Today, 2x GRAMMY Award winner and multi-platinum-selling artist Lauren Daigle announced her continued partnership with KultureCity to create and renovate seventeen “sensory rooms” at venue stops on her The Kaleidoscope Tour, including fifteen new rooms. Specially designed by medical professionals, the renovated or refurbished spaces provide dedicated environments for individuals needing a quieter and more secure environment from which to enjoy concert (and sporting) events.
The rooms are scheduled to be completed by the time Daigle’s The Kaleidoscope Tour kicks off on September 6. Each sensory room will be outfitted with bean bags from Yogibo, visual light panels by Nanoleaf, activity panels, Sparkle Interactive Light by NunoErin, bubble walls, and a custom tactile artwork created by an autistic artist. In addition, sensory bags will be available at all tour stops for those who might need them. More information can be found here.
“The amazing thing about playing live is that feeling I get when I’m looking out from the stage seeing people connect to the music – and to each other,” shares Daigle. “These sensory rooms we’re creating with KultureCity are all about giving everyone that experience. For me, that’s what touring is all about.”
Daigle’s partnership with KultureCity began in 2021 when together they created The Lauren Daigle Sensory Room at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. The room was sponsored by Daigle’s own The Price Fund, as are all of the rooms being created for this effort. Since 2019, KultureCity has created over 1,900 sensory-inclusive venues in seven countries and has been recognized nationwide for using its resources to revolutionize and effect change in the community for those with sensory needs, not just those with autism.

“Music is something that we associate with, and to know that Lauren and her team are going the extra mile to ensure that everyone, no matter their ability, is included at a concert is truly amazing,” says Uma Srivastava, Executive Director, KultureCity. “We’re honored to partner with Lauren to provide a truly inclusive experience for all fans and guests!”
The Kaleidoscope Tour, which kicks off on September 6 in Memphis, includes stops in LA, Newark, Boston, Atlanta, Seattle, and Baton Rouge. Before its conclusion in the U.S., the tour will have seen 30 stops before heading overseas. Brandon Lake, Crowder, Josh Garrels, and Victory Boyd will appear on select dates. Tickets for The Kaleidoscope Tour are now here.
In addition, on September 8, Daigle will release the remainder of her self-titled album via Atlantic Records in partnership with Centricity Music. Led by GRAMMY-winning producer Mike Elizondo (Twenty One Pilots, Mary J. Blige, Fiona Apple, Carrie Underwood), Lauren Daigle features co-writes with award-winning songwriters, including Natalie Hemby, Amy Wadge, Shane McAnally, Jason Ingram, Lori McKenna, and Jon Greene. The album marks a new creative chapter for the Louisiana-born artist.
