"Gud Vibrations is about positive energy/vibrations/frequencies so we wanted to make a stage that reflected those ideas,” the guys say in a joint email statement. “Our first concept was a nuclear silo, but we wanted a more easily recognizable design. Then we came up with the idea of an atom, looked up a few 3D renders, and saw the rings. Once we decided on the final design, we were so excited we found something that had not been done before. Our entire goal with this tour was to create something no one has ever seen, and the Atom made this dream a reality."
Only 15 dates can be revealed at this time, due mostly to contractual obligations to festivals, but plenty more should be revealed soon. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, July 20, at 3 p.m. ET.
