The Adelaide Festival announced today that Lorde will play a one-off concert on the Adelaide Oval Village Green on Thursday, March 16, alongside Los Angeles indie pop trio Muna and Adelaide singer-songwriter Stellie.
The concert, marking Lorde’s first visit to Adelaide since 2014, is part of a three-week tour of Australia and New Zealand showcasing her August 2021 album Solar Power.
The 14-song album reached number one in Australia and New Zealand last year. It was the third studio album of Lorde’s career after she burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old in 2013 with her hit single Royals.
Tickets for Lorde’s Adelaide Oval concert go on sale to the general public at 10am on Wednesday, October 19, after a pre-sale to Adelaide Festival members today.
The Village Green has a concert capacity of 15,000 people, according to Adelaide Oval.
The 2023 Adelaide Festival is scheduled to run from March 3 to March 19 and will include the previously announced operatic centrepiece – an epic production of Verdi’s Messa da Requiem featuring 36 dancers from Ballett Zürich, around 75 members of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, the 80-strong Adelaide Festival Chorus, and four soloists.
The full festival program will be released on November 9.
