Tame Impala will donate $300,000 to the Australian bushfire relief from upcoming tour
As the devastation left behind after the intense Australian bushfires continues to mount up, Kevin Parker and Tame Impala will be donating $300,000 (AUD) to the bushfire relief fund from the 2020 tour.
It comes as wave after wave of indie artists continue to contribute to the relief fund. From Mac DeMarco to Elton John to King Gizz and back to Nick Cave, music is doing what it can.
Now, Tame Impala have joined that fight by pledging to donate $300,000 following the Australian and New Zealand tour in 2020. Kevin Parker told Triple J: “In the past few weeks I’ve been devastated to see what’s been happening with the fires at home and we want to do our bit to help, so we’re going to be donating $300,000 to bushfire relief charities.”
That tour will see Tame Impala return to Australia and New Zealand for a gigantic arena tour. Starting things off on April 16th at Spark Arena in Auckland, New Zealand before arriving at Brisbane Entertainment Centre on April 18th. The tour will end on April 28th at Perth’s RAC Arena.
