The last time we spoke to Kevin Parker of Tame Impala, it was December 2020. Parker was at home in Perth, locked down and going through boxes of old equipment and instruments, appreciating the nostalgia. Now, as the world adjusts to a new norm, Tame Impala is back touring the world and putting on one of the best shows we have experienced. The Rushium Tour - the headlining tour that was cancelled at the start of 2020 - has taken off again, landing last week at the Hollywood Bowl. A venue that, as Parker said on stage, is “iconic. Just gotta say it.” With the brilliant Perfume Genius opening, the Bowl was buzzing. We were told by an on screen 'doctor' to take our 'Rushium', the image and sound distorted, and the Tame Impala trip began.

A Tame Impala show is an adrenaline-inducing, thrilling, dizzying experience. Brilliant flashes of the warmest pinks, red hot lasers fanning the Hollywood sky, rushes of rainbows and hypnotic visuals only enhance the sounds of Tame Impala. It is exactly as Parker told us in Issue 17 of 10 Men Australia “Visuals are so important to me… With a live show, you just want to blow people’s minds and put the most psychedelic shit up there.” A total multimedia sensory experience, where at the sold out Bowl, everyone wasup and dancing, singing, laughing and feeling damn good. One does feel invincible after a Tame Impala concert.

The Slow Rush Tour comes to Australia in 2022. Buy tickets here.
