UK number 1 hit-maker Rita Ora is set to play an exclusive one-off show at Auckland’s The Powerstation this March. Successes include UK number 1 smash hit, and certified summer anthem ‘Hot Right Now’. Following up with two more UK No1’s and NZ Top 10’s, including ‘How We Do (Party)’ which achieved Platinum status in NZ, ‘R.I.P. featuring Tinie Tempah, and current NZ radio hit ‘Radioactive’, it’s been an incredible two years for the UK’s fastest rising pop star.
Her debut album, Ora, personally signed by Jay-Z to his Roc Nation label, debuted at Number 1 in UK, and has established Rita as a major player. The critics agree...she won the MOBO (Music of Black Origin) award for Best Newcomer in 2012 and was nominated for two MTV Europe 2012 Awards and three Brit 2013 Awards.
Live, Rita has supported US superstar Drake and UK rock giants Coldplay on their European tour as well as playing at every major UK festival and event this summer. If that’s not enough, this young heavyweight has collaborated with a veritable who’s who of the music world, with names such as will.i.am, Chase & Status, Diplo, Switch and Tinie Tempah having queued up to work with the talented young songstress.
ZOWIE and her band will open up the show with their usual visual flair and the catchiest electro pop and synth beats this side of Gaga! She’s got a swag of NZ hit songs and a show that always turns heads. Indeed, Zowie has been invited onto some of the very biggest of stages –touring arenas supporting the likes of Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj whilst making festival appearances at Future Festival, RnV, CMJ New York, Big Day Out and La De Da. If you’ve not caught her yet, come early, she’s a cracker!
RUBY FROST will be performing two short DJ set’s – the first prior to Zowie and then warming up for Rita Ora. Her debut album ‘Volition’ charted at #4 in NZ mid-2012 spwaning several hit radio songs including ‘Water To Ice’ and summer anthem ‘Young’. Ruby is now one of the X Factor judges alongside All Saints singer Melanie Blatt, Daniel Beddingfield and Stan Walker. With a career that already includes winning songwriting awards and modeling for a major retail chain there is no doubt that Ruby Frost is on the verge of being one of the most recognizable and successful female artists in the country. She’s gonna smash it, just like her DJ set always does!
With tickets almost sold out we will see you on the night for what will be one of the hottest gigs of the year.
