Kimbra - Janelle Monae

Kimbra and Janelle Monae announce Australian tour 2014

Two of modern music’s most powerfully creative matriarchs are joining forces for The Golden Electric Tour, landing in Australia this May. They’ll be performing together as well as doing their own sets in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Auckland next month.

Monáe’s new album The Electric Lady continues the futuristic themes of her 2010 debut The ArchAndroid with a dazzling mix of funk, soul, jazz, and pop plus cameos from Prince, Erykah Badu, Solange, Miguel, and Esperanza Spalding.

Kimbra is set to release the followup to her 2011 album Vows later this year. The album is set to feature collaborations with Daniel Johns, Van Dyke Parks, Thundercat, Bilal, Mark Foster, John Legend, Matt Bellamy and members of The Mars Volta and Dillinger Escape Plan.

A serendipitous meeting between the two music contemporaries – Janelle Monáe and Kimbra – was the spark for a new friendship that has developed into a mutual desire to explore a joint creative endeavour, culminating in what will be one of the finest co-headline tours of 2014.

The Golden Electric Tour will reveal a stellar show of intertwined joint and individual performances – both artists will perform separate sets with their bands, as well as performing together.

Tickets for all shows go on sale next Thursday, April 17. My Live Nation members can access tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning this Monday, April 14.

Holy Lorde! The mystery of Lorde’s real age revealed!

There’s been a lot of online speculation about Ella Yelich O’Connor aka Lorde’s real age since she debuted with ‘Royals’ back in 2012 – and now it’s finally been settled. It turns out that the birth certificate unearthed by an online site called, The Smoker’s Gun, which claims that Lorde was born Ella Marija Lani Yelich O’Connorov on November 7, 1980 in Russia, was actually an April Fool’s joke. Yes, everyone’s favourite precociously talented teenager is infact a teenager from New Zealand, which still makes her the country’s biggest claim to fame since Keith Urban (who is technically Australian, but we’ll let them have him).

The website called The Hairpin, managed to purchase a copy of Lorde’s birthday certificate, which clearly states her D.O.B as the 7th November 1996. If you think about it, it does make sense that Lorde has been honest with her age. After all, who would want to be 17 again?


You can’t blame people for speculating though, considering Lorde (who will be in Australia next month for a tour), has been evasive about her age in a series of recent interviews. “Hi, I’m Ella,” she told Vanity Fair back in January, “and I’m actually 45.” She also told Rookie’s 35-year-old 17-year-old editor Tavi Gevinson that Sofia Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides “really resonated with me as a teenager”, before immediately correcting, “I mean, I am still a teenager.”

Make of that what you will. Either way, Lorde has still proven to be one of the most talented musicians of our time.
