The Lumineers announce ‘climate-positive’ world tour
The Lumineers are partnering with environmental non-profit Reverb to embark on another ‘climate-positive’ tour.
The band’s 60-date Brightside World Tour is due to kick off at the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham, UK, on 24 February and conclude at Sound on Sound music festival in Bridgeport in Connecticut, US, on 25 September.
Once again, the American folk-rock band is committing to a comprehensive climate action programme via REVERB’s Music Climate Revolution campaign, with aims to reduce their environmental footprint whilst on the road.
The tour will also see the band commit to eliminating more greenhouse gas pollutions than they emit by supporting projects that directly eliminate greenhouse gases.
Founded in 2004, Reverb helps to limit the carbon footprint of tours and educate those within the live touring industry on their consumption habits so that they can make a difference.
