News: Kimbra announces Australian November tour dates

2 min read

(AUS) New Zealand’s leading lady, KIMBRA, is set to bring her signature electric and powerful performances to the stage for a trio of shows this November.

Embarking on a mid-October US tour which includes a sold out show at Hollywood’s iconic Roxy Theatre, the ever-stylish singer-songwriter, Kimbra, returns to Australia and her native New Zealand in support of her brand new album, ‘The Golden Echo’ (through Warner Music Australia), playing Auckland’s Powerstation, Sydney’s Metro Theatre and Melbourne’s Hi-Fi.

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 10am on Thursday September 4.

Winner of the ARIA Award for ‘Best Female Artist’ for two years in succession, as well as five Tui awards at the New Zealand Music Awards, last week Kimbra offered her highly-anticipated sophomore album, ‘The Golden Echo’, which shot into in the ARIA and RIANZ charts at #5 this week.

‘The Golden Echo’, featuring singles ‘90’s Music’ and ‘Miracle’, was co-produced by Kimbra and Rich Costey and the wonderful kaleidoscope of collaborators include members of the Mars Volta, Muse, Foster the People and Daniel Johns of Silverchair.

Kimbra emerged with her debut album ‘Vows’ in 2011. The album is home to singles: ‘Settle Down’, ‘Cameo Lover’ (for which she won the grand prize in the International Song Writing Competition 2011), ‘Good Intent’ and ‘Two Way Street’; all of which ranked in Triple J’s Hottest 100. The album debuted in the US Billboard Top 200 at #14 and achieved platinum status in both New Zealand and Australia.

In 2012 Kimbra followed up with the #1 worldwide smash hit, ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’, her duet with Gotyé, which topped the charts in eleven countries. The massive single retained the #1 ARIA spot for an impressive eight weeks, was the biggest selling single in the US in 2012 and won two GRAMMY Awards.
