Sidney Myer Music Bowl

For the first time in six years, global powerhouse Lorde is making her anticipated return to Melbourne as part of her global Solar Power World Tour.

Just announced: one of the most exciting artists on the indie-pop landscape MUNA (USA) will be special guests on her forthcoming dates!

Californian indie-pop trio MUNA will make their Australian debut at Sydney WorldPride on 5 March before joining Lorde at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

Known for their impeccable live performances and stellar on-stage charisma, MUNA’s live show has been described as “effortlessly captivating and endlessly impressive” (Varsity UK).

Released earlier this year, MUNA’s self-titled third studio album is a landmark – the forceful, deliberate, dimensional output of a band who has nothing to prove to anyone except themselves.

Featuring Phoebe Bridgers, album single “Silk Chiffon” was MUNA’s instant-classic cult smash, hitting the grey skies of the pandemic’s year-and-a-half mark in 2021 like a double rainbow. Marked by a newfound creative assurance, the band musters their unique powers to break through the existential muck and transport listeners to a place where vulnerability in the presence of those who love you can make you feel momentarily bulletproof, and self-consciousness only sharpens the swell of joy.

Released last year to critical acclaim, Lorde’s third studio album Solar Power debuted at the top of Australia and New Zealand charts. It sees the artist turning her attention to nature, the record’s lead single “Solar Power” hailed as “her most universal song, hippy in sound and spirit– Lorde conjures its transformational magic anew” by The Guardian.

This March, join Lorde and special guests MUNA and Laura Jean for a sensational night of music. Known for her captivating on-stage presence and enthralling vocals, Lorde doesn’t just put on a show, she delivers a sensory experience. Kick your 2023 off right, and don’t miss what is certain to be a highlight of the year!
