Tame Impala promise eco-friendly initiatives on The Slow Rush Tour
Kevin Parker’s psychedelic-pop troupe, Tame Impala, just kicked off their worldwide arena run, The Slow Rush Tour, that covers North America and Australia through the spring and summer. In addition to providing a world-class rock show, the Aussie band is using their platform to fight the growing issue of environmental waste and promoting a variety of eco-friendly initiatives.
Teaming up with REVERB—a Maine-based nonprofit who is also on the road with Billie Eilish, Tame Impala shows will have an “Eco-Village” where fans find out more about their green partner and even have a free water filling station. The village will also have custom, reusable Nalgene bottles and eco-friendly guitar picks for fans to gra.
In addition to the Eco Village, the band looks to reduce their environmental footprint on this tour with green actions such as neutralizing carbon emissions, collecting unused toiletries, recycling backstage/on the tour bus, and and more. With growing public health and global environmental concerns both at all time highs, Parker and company will hopefully lead an industry-wide shift towards greener event production practices.
