Tour life is often a musician’s fantasy: bright stage lights, the energy of screaming fans, and the thrill of waking up in a new city every day. For Dominic Fike, that fantasy is a reality.

The actor and musician’s career has had an explosive trajectory since the release of his debut EP Don’t Forget About Me, Demos in 2018. Fike has since tapped into several creative realms with an appearance on HBO’s Euphoria and being featured in fashion campaigns for Calvin Klein and Saint Laurent. Fast forward to this past July, when he released his sophomore studio album Sunburn. In an Instagram post announcing the launch, he writes, “This is a piece of time we recorded and dressed up pretty as we could. If you find a song on here that you needed today then I did my small stupid little job.” A week following the release, Fike set off on his “Don’t Stare At The Sun” world tour, hitting 37 cities across the US, Canada, and Europe. Luckily for us, Fike took GEN V along for the ride, sharing a glimpse into some of the stops he made along his travels.
