Keshi Announces Australian And New Zealand Leg Of “HEAVEN/HELL” World Tour

Keshi (aka Casey Luong) has announced his first ever Australasian show series, adding dates in the region to his ‘HEAVEN/HELL’ world tour.

The stint will kick off in Auckland on Friday, November 18, when the Texan singer-songwriter performs at the Powerstation. He then travels to Sydney – playing the UNSW Roundhouse this Sunday (November 20) – before wrapping up with back-to-back shows in Melbourne and Brisbane.

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 11 a.m. local time this Friday, July 15, with a Live Nation presale starting at the same time a day earlier. Find tickets for the Auckland show here, and for the trio of Australian dates here.

The ‘HEAVEN/HELL’ tour comes in support of Luong’s debut album as Keshi, ‘Gabriel’, which landed in March via Island. In a press release, Luong said the album “proven to be much more personal than [he] intended from the start,” reflecting his growth as a young adult and rising artist.

He continued: “It ended up being a way for me to process the experience of having moved from a much less public life to one that I’ve been having a little more trouble navigating lately. I thought about success, purpose, family, pressure and failure; how time is my only commodity and how sex is only skin; how little I care about what people have to say and how important it is at the same time.

“It reminded me how fun making music is supposed to be and that it’s just as much listened to as its words are heard. It’s an album that I hope sincere, varied and on which you can come back again and again.

NOVEMBER
Friday 18 – Auckland, Powerstation
Sunday 20 – Sydney, UNSW rotunda
