Australian prog Eurovision hopes Voyager have announced a European and UK tour for October, which includes headline dates at Euroblast Festival and London’s Dome and Manchester’s Club Academy. You can see the live dates below – tickets go on sale Friday May 12.
The band also return to their native Australia for live dates in June, and to celebrate the band’s Eurovision endeavours, the Perth Symphony Orchestra’s string quartet INNEKA have recorded their unique version of the band’s current Eurovision entry Promise, filmed at Perth’s Optus Stadium, which you can watch below.
“We’re truly speechless after seeing this incredible show of support from the Perth Symphony Orchestra and our beautiful State,” the band say. “This epic string version of our song Promise moved us to tears and we cannot be prouder to be ambassadors for Australia, Aussie music and particularly our incredible WA music scene!”
Voyager take part in the second Eurovision semi-final, which takes place tomorrow evening, starting on BBC TV at 8pm – 10.10pm on BBC One and iPlayer for UK residents. If you’re not following the event, but still want to support the first ever prog band to feature at Eurovision, for the first time ever, only viewers watching at home will vote bands through from the semi-finals.
