Tame Impala’s 2020 Tour Will Be As Climate-Focused As Possible – While Still, Y’Know, Touring

Perth lads Tame Impala have announced that their world tour for The Slow Rush will see them take steps to be more environmentally-friendly and sustainable, in the face of the ongoing climate crisis.

Considering touring internationally makes an artist’s carbon footprint bloody massive, Kevin Parker and the gang have teamed up with a couple of organisations like Reverb to help reduce their impact on the environment.

The US tour, which kicked off on March 10 in San Diego and hits Los Angeles tonight, will have sweet custom reusable water bottles available for a donation – which can be refilled at the water stations the band’s setting up at every gig.

Behind the stage, Tame Impala are planning to reduce their own plastic waste with reusable bottles and mugs for the whole band and crew, full recycling backstage and on the tour buses, everything’s being cleaned with environmentally-friendly products, leftovers from catering and hotel toiletries will be donated to local shelters, and donating funds to various projects around the planet that directly eliminate greenhouse gases.

PEDESTRIAN.TV has reached out to Tame Impala to see if they’ll be bringing the same ethos and initiatives to their Australian tour dates in April, and fingers crossed we do because I want one of these bottles so bad thank you.
