Australian Tour May 2020
UPDATE 19 March 2020: We regret to inform that this tour has been cancelled.
Statement from Asgeir:
In light of the recent recommendations from the government in relation to COVID-19, it is with a very heavy heart that I will be cancelling my upcoming Australian shows.
I was very much looking forward to coming back down, and Australia holds a very special place in my heart, but my priority is everyone’s health and safety first. Please stay safe and I hope to see you all soon. Refunds are available at point of purchase.
Handsome Tours and Secret Sounds are elated to announce the return of beloved Icelandic singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and collaborator, Ásgeir, to Australia for select tour dates in May 2020. The tour will bring Ásgeir’s forthcoming third album “Bury The Moon” (out February 7th) to Australian audiences for the first time.
The enigmatic artist makes music that penetrates a little deeper than most. His debut album soared to success in his native land, before English language edition “In The Silence” connected with an entirely new audience. Here in Australia, it was spotlighted as triple j Feature Album and both the album and it’s lead single ‘King and Cross’ achieved gold ARIA accreditation. That year, ‘King and Cross‘ clocked in at number 10 in The Hottest 100. In 2017 “Afterglow” scored Ásgeir‘s second triple j Feature Album and the station co-presented his sold-out July 2017 Splendour In The Grass sideshows. Ásgeir‘s first Splendour sojourn in 2015 saw him return to Australia just two months after supporting alt-J on their national stadium tour and more recently, returning in 2018 for 3 very special recital hall shows in Sydney and Melbourne, displaying his innate ability to create a sense of intimacy in a room occupied by thousands.
