Go_A Eurovision 2021 Shum Ukraine

Go_A have announced a 14-country European tour over the summer, with part of the proceeds going to support Ukraine. The electro-folk four-piece represented Ukraine at Eurovision 2021, finishing in 5th place. They’ve remained firmly on the Eurofan radar ever since: Their entry “Shum” subsequently became a viral hit on TikTok, racking up almost 66 million streams on Spotify. 

In an Instagram post announcing the tour, the band spoke of their intent to support Ukraine by becoming cultural ambassadors, bringing Ukrainian music across the continent.

A post shared by Go_A (@go_a_band)

“On February 24, the Russian Federation launched a full-scale military invasion of Ukraine.
The realities of war are horrifying and incredibly painful, but our music will resound despite everything, because we are fighting for our freedom to live, love and sound in our homeland.

“We feel the strength to return to concert activities because by doing so we are able to raise funds to help Ukraine. We believe that our concerts draw attention to our unique Ukrainian culture and we do our best not to let people around the world forget that the war is still going on here. We are doing everything to debunk the myth that Ukraine is part of Russia. Ukraine is an original country with its own history, its own language and its own sovereign territory. So it has always been, so it is and so it will be.

“We are going on a big tour. 14 countries. 28 cities. Hundreds of platforms through which we can convey our message to people around the world. We are incredibly grateful to you for this opportunity, friends. The gratitude and support is deeply felt.

“We believe that very soon we will gather you all in Kyiv to celebrate our victory.
“But now we must keep on working hard on the cultural front.

“See you soon!

“Links to the tickets can be found in our “Concerts” highlights and on our website.

“Part of the profit goes to the needs of Ukraine.”

As part of the tour, Go_A are due to perform at Glastonbury, the UK’s biggest festival which attracts around 200,000 attendees. In an interview with the Daily Mirror, the band confirmed that they are “in constant contact” with the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine and that male members of the band have been given special permission to leave Ukraine, in order to embark upon the tour. 

Will Go_A be performing in your city? Have you bought your tickets already? Let us know in the comments!

Funds from now on should NOT go to the Ukrainian government or army, they are just prolonging the war and causing more lives to be lost in the long term. The money, if donated, should go to the actual Ukrainian people, those who have lost their homes, to have them rebuilt and to feed them. They are the people who have been manipulated and are the ones who have suffered the most.
