ICYMI: ODESZA AT THE FORUM
8/15/22

Last week, Grammy-nominated duo ODESZA hit L.A.’s The Kia Forum for back-to-back sold-out shows.

In support of their fourth album, The Last Goodbye—released via Foreign Family Collective/Ninja Tune—ODESZA, aka Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight, made their way to venue on 8/11 and 8/12 with special guests Tycho and Golden Features as part of their 36-date The Last Goodbye Tour.

Opening the show with their track “This Version of You,” ODESZA brought plenty of energy to their 26-song setlist, which included fan favorites like In Return’s “Bloom” and “Sun Models,” A Moment Apart’s “Higher Ground” as well as plenty of new tracks from The Last Goodbye. 

Boasting vibrant visuals, their dazzling drumline and proximate pyrotechnics, the show brought the album’s cinematic vibe to life, which fans can expect to see on the rest of their biggest headlining tour to date.
