(Australia) Since emerging just 18 months ago, Lorde’s achievements have been numerous and significant, thanks to a string of instant-classic singles (Royals, Tennis Court, Team) and a classy debut, Pure Heroine: 350 million+ Youtube views; record-breaking chart results around the world; a couple of Grammys and a Brit Award; and critical praise from everyone from Kanye to Bowie, to name but a few.
In Australia, the stats also reflect her enormous popularity: three spots in the top 15 of the Hottest 100 (including a #2 position for ‘Royals’); 6 x Platinum recognition for Royals/The Love Club EP and 2 x Platinum for Pure Heroine; over 16 million Spotify streams (making Royals the most streamed track in 2013); and an acclaimed spot on the 2014 Laneway Festival.
Lorde’s brand new show – which includes a killer light show and a few surprises along the way – has been attracting amazing reviews since it kicked off in the US this week. All shows will be all-ages.
