Voyager will return to Badlands Bar on 29th April for a headline show chock a block of the band’s hits old to new. Tickets and details are at https://bit.ly/VoyagerPerthShow.
In the days leading into the competition/broadcast, Newscorp’s papers Australia-wide put Voyager at the top of their form guide, saying: “Welcome Voyager, fusing the Nordic metal vibes with 80s pop. Their synth-pop meets bombastic rock entry is one of the strongest contenders. The official video nails the kind of geometric lighting design loved by the voters. There’s also a keytar, so very Eurovision.”
In the days running down to the competition – the band won the Aussievision’s Australia Decides 2022 public poll in their bid for Eurovision for the song “Dreamer”. The last two polls’ winners, Kate Miller-Heidke and Montaigne, went on to win ‘Australia Decides!’ The results can be seen HERE.
