Vroom Vroom, Charli XCX has just added more Australian shows

Time to grab the poppers, because Charli XCX has added two new dates to her 2023 Australian tour

Charli XCX has expanded her string of Australian appearances, slating two extra shows in the country for early next year. The pop star will first take to Brisbane’s the Tivoli on February 28, with an additional performance scheduled for the Northcote Theatre in Melbourne on March 2. Frontier Members can access tickets from next Monday (December 19), before the general public sale begins on December 20. Head here for tickets. 

Charli’s Australian headline shows coincide with her upcoming festival appearances. The singer — who released her fifth studio album, Crash, earlier this year — will perform as part of the line-up of music festival For The Love, which tours from Woolong to Perth in late February. She joins Duke Dumont, Snakehips and Cosmo’s Midnight on the bill for that festival. Charli will elsewhere serve as the headlining act at Sydney WorldPride 2023

There, she’ll perform at the Pride event’s opening concert, Live and Proud, taking to the stage alongside fellow musicians Kylie Minogue and Jessica Mauboy. WorldPride is expected to be the biggest event in Sydney since the 2000 Olympics, with 500,000 international travellers tipped to head Down Under for the celebrations. Big Freedia, Kelly Rowland and MUNA will also perform across the 17-day program. 

Charli’s Australian appearances form part of her broader world tour in support of Crash, which featured on Happy Mag‘s 10 best albums of 2022 list. Before that, the singer’s fourth album, how i’m feeling now, arrived in 2020. Earlier this year, Charli teamed up with Tiesto for the standalone single Hot In It. Elsewhere in 2022, it was revealed that the pop star was collaborating with production company A24 to create Overcompensating, an upcoming television series for which she’ll also produce the soundtrack and music.
