Lorde 2014 Tour
Lorde, born Ella Yelich-O’Connor, is a New Zealand singer/songwriter who signed with Universal Music at the tender age of thirteen. Her first single “Royals,” set the tone for her career, as the song questions the unrelatable lyrics of pop and hip-hop superstars that idolized extravagance and opulence. Evident in follow-up hits, “Team” and “Tennis Court,” Lorde’s intention to put forth relevant music from her teenage languor and self-professed feminist standpoint for the kids of her generation was realized, and gratefully received worldwide.
After sojourning two co-headlining tours with Arctic Monkeys
and Vampire Weekend, Lorde recently announced a solo tour
in March of 2014. Three dates in Texas, three in New York City, two in Missouri, and two in Oakland, CA are currently listed in the string of 18 nights, with more dates presumed to be added.
She may be a teenager who just exploded onto the music scene, but Lorde has already had a prolific career: she has been nominated for 4 Grammys, was placed on Time’s Most Influential Teens list, is the first New Zealand act to top the Billboard Hot 100, and became Spotify’s most viral new artist worldwide. She considers Taylor Swift a close friend, and cites James Blake, Otis Redding, J Cole
and Grimes as influences to her distinct sound. The curly quaffed singer has a voice as loud as her iconic mane, and this “alpha female” is undoubtedly a musical force to experience live. Grab Lorde tickets and join in on the inspired youth revelry today!
