Norwegian dance-pop superstars KEiiNO have confirmed they will tour Australia, for the very first time later in 2019.
KEiiNO dominated the global voting for the massive Eurovision Song Contest in May 2019. Their song Spirit In The Sky won the global audience vote and topped the voting in eight countries including Australia. Since then Spirit in the Sky has been streamed over 60 million times (Spotify, YouTube & Apple Music combined). There is no doubt that the Norwegian group’s mix of dancepop, nordic folk and Sámi joik, has reached a broad audience – since Eurovision they have been playing very big festivals in Europe and in Great Britain.
“We are tremendously excited to be coming to Australia” said KEiiNO’s Tom Hugo. “We got incredible support from Australia at Eurovision and their media we met in Tel Aviv were so welcoming and supportive. When we won the Australian vote we made it a priority to come get there and we can’t wait until November.”
Since Eurovision KEiiNO have released a single Praying and are excited to announce that a new single in the pop banger style of Spirit in the Sky will be released in October prior to their tour. While in the country KEiiNO will be working with local trailblazers Electric Fields in a world first collaboration between Australian and Norwegian indigenous music. This is part of KEiiNO’s plan to unite the world of music by collaborating with indigenous musicians wherever their road takes them. An important element of KEiiNO’s music is the “joik”, a traditional form of song in Sámi music performed by the Sámi people of the Nordic countries.
The band’s joyous and uplifting live show also includes their Europop re-make of Lady Gaga’s Shallow and songs from the successful solo careers of the three members Tom Hugo, Alexandra Rotan and Fred Buljo. The trio’s support of Pride events in Europe has made them icons in the gay community and their crowd-pleasing live shows create a party atmosphere that transcends national borders.
