Since her last North American tour — which included stops at 2014’s Coachella Festival and an impromptu appearance on stage with Nirvana’s Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic at this year’s annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Awards — Lorde’s debut album “PURE HEROINE” [LAVA/Republic Records] continues to dominate U.S charts.
In January Lorde walked away with “Song of the Year” and “Best Pop Solo Performance” awards at the 2014 Grammy Awards and has since been nominated for an impressive 12 Billboard Music Awards and took home awards for “Best New Artist” and “Best Rock Song” for her debut single “Royals”
Lorde also performed her current single “Tennis Court” for the very first time on national television at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, held in Las Vegas.
Since its release in September 2013, “PURE HEROINE” has reached PLATINUM status and has sold over 1.2 millions copies.
