Before Lorde, New Zealand was famous for little more than sheep and Lord of the Rings. Now it’s equally famous as the birthplace of 17-year-old global pop phenomenon Lorde, who quietly posted her debut EP The Love Club onto the internet for free download in November of 2012. And then the world exploded. Helped along by props from Napster co-founder and former Facebook president Sean Parker (who added Lorde’s breakout hit “Royals” onto his influential Spotify playlist), the song went on to become a viral sensation that flat-out owned 2013. With radio stations flooded with requests, the song dominated airwaves as well as charts — hitting the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and cementing her status as a force to be reckoned with. Yet little is known about the life of this enigmatic teen raised in a quiet suburb of Auckland, New Zealand. As the child of an award-winning New Zealand poet and a voracious young consumer of literature, Lorde (born Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor) was reportedly reading Kurt Vonnegut at age 12 and signed a record deal with Universal at age 13. Yet for all her early success, Lorde tickets remained scarce, as barely anyone had yet to see her perform live in concert. All that changed in the summer of 2013, when a last minute cancellation resulted in Lorde slipping into the lineup at Australia’s Splendor in the Grass festival, where she performed to 10,000 fans eager to find out where they could score Lorde tickets to her next show. Lorde tickets finally became available for her first concert in North America in August 2013, when she performed to a largely music industry crowd at New York City’s 700-capacity Le Poisson Rogue. The lucky few with Lorde tickets would be introduced to an unflappable performer who is mature well beyond her years, interacting with the crowd of Lorde tickets holders through subtle smirks and hair flips. Continuing to focus on her recording, Lorde dropped her debut full-length album Pure Heroine in September 2013 as well as a 4-song Live In Concert Spotify stream for the growing legion of fans that wanted to get their hands on Lorde tickets but would have to wait until her still yet-to-be-announced tour. Meanwhile, Lorde would go on to become the first female to top the U.S. Billboard Alternative Songs chart since 1996 and, at nine weeks at the number one spot, the youngest artist to hold that spot in more than 25 years. The accolades continued to flow into early 2014, when Lorde won two Grammys for “Song of the Year” and “Best Pop Solo Performance.” Lorde tickets have recently been released for a 15-market tour in March that will take the teen sensation from Texas to California, with three dates at NYC’s Roseland Ballroom among the most sought-after Lorde tickets. It was also recently announced that Lorde will be making her first major U.S. festival appearance at Coachella this April, while Lorde tickets were also released for additional dates in Phoenix and Las Vegas. In fact, Lorde tickets on the secondary market are among the top five most expensive for any female performer in 2014, which shows just how strong demand continues to be for Spotify’s “Most Viral New Artist Worldwide” of 2013. There is no doubt that Lorde has our attention. What she does with it will be among the most fascinating stories to watch in 2014.
