Alessandro Lindblad – more commonly known as Alesso – was one of the essential voices that helped bring progressive house to mainstream pop music in the early 2010s. His earliest pop hits took both the U.S. and U.K charts by storm. Collaborations with Sebastian Ingrosso – “Lose My Mind” – and Calvin Harris – “Under Control” put him on everyone’s radar.
When he released his first U.S. Top 40 hit – “Heroes (We Could Be)” – with Swedish pop star Tove Lo, he became a summer festival staple.
In 2104, the artist landed a record deal with Def Jam Records, and in 2015 he issued his debut album Forever. The album includes the singles “Tear the Roof Up,” “Cool,” and “Heroes (We Could Be)”.
His latest international hit was a collaboration with actress Hailee Steinfeld and the country duo Florida Georgia Line called “Let Me Go.”
Alesso plays The Metropolitan on Friday, July 30th. Tickets start at $65 and doors open at 9 PM.
