ODESZA kicks off first live shows in 3 years
ODESZA have returned with both new music and a massive summer tour, marking a return to the stage for the first time in 3 years. While the duo’s most recent album, The Last Goodbye, has been highly praised by critics and fans alike, the duo of Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight began their latest tour with a massive three night homecoming at Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena.
Beginning what would be their largest headline tour to date, ODESZA made sure to put on a spectacle for fans who have been awaiting the groups return. After special guests Sylan Esso and ford. got things started, ODESZA stepped up the stage with a massive production to match the energy and emotion of the music. The set took listeners through all of the groups output, with a healthy amount of tracks from the latest album, as well as plenty from earlier albums In Return and A Moment Apart. Through their own musicianship as well as occasional feature of additional percussionists, the show ensured to feel like a truly live atmosphere.
Starting at Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena, the world’s first certified net zero arena, also held a larger meaning and purpose for the tour. An important aspect of this latest outing for ODESZA is to make the trek not only carbon neutral, but hopefully carbon negative. In hopes of achieving this goal, the group has partnered with the environmental non-profit group REVERB, which will be present at each stop of the tour to help educate concert goers about the positive impact they can have on make smart climate changes. A unique feature will be the ODESZA+REVERB Eco Village which will be set up at each stop and offer #RockNRefill water stations as well as other climate focused initiatives and more. The tour will continue throughout north America and run until October 1st. While many dates are already sold out, some still have tickets available so check out the full routing here and get your tickets now!
