This tour began on September 28, 2022 in San Diego, California, and played in major cities including Boston, Philadelphia, and Orlando.

Formed in 2006 Brisbane, Australia based band Eliza and The Delusionals, began the show with “Give You Everything” which sparked immediate interest from the crowd. Vocalist, Eliza Klatt, had a very positive and bubbly demeanor as she performed her heart out. During their 45 minute set, Eliza spoke to the crowd about how grateful she was to be on tour with her favorite band, Silversun Pickups, and how much she loved and appreciated them. Eliza and The Delusionals released their first studio album in May 2022 titled “Now and Then” which was nominated for Australian Album of the Year, and won Rock Song of the Year at Queensland Music Awards in 2020 for their hit “Just Exist.” They played a total of nine songs including “YOU,” “Halloween,” and “Save Me” although some were not very familiar with the band, they made numerous fans that night as the crowd began chanting their name. Closing out the night with their most popular song “Just Exist” Silversun Pickups joined the stage and played along side Eliza and The Delusionals which sent the crowd into a frenzy. Once the final note was played hugs were exchanged amongst the band members and the crowd began to stir for what was next to come, Silversun Pickups.
