Tame Impala is back on the road with their hotly-anticipated, rescheduled Rushium Trials tour for their 2020 album The Slow Rush.

Checking in at their first stop at Chicago’s United Center, Tame Impala set the crowd ablaze with a performance their Travis Scott collaboration, “Skeletons,” which landed on Scott’s historic 2018 album Astroworld. Tame Impala’s frontman Kevin Parker, who produced the track, previously performed the song live with Scott while appearing on Saturday Night Live that same year.

The show marked the first time that the band had reunited on-stage since their last performance in March 2020, before their North American tour was postponed due to the pandemic. Tame Impala had just released their fourth studio effort, The Slow Rush, a month prior to their tour’s cancellation.

In an interview with Billboard in 2018, Parker discussed the conception of “Skeletons,” explaining, “[Scott’s] manager got in touch and said he was a big fan [and suggested we] meet up if I was ever in LA, so I went to a few sessions with him. We hung out and played some stuff, and he really liked what ended up being ‘Skeletons.’ That definitely got the biggest reaction out of him. I could tell he liked it. I remember going through this stuff to play to Travis, and just thought, ‘Oh, this is actually really up his alley.’”

“What’s cool about people like Travis is that they’re just getting a bunch of people in the room and seeing what happens,” Parker said of working with the rapper. “For a lot of it, I was just a team player. At some points, there were 10, 20 people in the room. You could just be there and hang out and not do anything for like an hour. And then something perks your ears up, and you can be like, ‘Oh yeah yeah, plug me in, I’ve got an idea.’ We’d go for hours, until three in the morning.”
