MELODRAMA WORLD TOUR
12-date AU & NZ TOUR THIS NOVEMBER
WITH SPECIAL GUEST GEORGE MAPLE (AU ONLY)
Frontier Touring (Australia & New Zealand) and Eccles Entertainment (New Zealand) are thrilled to confirm Lorde for an 12-date run across the Antipodes this November. All eyes are on the meteoric return of one of pop’s most celebrated talents with an all new album, Melodrama, and captivating live show.
‘LORDE IS BACK!!!!!’ – coupdemain NZ
‘An unprecedented kaleidoscopic take on modern pop music...’ – Pedestrian TV
‘Lorde has resurfaced as clever and mysterious as she first emerged’ – Noisey AU
The tour begins in Lorde’s home country – New Zealand, where she will play six shows before arriving in Australia for the remaining dates in Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne as well as a headline slot at Canberra’s Spilt Milk Festival.
At the age of just 16, Lorde released her first album Pure Heroine (Universal), breaking into the international market and later going on to win two Grammy Awards including the coveted Album of the Year. The album peaked at #1 in over 20 countries, including Australia, New Zealand and America and featuring chart topping tracks ‘Royals’, ‘Tennis Court’ and ‘Team’.
Now 20, Lorde has truly grown in her formidable talent. Her forthcoming second studio album Melodrama (out now through Universal Music) is one of the most anticipated records of the year. Produced by Lorde, the esteemed Jack Antonoff and Frank Dukes, the album was recorded between Jack’s flat and Electric Lady Studios.
Fronted by the release of three stunning songs – current single ‘Perfect Places’, ‘Green Light’ and ‘Liability’ as well as today’s surprise release ‘Sober’ – Melodrama’s tasters are critically acclaimed in the recorded and live arena. Lorde’s stunning debut performance of ‘Green Light’ on Saturday Night Live made international waves, reminding us all of her compelling vocals and stage presence.
Following her 2017 TV debut, Lorde went onto play the main stage of Coachella showcasing four of her new songs to critical acclaim.
‘Perfect Places’ is a glorious popstravaganza that captures Lorde at her best:
thoughtful, melancholic, poetry and saying what her peers are thinking.’ – The Spinoff NZ
‘The strength of her newer material was also on display’ – Rolling Stone
‘Everybody loves Lorde. Her combination of dream-pop music and heartbreakingly human lyrics appeal to everyone.’ - Music Junkee AU
Finally, Lorde returns to New Zealand and Australia. Be there to see her take to the stage this November!
