The Lumineers announced on February 8 the North American dates of the Brightside World Tour 2022. The shows begin May 18 and continue through early September, including local performances at PNC Bank Arts Center on May 28 and Forest Hills Stadium on June 17. Caamp will be the support act at all the local shows. After successfully creating the world’s first major climate positive tour in 2020, The Lumineers will continue a 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.
