The Shadow Works Ceremony is an concert tour by Estonian singer-songwriter Kerli, in support of her third studio album, Shadow Works (2019).

Background and development[edit | edit source]

Kerli performed, for the first time, some of the Shadow Works songs in a private show in Hong Kong on March 3, 2019.[1] On May 6, Kerli has begun to work on the Shadow Works Tour (later officially renamed Shadow Works Ceremony), making concept images for the visuals, editing sounds and "beats" and starting to talk to directors and experts to make everything she has imagined come to reality.[2] Later on, in June, when trying to come up with a name for the show, she asked her Moonchildren on Instagram for some suggestion: on June 25 she announced, with an Instagram Story, that the show will be called Shadow Works Ceremony.[3] She performed the Shadow Works Ceremony for the first time on August 3, 2019 at Intsikurmu, an annual held in Estonia that celebrates all forms of art.[4]
