Grammy nominated New Zealander Lorde will bring her band for a 16-date tour in North America.
Lorde and her band will embark on a 16-date tour across North America in March, starting in Austin, Texas, making stops New York City, Chicago, Boston to name a few and winding up on the west coast at the 2,800 capacity Fox Oakland Theater in California. See the dates and places below.
Lorde, also known as Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O’Connor, is becoming the youngest artist to write all of her own material and top the U.S Billboard charts 9 weeks in a row. The single also topped charts in 45 countries and sold 7.5 million copies across the globe. Recently turning 17, she 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 seven weeks at the top.
A new video was recently released for the song ‘Team’. The concept was realized by Ella herself, as explained on her facebook and Twitter .
“(The video) was borne from a dream I had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was Queen. I dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. And of this world, I dreamt about tests that didn’t need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger.”
