“It’s Finally Happening” The Tallest Man on Earth

The Tallest Man on Earth, has announced a run European and North American dates. Kristian Matsson AKA: The Tallest Man on Earth will tour across Sweden and play Finland, and then head to the US this fall. The October run kicks off with a gig at Red Rocks Amphitheatre alongside Watchhouse (f.k.a. Mandolin Orange) and Bonny Light Horseman, before Matsson goes on to headline a run of special, intimate gigs that will include opener Madi Diaz.

Since the start of the pandemic, Matsson has been active in connecting with listeners across the globe; he performed frequent livestreams for fans, playing through covers and requests, as well as his acclaimed and beloved albums including The Wild Hunt, Dark Bird is Home, and his most recent release, I Love You. It’s a Fever Dream, among others. Matsson also released the inventive full-length performance film, The Little Red Barn Show, created with friend and filmmaker Rolf Nylinder. He is thrilled to finally be able to re-connect with listeners in real life.

In recent years Matsson has undertaken single oriented projects that incorporate writing, producing and self-releasing songs and videos in regular intervals, often with purposefully intense deadlines. He’s described finding inspiration in the entire process, and in particular in the satisfaction of making something and having it out quickly. For listeners and viewers the fascination has been in watching an artist work through his life, in problems and celebrations large and small, putting his thoughts out into the world while he’s still processing them himself and watching them evolve over time.
