Starset’s music is known to take listeners on a celestial journey. Two of their past albums, Transmissions and Vessels felt as though the music took us through space and what we may encounter on the journey. The current album Horizons paints a more terrestrial picture. The songs have more to do with themes of an alien world.


On their past tours, Starset wore space suits on stage to fit the themes of traveling through the stars. When they took to the stage in Kansas City, they wore robes and attire that was fitting of a wasteland apocalypse, almost Mad Max-esque in a way.

The stage production was an experience. Lights were flashing from every direction, front, back, sides, above, and below. Combine the light show with the constant fog across the stage and the audience really got a feel like they were truly in a wasteland apocalyptic scene. 

Starset played through several of their hits, such as The Breach, Carnivore, Let It Die, Earthrise, Satellite, Ricochet, and My Demons.
