New York City Bids Farewell to Swedish House Mafia With Five Final Shows
Swedish House Mafia are saying goodbye to the Big Apple in a big way. The trio are performing five final shows in New York City, and they’re doing one of them for a great cause.
Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso are hosting a “Black Tie Rave” tonight (Feb. 28) at Hammerstein Ballroom to benefit. The event will benefit the New Jersey Relief Fund, Mayor’s Fund To Advance NYC and Save the Children USA. The city is celebrating the charitable venture — the Empire State Building’s lights will be in Sweden’s official colors, blue and yellow, to commemorate the event.
The show precedes the band’s final New York City concerts. They will perform at Madison Square Garden this Friday (March 1), followed by three concerts at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on March 2, 3 and 4.
For their concerts at the Barclays Center, The New York Post reports that a special VIP section will be created just for the group during their swan songs. The masterminds behind the Provocateur nightclub designed a specialty suite in Jay-Z’s pet arena just for the trio called Room 101.
Though these are the EDM favorites’ final New York City shows, they aren’t the final shows for Swedish House Mafia altogether. That will go down at the Ultra Music Festival, where they’re sure to go out with a bang.
