He is currently on an international headline tour drumming for Clairo, having already played major cities in Asia, Europe, Australia and South America, as well as the Lollapalooza, Coachella, and Bonnaroo Festivals. ‘Having toured with Dua Lipa last summer, Clairo just finished Khalid’s U.S. stadium/arena “Free Spirit Tour” for the summer of 2019.
