Australia’s 2023 representatives Voyager have announced that they will postpone their European tour due to illness.
Tour Cancellation and Danny’s diagnosis
The band were due to play sell out dates across Europe in October 2023 as part of their ‘Fearless in Love’ tour, showcasing their latest album release and their extensive back catalogue.
However, they have put out a statement saying they are “absolutely devastated” they are unable to tour as planned and must postpone the tour. This is due to Daniel ‘Danny’ Estrin, their lead vocalist, being diagnosed with cancer and requiring immediate treatment.
The tour will be rescheduled for October 2024 – fans with tickets will be able to keep hold of their tickets for the future dates or request a refund from their ticket provider.
All of us at That Eurovision Site wish Danny the best for their treatment and look forward to seeing the band back in action in the future.

Voyager participated in Australia Decides in 2022 with their song “Dreamer”, but placed second in their selection. They returned in 2023, when they were internally selected to represent Australia with their entry “Promise”. Performing in the second semi-final, Australia finished first in the semi-final, qualifying for the Grand Final. The band eventually finished in 9th place, receiving 151 points – 21 from the televote and 130 from the juries.
