iHeartRadio and Lorde Combine for First Major Concert


iHeartRadio and Lorde Combine for First Major Concert

14 August 2013 – The Radio Network’s (TRN) all-in-one digital radio service iHeartRadio is living up to its name of leading the way in music by presenting New Zealand’s latest singing sensation Lorde in a free one-off concert in Auckland. CEO of TRN, Jane Hastings, says the gig is specifically to celebrate the full launch of iHeartRadio in New Zealand.

“iHeartRadio will be available for free on mobile and web to all New Zealanders in September so what better way to celebrate the full launch than by providing an opportunity for several thousand of those people that have registered for iHeartRadio to see Lorde live and for free.”

Lorde has been somewhat of a mystery, to date she has only performed intimate shows in New Zealand, of which all three sold out in minutes. The iHeartRadio concert will be the only chance New Zealanders will have to see Lorde in concert at home this year.

“When iHeartRadio approached me about doing a free show at Vector, I flipped out,” says Lorde. “Playing for New Zealand audiences is a huge treat for me, and this show in particular is going to be really cool.”

“Her popularity in New Zealand and overseas is incredible” says Hastings. “She is highly sought after and a name that everyone is talking about. iHeartRadio is all about providing music fans with the best access to music artists, live broadcast and custom radio stations. Lorde is the perfect artist to celebrate the full launch of iHeartRadio.”

The free iHeartRadio Lorde concert will be on Saturday 7 September at 8pm at Vector Arena. Registered users of iHeartRadio will receive an exclusive invitation for two free tickets on a first-in first-served arrangement.
