Our favourite pop princess is coming home this November in support of her upcoming Sophomore album Melodrama to play six intimate shows across New Zealand on her Melodrama World Tour.

The NZ leg of the tour will kick off in Dunedin at the Town Hall, before moving up the country to Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch, Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington, and concluding with a 3-night stint at Auckland’s Powerstation.

Lorde may have traded in the dark, gothic look that we associated with debut album Pure Heroin in favour of the neon shades and sparkles that now accompany her new and improved sound, but that doesn’t mean that we should expect anything different from this era of music. Her quirky and unrehearsed dance moves that we love oh so much remain a common feature of her live shows, and it seems that she is still the sweet, down to earth Kiwi teen that we all fell in love with in 2013. Presumably taking tips from BFF T. Swift on how best to interact with her fans, she continues to use social media to create and maintain relationships with those most loyal to her, and it’s clear that this era will bring us millions more moments of love and closeness.

The 20-year-old success story hasn’t played an NZ show since the year she won her two Grammy awards in 2014, when she played what was then Vector Arena, and since then she has played to tens of thousands of people at festivals across the world, as well as performing on internationally broadcasted shows such as Saturday Night Live. This tour will be a welcome respite from those massive shows, as she rewards Kiwis for their support, patience, and unwavering loyalty as she made a name for both herself and our country across the globe.

With the tiny nature of these venues, the tickets are bound to sell out in minutes. Ticket sales start this coming Wednesday, so check out all the ticket details below and make sure you’re on the ball so as not to miss out on this homecoming tour.
