The trio of Joe Newman, Gus Unger-Hamilton, and Thom Green — better known as alt-J — are getting set to deliver a unique concert to fans at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, NY on June 15th promising the only “immersive sound” show on the continent.
The show is set to feature a surround speaker system enveloping the entire audience, positioning sound effects mixed into a variety of the band’s material.
Pre-sale begins Tuesday, January 30th at 10AM EST.
The band recently won the prestigious ‘Knights Of Illumination’ award for lighting production for their show at London’s O2 arena, and that same stage production will also be featured at this show.
The entire venue will be general admission for this special event, including floor and bowl, ensuring fans will be able to enjoy the sights and sounds from every angle.
Additionally, the band has announced that Kamasi Washington will be appearing as a special guest on the bill.
alt-J’s third album Relaxer was released in June of 2017.
