Watch the first night of Porter Robinson and Madeon’s huge ‘Shelter’ tour

Best buds Porter Robinson and Madeon have just begun their joint tour across North America.

The Shelter Live tour, which runs until December 2, sees the pair sharing the stage in a special “back-to-back live show”. And now you can check out footage from the tour opener in Atlanta on Thursday night, featuring live vocals, heaps of energy and some pretty epic visuals. It was shot in its entirety by one pretty committed fan. Watch below.

The Shelter tour is the offshoot of the pair’s collaborative track of the same name. The pop-tinged anthem dropped via social media in mid-August. Listen here.

Madeon and Porter first got to know each other as beginners on music production forums, and the friendship has developed from there. Following the release of their solo albums – Porter’s Worlds in 2014, and Madeon’s Adventure the following year – they decided to team up.

As Madeon elaborated in a press release: “Both Porter and I started working with people in-person when we started making our respective albums and appreciated how much more collaborative you can get. Our intent was to make music that would reflect our friendship.”
