Air announces US live date

After the sold-out tour last March that brought Air back to North America after more than three years, the French electronic-pop duo returns with an exclusive live date in the States this October. Scheduled for October 23 at LA’s Shrine Auditorium, the show will consist of opening acts by Quadron and Juliette Commagere.

With albums such as Moon Safari and the latest, Love 2, Air holds 5.5 million worldwide record sales to date. Its app for iPhone, titled “Love by Air” (developed with London-based music tech company RjDj), spent several weeks in the iTunes Top 20 Music Apps chart.

The application allows users to mix their own versions of the band’s music by choosing from five different “soundscapes,” then transforming them by sampling and processing ambient sounds, their own voice, and more into Air’s hits. Also available through the app are personal message and performance recordings to make sharing of these creations possible.
