December 2011
& Milton Keynes National Bowl on 14th July 2012

Also Announce Details of a Live Album!

Genre-defining, boundary-pushing electronic outfit Swedish House Mafia will complete a historic first next Summer when they headline a gargantuan ‘One Night Stand’ show in front of 65,000 people at the Milton Keynes National Bowl on 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 Garden 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 Garden 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 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).

The announcement finally confirms what Swedish House Mafia’s army of fans have spent the last few weeks trying to work out!  The band launched a special website in August after their storming headline set at Creamfields.  The specially designed site included a code which fans had to try and crack which would have informed them on what was to come!  And though they spent weeks exchanging possibilities, and they came very close, they didn’t quite come close enough!

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 festival including Creamfields, T in the Park and Oxegen. Internationally, their infamous Masquerade Motel events sold out in Miami, Las Vegas and Ibiza where they enjoyed a sixteen week residency.

Tickets for the National Bowl show (doors open at 2pm and closes at 11pm) are £45.00 and go on general sale from Friday 30th September at 9am.  They’ll be available from: / 0844 811 0051 / 0844 811 0051 / 0844 826 2826
