Kansas City’s Arvest Bank at the Midland Theatre Welcomes Lorde This Friday
Thousands of fans with Lorde tickets will descend upon Kansas City’s Arvest Bank Theatre at the Midland this Friday when the 17-year-old New Zealander stops by as part of her first ever North American tour.
The two-time Grammy Award winner, who recently revealed that she turned down the offer of a support slot on Katy Perry’s forthcoming Prismatic world tour, kicked off her 20-date headlining trek at the Austin Music Hall earlier this month and will wind up at Phoenix’s Comerica Theatre on April 17 (TiqIQ get-in price $37/average price $110) before taking in the second weekend of Coachella on Apr 19 (3-day passes $450/$831) and a series of Australian shows.
Lorde tickets for her Mar 21 performance – currently the most expensive event at the historic venue this month – have continued to sell steadily since it was confirmed back in December and while 879 were up for grabs at TiqIQ on Mar 4, only 332 now remain.
Tickets for the show were available for as low as $75 on Mar 9 but rose to $89 a day later and have since remained within $3 of this price ever since. While the average price now stands at $142, 14% above the overall tour average of $125 and $11 cheaper than the show’s all-time high average price of $153 on Mar 15.
Those with Lorde tickets can look forward to hearing the entirety of Pure Heroine, which recently passed sales of one million, including the US number one, “Royals,” and its follow-up singles “Team,” “Tennis Court” and “Glory and Gore.” While recent shows have also featured tracks from her The Love Club E.P. (“Biting Down,” “Bravado”) and cover versions of Kanye West’s “Hold My Liquor,” Son Lux’s “Easy” and The Replacements’ “Swingin’ Party.”
