As one of the most exciting artists touring the live events circuit, Gotye tickets are sure to sell fast! Gotye was born Wouter de Backer in Belgium in 1980; he moved to Melbourne, Australia with his family when he was 2 years old. The moniker Gotye is the pet name that was given to him as a child, and is the French translation of his Flemish first name, Wouter. The roots of his Gotye project started when an elderly neighbour passed on their large collection of old records to De Backer. Using this treasure trove of music he began recording his first tracks using cut and paste samples in a bedroom studio. Gotye’s early work was successful in his adopted home country of Australia, winning him five prestigious ARIA awards. However it was his smash hit ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ that caught the attention of the rest of the world. Released in 2011, this quirky song has racked up over 240 million YouTube views and reached the number 1 spot in 10 countries, including the Billboard Hot 100 in the US.
