Lizzo announces Splendour In The Grass sideshows Double J
Lizzo is a force of nature. A pop culture icon of the highest order. An incredible musician, and one whose influence extends well beyond that discipline and into fashion, film, and self-empowerment.
She has a string of songs that feel like genuine anthems. Feel-good tracks that don't just make you wanna dance, they make you wanna be a better person. Better to those you love, better to the world, and most importantly, better to yourself.
She's taught a generation to love themselves. Hell, she even insisted on flipping Double J to 'Double Yay' when she called in a couple of years back.
She is 100 percent that bitch (like, officially) and, as we heard last week, she's coming back to Australia in 2023.
Today, we're pleased to let you know that Lizzo will play three big arena shows while here to headline Splendour In The Grass, with arena dates set for Perth, Melbourne, and Sydney through mid-July.
This is Lizzo's first trip to Australia since 2020, where she blew minds at FOMO festivals around the country and with big, sold out shows at the Sydney Opera House and Forum Theatre in Melbourne.
"This is all-singing, all-dancing, and all-positive," we wrote of that tour. "There's no room for bitterness, there's no room for shame, there's no room for chill; this is a party.
"Her voice never falters, and ensures anyone arguing that her show is more about style than substance is simply wrong."
If you love Lizzo, do not hesitate to go to these shows. You'll feel like you're walking on air when they're done.
What's more, you'll also get to see the indomitable Tkay Maidza, who will open up all shows on the tour.
Tkay has been one of Australia's finest rappers and singers for years now and every chance to see her should be relished. She's a world class act worthy of gracing stages this big every day of the week.
She was a monumental highlight of Laneway this year and she'll set the tone beautifully for Queen Lizzo's non-stop party.
