[TOUR RECAP] Griz’s ‘Good Will Prevail’ Tour Gave America Hope When We Needed It Most
Think of the most beautiful show you’ve ever been to. Do you remember the look on everyone’s faces? Can you still picture the looks of awe, the eyes full of bliss? Remember that moment that gave your entire body chills, and all you could do was smile?
What made it beautiful for you? Was it the music itself, the people you were surrounded by, or something else?
They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but there are some pieces of life scattered throughout our experiences that we can’t deny straight up radiate those happy, feel good vibes and make them beautiful. These moments can be found in times of laughter, love, in sounds, in art, in people. Beauty can be found everywhere if you really look for it, but how do you create the moment for thousands of people to experience, both together and in their own ways?
Artists among every genre alike seek to create those beautiful experiences that leave you feeling as if you’ve just spent those moments with a family of thousands. Through both their sounds and their live performances, they can create an atmosphere of togetherness, where everyone can experience the beauty of it all while both expressing themselves as individuals and gettin’ down with their friends. And then, there are those artists that go above and beyond to make it feel like you’re at a party surrounded by best friends you’ve never met. Any artists come to mind?
Griz’ Good Will Prevail Tour has finally come to a glorious end. Beginning in October in Salt Lake City and ending in San Francisco almost two months later, team Griz has traveled the country with funkadelic style and delivered a tour dedicated to spreading the good, the positive, and the love in the world to all.
The Good Will Prevail tour was a little bit different than Griz’ other tours. This tour was special because it was held during a time that the country needs to come together in love, patience, and understanding the most. Griz, Muzzy Bearr, supporting artists Haywyre, Brasstracks, and the All Good Records team made it their mission to spread as much peace and love to the hearts they encountered as they could. Along with this, they gave us a taste of the best production we’ve seen during a Griz tour yet. If you attended one of the shows on the tour, take the feelings that those moments gave you and spread that love to everyone you meet.
If you didn’t get a chance to check out a show on this tour, it’s all good…
We decided to gather some of the highlights of the Good Will Prevail Tour both from the videos shared by Griz and from the fans themselves to show you what we’re talking about.
