Following the announcement of Kalush Orchestra’s North American Tour to raise relief money for Ukraine, Resilience Entertainment Group has revealed that Tina Karol will also embark on a 12 city tour of the US and Canada. Karol’s tour will hit many of the same cities and venues as Kalush Orchestra such as Seattle, San Fransisco, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Toronto, but is set to begin on September 29th and end on October 16th. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased on Bomond’s website.
Proceeds from the tour will benefit the “Polyus Tyazhinnia” fund in Ukraine, which has been supporting children’s cancer hospitals in the country since 2014. Despite the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the foundation continues their important work. But Karol also hopes that the tour can also bring awareness through the medium of musical performance. Speaking about the tour to us, Karol said: “The stage is a “musical front” on which the struggle for the preservation of the cultural heritage of Modern Ukraine is taking place. Today is the time for unity. Time to fight for life and for the sake of life. We have to be together so that the world does not forget and get used to the terrible events happening in Ukraine.”
The tour is being promoted by the global promotion and production company Resilience Entertainment Group, who organize public and private concerts to promote the careers of artists from Eastern and Central Europe. Karol’s tour is one of four tours organized by the company this Fall, and this is not the first time they’ve worked with her.
“We are incredibly lucky to work with Tina Karol again. She is one of the most recognizable voices in Ukraine, a tremendous talent. I was born and raised in Ukraine myself, and since the beginning of this war, 100% of our efforts have been geared toward helping and supporting Ukraine in every way possible. Aside from nonprofits and NGO’s artists are working with direct, we as an organization, are working with Ukrainian-American NGOs helpheroesofukraine.com and gate.org, who are doing amazing work helping Ukraine,” says Igor Golubchik, CEO of Resilience Entertainment.
Tina Karol was introduced to Eurovision fans when she participated in 2006 with the song “Show Me Your Love”, finishing in 7th place in the final. Since then Karol has served as a coach on the Ukrainian version of The Voice and currently stands as the coach with the most wins on the show. Karol is also a highly decorated artist holding numerous awards from the YUNAs, the M1 Music Awards, and being awarded the title of People’s Artist of Ukraine and the Order of Princess Olga by President Zelensky in 2020.
Resilience Entertainment Group is also organizing charity concerts in North America featuring Lyapis Truberskoy this September, Kalush Orchestra this October and November, and Alyona Alyona, Jerry Heil and KOLA this November, with tickets on sale now. An additional charity concert is happening in London on November 2nd featuring Monatik, Eurovision 2018 star Alekseev, and Tvorchi.
