The news comes just a month after the Perth band’s eight album made impact.
Just over a month after releasing their stellar eighth album, Fearless In Love, Voyager have announced a national headline tour in support of it.
They’ll start off in their hometown of Boorloo/Perth, playing to some 2,000 fans at Metro City on Saturday February 3. The following Thursday (February 8) will see them play 170 Russell in Naarm/Melbourne, and then Meanjin/Brisbane’s Princess Theatre the night after that (February 9). After a short break, Voyager will wrap the tour up with back-to-back shows in Ngambri/Canberra (playing The Basement on Thursday February 22), Eora/Sydney (Manning Bar on Friday February 23) and Kaurna/Adelaide (Unibar on Saturday February 24).
Tickets for all six of the shows go on sale at 10am local time this Wednesday (August 23) following a Live Nation presale tomorrow (August 22). See here for more info on both sales.
Reviewing their last show in Brisbane for The Music, Carley Hall praised Voyager for living up to the recent swathe of hype brought on by the band’s appearance at Eurovision: “If there were ever any suspicions about whether this band’s bark was bigger than its bite,” she wrote, “they’re quickly quashed. Voyager has spent half its lifetime as a band with members coming and going around its mainstay Estrin; the Voyager that we see now on stage have had 10-plus years of playing together – and you can hear and see it in action.”
Fearless In Love arrived on July 14 via Season Of Mist, debuting at #3 on the ARIA Top 50 Albums Chart and earning critical acclaim. In our 4.5-star review, Rod Whitfield called it “something very special”, noting: “Fearless In Love is one of the albums of the year, no question (it is very likely to be in this scribe’s top three at least), and should go down as an all-time Aussie classic.”

In a recent interview with The Music, Voyager drummer Ashley Doodkorte said the release of Fearless In Love offered the band a sense of “massive catharsis”. He explained: “We've had this album under our belts for over a year now, and it's one we're really excited about and proud of. To finally have it out there, especially after the massive opportunity that was Eurovision, is ridiculously exciting. I think it's definitely the right album for it, too - we've really flexed our songwriting chops on this one.”
