Vodafone Fantastic Fridays gets Lorde fans first in line for concert tickets

Vodafone customers who are fans of Kiwi singing sensation Lorde can get exclusive pre-sale tickets to her New Zealand tour – 48 hours before anyone else.

This exclusive music offer is part of Vodafone Fantastic Fridays, a loyalty programme launched last month which rewards Vodafone customers and connects them to things they love – like music. Vodafone pre-sale Lorde tickets are available from midday on Monday 25 August until midday Wednesday 27 August.

Vodafone Consumer Director, Matt Williams, says Lorde’s tour provides an exciting opportunity to thank customers for choosing Vodafone.

“With Fantastic Fridays, we’re offering an incredible range of movie, music and sports experiences, and fantastic Prepay Deals. From the biggest concerts to the best movies and sporting events, we’re bringing exclusive offers across a range of experiences. You simply need to be a Vodafone customer to access them.

“We know this is going to be a sell-out tour, so Vodafone customers can register online at for the opportunity to get in early to buy tickets.”

After months of wowing fans overseas, Lorde will play four New Zealand concerts in, Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland in October and early November, bringing her hugely successful debut tour to a close.

The 17-year-old double Grammy-winner has performed only two other solo concerts in New Zealand this year – both sold out in minutes.

"You only get a singer like this once in a generation or two," commented Wynton Marsalis, who has repeatedly hired her to front his jazz orchestra and mounted a 25 foot high portrait of her on the exterior of Lincoln Center. “She radiates authority. She has poise, elegance, soul, humour, sensuality, power, virtuosity, range, insight, intelligence, depth, and grace.” More>>

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional.
