Tame Impala to Perform at Fiserv Forum on Saturday, May 30, 2020

MILWAUKEE (Dec. 9, 2019) – Tame Impala (Kevin Parker) will perform at Fiserv Forum on Saturday, May 30, 2020, in support of his fourth studio album, The Slow Rush, which will be released Feb. 14, 2020 by Interscope. The tour will feature special guest Perfume Genius. Tickets for the show at Milwaukee’s world-class venue will go on sale to the general public on Friday, Dec. 13 at 10 a.m., and can be purchased at FiservForum.com.

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets for select shows before the general public beginning Wednesday, Dec. 11 at 10 a.m. through Thursday, Dec. 12 at 10 p.m.

To date Parker has shared three tracks off The Slow Rush, including last week’s “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 12 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 four 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.

Tame Impala’s last album, Currents (Interscope) was released in 2015 earning him a second GRAMMY nomination, RIAA Gold-certification and word-wide critical acclaim. The New York Times labeled it a “a tour de force” and Pitchfork said, “nearly every proper song on ‘Currents’ is a revelatory statement of Parker’s range and increasing expertise as a producer, arranger, songwriter, and vocalist while maintaining the essence of Tame Impala.” NPR noted, “[Parker]advocates for constant reinvention… That commitment to evolution helps make Tame Impala an unlikely but worthy candidate for major stardom.”

He first toured the U.S. in 2010, playing small clubs for crowds of 200. A handful of trips to the U.S. later and thanks to the ravenous demand of fans for a transcendent live performance, Tame Impala has gone on to headline festivals and theaters around the world and released three full length albums: Innerspeaker, Lonerism and Currents. As a writer and producer Parker has collaborated with Travis Scott, SZA, Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Kanye West, Kali Uchis, Theophilus London, Miguel, A$AP Rocky and more.
