LORDE ADDS PHOENIX TO 2014 NORTH AMERICA TOUR
Grammy nominated New Zealander Lorde continues her worldwide reign. Already becoming the youngest artist to write all of her own material and top the U.S Billboard charts, her debut single ‘Royals’ [Lava/Republic Records] remained at #1 for an impressive 9 weeks, topping the charts in an additional 45 countries and selling 7.5 million copies across the globe.
In March, Lorde and her band will be embarking on a now 20-date tour across North America which starts in Austin, Texas, making a stop in Phoenix at Comerica Theatre on Thursday, April 17th. Special guest Lo-Fang will open the 7:30pm show. Tickets are $35 plus fees and will be available to the public starting THIS FRIDAY, January 17th at 10am at Ticketmaster and the box office.
Lorde, also known as Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O’Connor, who recently turned 17-years-old back in September, is officially the youngest artist to top the chart since 1987. 'Royals' recently set a new record for "Longest #1 at Alternative Radio by a Female Artist" with a staggering seven weeks at the top.
'Royals' has held the #1 spot at Alternative and AAA radio for seven consecutive weeks, and it has become the #1 greatest gainer at Rhythmic and Hot AC formats. 'Royals' also soared to #1 on the iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart as well as #1 on the Alternative Songs Chart.
As soon as it was released, 'Royals' stirred up a frenzy online. It reached the coveted #1 spot on Hype Machine, and it has racked up over 150 million YouTube/VEVO views.
Last year, she took New Zealand by storm when her self-released, The Love Club EP, rose to #1 on the country's top albums chart.
