Brian and Roger Eno staged their first ever live performance together at the Acropolis in Athens in August 2021. This truly unique event took place in front of a sell-out crowd as part of the Athens Epidaurus Festival, and is one of the very rare occasions that Brian Eno has performed live in front of an audience.

In 2020 the duo released their first full collaboration album, Mixing Colours, which proved to be a balm for many during the first Covid lockdown. In 2022, Brian released FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE, his first album of songs since 2005, and Roger released his Deutsche Grammophon solo debut, The Turning Year. This concert includes music from all three albums, as well as rare outings for Brian Eno classics from Another Green World and Before and After Science.

"I don’t perform live very often, but I couldn’t miss the chance to perform in what may be the world’s oldest theatre, located at the birthplace of Western Civilisation. I’m grateful to Roger, Cecily, Leo and Peter who made this rare appearance memorable for me, and to the great film-maker Tilo Krause who managed to make a beautiful documentation of the whole event.” - Brian Eno

"The performers had quite a different view to the members of the audience - they saw Brian’s stunning visuals on the ancient walls of Odeon of Herodes Atticus, whilst we saw, above our heads, the illuminated Parthenon as though floating in the blackness of night. It was an exceptional honour to perform in such a place. This film, I think, captures the moment accurately and sensitively. But it is more than a mere momento or a document - it is a work of beauty in itself that can now be shared worldwide.” - Roger Eno
