The group shared more details saying,
"We can't wait to perform during ‘Eurovision - Australia Decides’, as the first stop of our Australian tour! To be guest-starring in this impressive line-up of artists is a true honour, and we promise to put on a show that will bring back memories of 2019 and turn them into an epic moment of 2022. The Australian audience is amazing, so there's no other place in the world we'd rather be than on Gold Coast the last weekend of February!"
Speaking to Aussievision, Tom from KEiiNO said
"The day we left Australia last time, we were saying "we have to go back", as the Australian fans were amazing. There is so much culture, we just tapped into the rich culture and Indigenous culture, that we really want to learn more. We really wanted to make this tour about both getting to know the people, the culture and we're also going to do a bit of a filming for a documentary about the diverse Australia."
Since 2019 the group have been incredibly busy releasing their album ‘Okta’ as well as 20 singles (including a collaboration with Electric Fields) and some documentary films in just over two years.
One of the film series followed the group attempting to make Eurovision 2021 with their song ‘Monument’ which finished runner-up to TIX’s ‘Fallen Angel’ at Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix.
‘Monument’ however became a big hit with fans winning both the OGAE Second Chance contest (where fan clubs across the world vote for their favourite song not to make Eurovision) as well as our very own National Final Countdown (a poll of the best national final songs of all time).
Tickets will be available from 11:00am AEDT at https://tix.to/keiinoz
