Following our April run with the Foo Fighters, The Struts did a month of headlining shows across the US (supported by The Glorious Sons and Spirit Animal). There’s a lot more photos to come from my summer adventures with these guys! Check back for highlights from our residency at The Roxy in West Hollywood, more Foo Fighters shows, and Part 2 of the summer headline shows.

I’ve spent much of my 2018 with The Struts, for what has turned into quite an amazing year and experience. This summer, the guys continued their run supporting the legendary Foo Fighters.

During the Foo’s set, Luke came on stage to cover “Under Pressure” with Taylor Hawkins, while Dave Grohl hopped on the drums. Almost every night following that performance, Dave blew us away with generous compliments about The Struts proclaimed to thousands of people every night. Check out my tour recap video below for an interview with Luke, and a peek into that experience.

This post covers the weeks we spent with them in April in the Southern US, before starting a month-long tour of our own headliners (stay tuned for those photos in the next post).

This summer on the Monolith Tour, I also had the pleasure of working with Joywave. Any amount of time with them is not enough. Amazing people, and they may or may not play more than one song in their set. Because they do whatever the hell they want.

I never know what to expect going into each tour, and I certainly can never guess which ones will be the most amazing and meaningful. The live set is always at the center of everything, but what you can never account for is the incredible and specific chemistry that each bill of bands produces backstage and on the road. It’s the memories that only those on the tour get to take away. With MisterWives we had the pleasure of supporting 30 Seconds To Mars along with Joywave and Walk The Moon, so there were quite a few new and long-time friends on this tour for me!

Here are just some of my favorite images of MisterWives on the Monolith Tour this summer. At the end of this post are some of my images of WTM and 30STM. And check back soon for a full Joywave post!

A R I Z O N A was a new (to me) band as of this year, and their insanely infectious music landed them in my Spotify #2017Wrapped playlist over and over again. (If you haven’t made yours yet- do it!!) A few posts ago, I share photos from my time on the rode with GLADES this year. That tour was in support of A R I Z O N A, and I was brought on to photograph them as well. So here are some of my favorite images from their incredible shows along with some BTS moments including a surprise visit/performance feature from Kiiara at The Troubadour in LA!

This year I’ve gotta to work with a few new (to me) bands for the first time! I rode along with GLADES supporting the ARIZONA 2017 Summer headline tour. They’re a three-piece from Australia and we had absolutely the best time. It was their first time touring across the US, so we did some fun sight-seeing in places like Washington DC and San Fransisco! Along with being infinitely talented, they are hilarious! Can’t wait to see them in the US more soon!
