Hold your breath as Australia’s very own global singing sensation Troye Sivan is set to prove this July and August why he is pop music’s newest superstar. Fresh from staging headline shows in Sydney and Perth, the Blue Neighborhood Tour will mark Troye’s debut headline performances in most Australian cities!
Troye Sivan has cemented himself as a music force over the past two years. First cutting his teeth in suburban Perth, Sivan quickly evolved into one of the most celebrated YouTubers, having a channel that gathered four million subscribers and a whopping 241 million views. Following the announcement of Troye’s iTunes chart topping release TRXYE (2014), pre-orders sky put the EP to #1 in 66 countries.
Sivan’s Wild mini-album in August 2014 sent the record to the top of the charts on pre-orders alone in 56 countries including Australia, USA and the UK. Upon its highly anticipated release, Wild dominated the ARIA Album Chart and peaked at #5 in both the USA and UK.
Featuring smash hit singles ‘Youth’, ‘Wild’, ‘Fools’ and current radio hit, ‘Talk Me Down’, Blue Neighbourhood recently reached gold status in Australia and landed in the Top 20 of album charts in Australia, Canada, Denmark, New Zealand and United States, while his explosive Spotify figures are fast approaching 1 billion streams.
The album features collaborations with fun.’s Jack Antonoff and Grimes and vocal features from Aussie hip hop prodigy Allday and electro-pop starlet Tkay Maidza.
“A star is born…” – Rolling Stone
“Sivan is a gust of fresh air.” – Herald Sun
“Stunning and awesome” – Taylor Swift
“Full of smoothly rendered light pop-soul with dance music flourishes” – New York Times
Sivan also collected accolades – taking home awards from the YouTube Music Awards, Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, EMA and just last week scooped up the gong for Outstanding Music Artists at the GLAAD Media Awards. Troye also fronted the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine Australia – a huge feat for the 20-year old Perth native.
Troye Sivan’s message of self-love and acceptance found in his song lyrics, interviews and self-produced YouTube videos are what endeared him to the world. Making his live television debut last December performing ‘Youth’ on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Sivan has since taken to the stage to perform the song on The Ellen Show, while more recently making his acting debut in a hilarious skit on James Cordon’s The Late Show. In the same episode Sivan did an endearing and unmissable first ever interview on a talk show with James Cordo.
Taking to the stages in Australia as support to Troye will be solo electro pop singer and producer Nicole Millar.
This marks the second time she will be sharing the stage with Troye, following her performance in support of him at Enmore Theatre earlier this year. Her sultry vocals feature on track ‘Tremble’, which has over 2 million plays on Spotify and has been one of the most played tracks on triple j since its release. The world is truly at Millar’s feet, having toured with the likes of Peking Duk and RUFUS, she is no stranger to the stage. Treating the audience to tracks from her brand new EP Tremble, Nicole Millar is definitely one you will want to make time to see before Troye takes to the stage in Australia.
Tickets are sure to sell like hotcakes for these highly-anticipated Australian dates. Don’t miss out and witness a true star demonstrate why he has everyone in the world talking.
