Keshi tour

US pop-star Keshi has announced a 'HELL/HEAVEN' tour of Australia and New Zealand for November 2022.

Singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Keshi has today announced Asia-Pacific dates for his HELL/HEAVEN tour, including shows in Australia and New Zealand this November. The announcement comes off the back of the release of Keshi’s debut album GABRIEL (out now via Island Records) and a sold-out run of Europe and North America tour dates. Tickets go on sale at 11am, Friday July 15.

Monikered as keshi (stylized), a phonetic play on his name, Keshi commands a large and loyal fan base, with nearly 3.5 billion listens worldwide. Keshi has become a streaming force with his latest debut album, GABRIEL, and acclaimed trilogy of EPs — skeletons (2019), bandaids (2020), and always (2020).

Released March 2022 via Island Records, GABRIEL is keshi’s magnum opus, where for the first time, the 27-year-old singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist finds himself as the main character of his sonically articulated world.

GABRIEL is a record that turned out much more personal than I intended from the beginning,” he shared. “It ended up being a means for me to process the experience of having transitioned from a much less public life to another I’m having a little more trouble navigating recently. I thought about success, purpose, family, pressure, and failure; how time is my only commodity and how sex is just skin; how little I care for what people have to say and how important it is at the same time. I was reminded how fun making music is supposed to feel, and that it’s just as much listened to as its lyrics are heard. It’s an album that I hope is candid, varied, and one you can come back to again and again.”

GABRIEL was made in one summer between Houston, where Keshi is from, and Los Angeles with Baltimore producer and songwriter Elie Rizk, who co-produced the album. Until GABRIEL, Keshi has been a self-reliant artist, who wrote, produced, engineered and played all the instrumentation on his projects. His initial success includes making his first Billboard appearance when skeletons EP hit number 59 on the Top Album Sales chart. With GABRIEL, keshi reached number four, which became the highest charting debut album from a new artist in 2022. On Spotify alone, keshi has generated 5.5 million monthly listeners and his single, ‘GET IT’ landed on VIRAL 50.

Keshi sold out his 2022 North American and European headlining tour, HELL/HEAVEN, within minutes during the artist’s pre-sale, leading to additional dates and larger venues. For the U.S and Canada alone, Keshi sold out 40,000 plus tickets across the 30 dates, with venues ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 capacity. Other accolades include his feature on Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: The Album with the song ‘War With Heaven’ and collaborations with renowned brands like YSL, Fender and Microsoft.
