Rising 16-year-old New Zealand singer Lorde (born Ella Yelich-O’Connor) headlined during the Decibel Festival at the Showbox at the Market in support of her debut album, Pure Heroine, which was released on September 30. “Royals,” the hit single, was recently #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. What a talented performer! I made the claim after her show that she’d never be back in Seattle at such a small venue. I proved myself right today when it was announced that she’d be back in town at the 17,450 seat KeyArena for the Deck The Hall Ball on December 3.
