STG Presents & Live Nation Welcomes Tame Impala to the Gorge Amphitheatre on Friday, August 6, 2021. Tickets purchased for the originally scheduled August 7, 2020 show will be honored for entry!
Tame Impala (Kevin Parker) released his fourth studio album, The Slow Rush, on February 14 (Interscope), and he has announced a full North American tour in support of the album. The tour kicks off with the previously announced date of March 9 at San Diego’s Pechanga Arena and concludes August 7 at The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA. The dates include two nights at The Forum in Los Angeles on March 10 (sold-out) and 11. Clairo and MGMT will support on previously announced March dates in California and Mexico, and Perfume Genius will support the full North American tour beginning in May.
To date, Parker has shared 3 tracks off The Slow Rush, including “Posthumous Forgiveness,” “It Might Be Time,” and “Borderline.” The Slow Rush was recorded between Los Angeles and Parker’s studio in his hometown of Fremantle, Australia. The twelve tracks were recorded, produced, and mixed by Parker. Fans can pre-order The Slow Rush at tameimpala.com and all major retailers, or with a ticket purchase for any of the North American tour dates. Digital pre-orders will receive the three album tracks instantly. The Slow Rush will also be printed in 4 heavyweight double disc vinyl formats - standard black, forest green (Limited Edition - all retailers), red/blue (indie retail exclusive), and splatter (Tame Impala webstore exclusive).
The Slow Rush is Parker’s deep dive into the oceans of time, conjuring the feeling of a lifetime in a lightning bolt, of major milestones whizzing by while you’re looking at your phone; it’s a paean to creation and destruction and the unending cycle of life. Parker told the New York Times earlier this year, “A lot of the songs carry this idea of time passing, of seeing your life flash before your eyes, being able to see clearly your life from this point onwards. I’m being swept by this notion of time passing. There’s something really intoxicating about it.” The album cover was created in collaboration with photographer Neil Krug and features a symbol of humanity all but swallowed whole by the surrounding environment, as though in the blink of an eye.
In 2019 Tame Impala headlined multiple major festivals including Coachella, Primavera, Lollapalooza, ACL and more. He debuted two new songs on Saturday Night Live and sold out arenas around the world, including two nights at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
