TAKING KEiiNO ON A VIRTUAL TRIP ACROSS EUROPE AND BEYOND – DAY 4 – BERLIN, GERMANY

KEiiNO (members Alexandra Rotan, Tom Hugo and Fred Buljo) was selected directly for the final of the 2021 Norwegian Eurovision selection. Their song is called MONUMENT. KEiiNO is very much a fan based group and during their 2019 campaign traveled across Europe to perform their 2019 Eurovision entry Spirit in the sky to their fans in various countries. Due to the Corona pandemic, such a tour is not possible this year and so ESC Covers has decided to take them on a virtual tour for the next 2 or so weeks across Europe and even beyond. Day 4 brings us to BERLIN, GERMANY  and to probably one of the most recognized monument or landmark there, the Brandenburger Tor. Ketil Stokkan is also in the 2021 Norwegian selection, in semi final 2, and in 1990 he represented Norway with a song called Brandenburger Tor, so KEiiNO invited him to join them on the Berlin leg of their virtual tour.

The ESC Covers team of Roy van der Merwe, Ian Fowell and Barry Tsai are arranging this virtual tour.
