Multi-Platinum alt-pop phenomenon Melanie Martinez has announced the Australian/New Zealand leg of her blockbuster PORTALS Tour — coming to Aware Super Theatre on Tuesday, 30 January 2024!
The PORTALS Tour – which will see Martinez exclusively performing as the otherworldly new creature rebirth of her alter ego “Cry Baby” – is Melanie’s highest charting debut on the Billboard 200 upon its release earlier in 2023, arriving at #2 with 142,000 equivalent album units earned in its first week.
An instant global sensation, the album proved Martinez’s first #1 album debut in Australia, also landing at #1 in New Zealand, #2 in the UK, #3 in Canada and Ireland, and top 10 chart placements in Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, and Spain.
PORTALS includes the hit singles, “VOID” and “DEATH,” both of which made history as Martinez’s first original songs to debut on the Billboard “Hot 100.” “DEATH” is joined by a cinematic companion video – directed, conceived, and costume designed by Martinez herself – which trended #1 on YouTube’s Trending “Top Music Videos” chart and now boasts over 23M official views. The track and its compelling companion visual earned praise from the likes of Billboard, which raved, “The avant-garde pop auteur creates bold, expansive worlds with each project…While the dramatic five-minute track can be connected to her artistic reawakening, the kinetic drums and electronic elements will also make listeners feel reborn, too.”
