Lorde’s Australian Tour Postponed Due To Illness

It is with much regret that Frontier Touring announce that Lorde has had to postpone her upcoming Australian tour, scheduled to commence in Melbourne this Thursday 24 April.

Under doctor’s advice, Ella Yelich-O'Connor will return to New Zealand for immediate rest and recuperation in order to regain complete health and continue touring for the rest of the year.

"It breaks my heart to have to postpone these shows as the band and I absolutely love playing to Australian crowds, and it was not a decision we made lightly. I know I need to focus on getting better in order to perform at my best. We'll be with you as soon as we can, Aussies." - Ella Yelich-O'Connor

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary.
