Lorde announces Australian tour including Perth show

Singer Lorde is coming to Perth and will be performing in Kings Park on Saturday 18 November.

The singer was last here in 2015, and previously performed at the St Jerome’s Lane Way Festival in 2014.

Lorde announced an 11-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.

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 16 June 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 Liabilit’ as well as today’s surprise release Sober – Melodrama’s tasters are critically acclaimed in the recorded and live arena.
