Fresh from their Eurovision journey, Voyager will celebrate with an Australian tour no matter the outcome of their time in the competition.
Voyager have announced a June national tour, fresh off the announcement that they will represent Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest. No matter the outcome of their time in the competition, fans will get to celebrate the sheer magnitude of their achievement.
The Perth synth metal outfit are hitting your city every Friday and Saturday from 9 to 24 June. The shows begin on Friday, 9 June, at Brisbane’s The Zoo, before heading to Stay Gold in Melbourne, Adelaide’s Unibar, the Rosemount Hotel for a hometown show, the Metro Social in Sydney, and The Basement in Canberra. You can find tickets here.
“Absolutely can't wait to get this show back on the road! We've got so much pent up excitement that we're ready to burst... Looking forward to letting it all out on stage after our epic voyage to Eurovision! What better way to bring our incredible fans together than to return to our homeland to play some headline shows,” the band wrote on social media.
The 67th Eurovision Song Contest will be held from Tuesday, 9 May - Saturday, 13 May 2023, and Voyager will give it their best shot with a new track.
Due to set sail overseas with Promise, an epic, progressive pop metal track that transports the listener on an emotional story of adventure and redemption, vocalist Danny Estrin belts out the opening line, “Have you ever done anything like this before?” to which many viewers can confirm they haven't.

For the first time in Australia's history with Eurovision, a band will represent the country. And this one utilises soaring melodies, masterful riffs, keytar solos, powerhouse rhythms, and enough charisma to win the 67th Song Contest.
Voyager have tried to score a slot at Eurovision since Australia's first year of participation in 2015. At last year’s Eurovision – Australia Decides, they took out second place in a nail-biting finish, leading the public vote with their song Dreamer.
"As a long-time Eurovision fan, this is the pinnacle - Voyager gets to play the greatest show on earth," Estrin commented in a statement. "Our song Promise is made for the Eurovision stage, and collectively we feel it's one of our best yet. We filmed the music video in both the city of Perth and beautiful parts of Western Australia to showcase the majestic beauty of our home state. Eurovisionation, we are coming!"
