SKOPJE, FORMER YUGOSLAV REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA – With only seven weeks to go before the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 final in Stockholm, this year’s FYR Macedonia’s entry, Kaliopi will be busy touring Europe to promote her stunning song ‘Dona’. The much loved FYR Macedonia’s superstar will spend this time reconnecting with Eurovision fans in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia, Moscow, Amsterdam and London. The promo tour will be the perfect opportunity for Kaliopi to get reacquainted with European music journalist and fans after her much loved 2012 Eurovision performance of ‘Crno I Belo’.
Regarding her upcoming trip to Moscow, Kaliopi said she was very much looking forward to performing ‘Dona’ live for the very first time at the Eurovision gala party in Russian capital. She said: „ I am enormously happy to come to Moscow again, after many, many years. This time I will probably meet different Moscow from the one I remember, but to be embraced by the spirit of Moscow is a true privilege. And that’s why I am happy as a little child when it comes to my arrival to Moscow“!
In Amsterdam she will participate in this year’s biggest Eurovision preview show Eurovision in concert alongside at least 24 participating countries. Fans from all around Europe will come to see a very special performance of Dona, a song specially written and produced for Eurovision by her long term collaborator Romeo Grill.
Kaliopi’s trip to the UK will be extra special as she will be the only perform at the London Eurovision Song Contest to be sponsored by the official UK fan club. Speaking of this, the UK fan club president Alasdair Rendall said:
As one of the biggest Eurovision fan clubs in the world it’s only appropriate that OGAE UK brings to London one of the biggest stars of this year’s contest. We know that Kaliopi will take the British Eurovision fans to her heart and we look forward to seeing a world-class performance from her at the Cafe de Paris!
Within the promo tour in the second half of April, Kaliopi has plans to visit Tirana and Sofia.
In meantime Kaliopi and her team are working on stage performance, preparation of promotional material and the overall agenda for the visit of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonian Eurovision delegation in Stockholm.
