- “The most scintillating, inspiring collective moments of my life have been outdoors in the summer exploding with music. Those sensations travel from when I was a little kid and rock music was brand new to our last Summer Gods tour, when everything is magically new again. I seek to create that exact blissed-out state of aliveness on tour this summer.”
