New Zealand-born artist returns to the ARIAs stage after performing in 2013.
International superstar and GRAMMY award winner Lorde will be returning to Sydney to perform at the 2017 ARIA Awards with Apple Music at The Star Event Centre, Sydney on Tuesday 28th November 2017 broadcasted on the Nine Network.
Lorde’s triumphant return with single ‘Green Light’ this year, which immediately launched the singer to the top worldwide trending topic on Facebook and Twitter, amassing an incredible 2 billion impressions on Twitter alone within its first 24 hours. Rolling Stone praised her return single as, “a reflection of her own emerging adulthood” and The FADER declared the track, “a true pop anthem – made for both earbud strutting and the club”. Lorde has now released her highly anticipated sophomore album, Melodrama.
ARIA Chief Executive Officer, Dan Rosen, said: “Lorde is an amazingly talented artist and one of the biggest acts in the world right now. We are so excited to welcome her back to the ARIA stage in what is sure to be a magic moment from this incredible performer.”
It’s been almost four years since a 16-year-old Lorde quietly yet confidently asserted herself as the voice of a generation with her full-length debut, Pure Heroine in 2013. The album went on to gain a triple-platinum status, win her a plethora of awards including two GRAMMYS, and spawn the the seven-times platinum record-breaking international juggernaut single ‘Royals’ and it’s quadruple-platinum follow up ‘Team’.
New-Zealand born Lorde quickly became a pop-prodigy, with her breakout single cementing her the youngest solo artist and the only New Zealander to achieve #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 since 1987”. Time exalted her amongst the “Most Influential Teenagers in the World,” she landed on Forbes’s “30 Under 30” List, graced the cover of Rolling Stone and performed alongside Nirvana during the 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.
SInce then, while working on her follow-up album, Lorde remained busy, also curating the official soundtrack for THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY - PART 1 and recorded ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’ as the lead single, which scored a Golden Globe nomination, and collaborating with U.K. dance duo Disclosure on 'Magnets'.
To celebrate the release of Melodrama, Lorde announced a massive MELODRAMA WORLD TOUR, which sees her meteoric return to Australian shores, including two shows at the Sydney Opera House Forecourt, crowning her the youngest artist in history to headline the prestigious venue.
