The Lumineers joined the sold-out lineup for iHeartRadio’s ALTer EGO 2020 presented by Capital One and hit the stage at The Forum in Los Angeles on Saturday, January 18.
Their performance marked their first stop ahead of their III world tour, which will make 30 stops from North Carolina to Europe.
The Denver-based band decided to divide their third studio album, III, into three chapters, telling the story of a family across three generations and how addiction touched those lives with tracks like “Gloria” and “Jimmy Sparks.”

"It's the family secret and it's a taboo," lead vocalist Wes Schultz told NPR following the album’s release. "With drug addiction or alcoholism it really affects the individual and then it has a sort of fallout effect — similar to the effects of a radiation bomb — over time and over years and years, it continually tends to affect people's loved ones," drummer Jeremiah Fraites added at the time.
