Frontier Touring are thrilled to confirm a massive tour for Australia’s very own global pop sensation Troye Sivan, performing across Australia and New Zealand this July and August. Having only previously played headline shows in Sydney and Perth, this tour marks Troye’s first headline performances in most Australian cities and debut performances in New Zealand!

Over the past two years, Troye Sivan has cemented himself as an international superstar and a force to be reckoned with. From his humble beginnings in suburban Perth, Sivan quickly evolved into one of the most celebrated YouTubers, where his channel has gathered four million subscribers and over 241 million views. Following the announcement of Troye’s iTunes chart topping release TRXYE (2014), pre-orders sky rocketed the EP to #1 in 66 countries.

Following suit, the announcement of 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 topped the ARIA Album Chart and peaked at # 5 in both the USA and UK.

Sivan’s highly anticipated and critically acclaimed debut album Blue Neighbourhood (out now via EMI Music Australia) features smash hit singles ‘Youth’, ‘Wild’, ‘Fools’ and current single at radio, ‘Talk Me Down’. Blue Neighbourhood was recently certified gold in Australia and peaked 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 collaborators like 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

So far, 2016 has been a whirlwind for the worldwide phenomenon. In just a few short months, Sivan has taken 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 graced the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine Australia – a huge feat for the 20 year old Perth native.

The world is fascinated by Troye Sivan’s message of self-love and acceptance found in the lyrics of his songs, interviews and self-produced YouTube videos. 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 ‘YOUTH’ 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 sat down with James Cordon for what was endearing and unmissable first ever interview on a talk show.

Tickets are sure to fly out the door for these highly-anticipated Australian and New Zealand dates. If the two sold out shows in Perth and Sydney are anything to go by, these shows are a unique chance to see and hear a true star demonstrate why he has everyone in the world talking. Don’t miss out!
