Kalush Orchestra will be touring North America in November 2023.
Eurovision 2022 winners Kalush Orchestra have confirmed that they will be embarking on a North American tour in November 2023. They will perform in 20 cities across the United States and Canada.
Kalush Orchestra have previously toured North America in October and November 2022, where they performed in sixteen cities across the United States and Canada. This years tour sees them performing in these same sixteen cities, with the inclusion of Vancouver, San Diego, Boston, Cleveland and Detroit.
As was the case with their North American tour in 2022, the band will be collecting funds to help Ukraine in their ongoing conflict with Russia.
Kalush is a Ukrainian rap group formed in 2019, consisting of Oleh Psiuk, Ihor Didenchuk and breakdancer MC KylymMen. The group launced their side project, Kalush Orchestra in early 2021 and released their debut album Hotin (Хотінь) in February of that year.
In 2022, Kalush Orchestra participated in Vidbir in an attempt to represent Ukraine at Eurovision 2022. They initially finished in second place behind Alina Pash, but after she declined to represent her country at Eurovision, the group was offered the chance to represent Ukraine at Eurovision 2022. They went on to achieve a third Eurovision win for Ukraine (after 2004 and 2016) and currently hold the record for the highest televote score ever recorded in Eurovision – 439 points.
In late May 2022, Kalush Orchestra auctioned off their Eurovision trophy and the groups rapper Oleh Psiuk’s pink bucket hat, bringing in $900,000 (approximatley 838 Euros). The money raised went to the Ukrainian Army, by buying a PD-2 Drone for them.
