The Lumineers BRIGHTSIDE World Tour 2022 has kicked off with their North American dates.
The shows began May 18 at Jacksonville, FL’s Daily’s Place and then continue until early September. Special guests throughout the tour will include Caamp (May 18-June 17, September 3), Gregory Alan Isakov (July 12-August 16), Daniel Rodriguez (July 12-August 16), and James Bay (August 17-September 6). Additional dates will be announced.
After successfully creating the world’s first major climate positive tour in 2020, The Lumineers along with their management Activist Artists Management are proud to continue their partnership with environmental non-profit REVERB.org, on this year’s tour. The band has committed to a comprehensive climate action program via REVERB’s Music Climate Revolution campaign, which, in addition to reducing the tour’s environmental footprint and engaging fans to take action at the shows, will support projects that directly and measurably eliminate greenhouse gases while benefitting diverse global communities. These efforts will make the tour climate positive; eliminating significantly more greenhouse gas pollution than the tour emits including fan travel to and from shows.
The BRIGHTSIDE World Tour celebrates the recent arrival of the Lumineers’ eagerly anticipated new album, BRIGHTSIDE, available now via Dualtone in the U.S. & Canada and Decca Records for the rest of the world. The 2x GRAMMY® Award-nominated band’s fourth studio album, BRIGHTSIDE includes such new favourites as “A.M. RADIO,” “BIG SHOT,” “WHERE WE ARE,”and the chart-topping first single and title track, “BRIGHTSIDE”.
“BRIGHTSIDE” recently made history by ascending to #1 on Billboard’s “Alternative National Airplay” and “Adult Alternative Airplay” charts – the band’s sixth time atop the latter ranking in less than 10 years. The Lumineers now boast the most #1 singles among all acts on that chart in the span since achieving their first AAA chart-topper in 2012.
Produced by longtime collaborator Simone Felice and produced, mixed, and engineered by David Baron over two sessions in winter and spring 2021 at Baron’s Sun Mountain Studios in bucolic Boiceville, NY, BRIGHTSIDE marks The Lumineers’ first new music in more than two years. The nine-song collection sees The Lumineers’ co-founders/co-songwriters Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites performing virtually all of the eclectic, effervescent instrumentation, with Baron on a wide variety of keyboards and backing vocals and more by Simone Felice, touring members Byron Isaacs and Lauren Jacobson, famed backing singer Cindy Mizelle (Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews Band), The Felice Brothers’ James Felice, and acclaimed singer-songwriter Diana DeMuth.
The Lumineers’ most joyous and spontaneous piece of work thus far, BRIGHTSIDE has been met by immediate critical applause around the world.
