Auckland – New Zealand pop singer Lorde (“Royals”) has postponed two concerts in the Hawke’s Bay area due to the severe devastation caused by Hurricane Gabriel in her home country. The North Island wine region is particularly affected by the storm’s aftermath. At least 11 people were killed by the tropical storm, and the damage was severe. “I am so sorry you have to go through this,” the New Zealand Herald newspaper reported on Monday, quoting a statement from his 26-year-old owner.

Lorde confirmed that it was not the right time for the concerts planned for March 1 and 2. “For the past week I have been following the devastation in Hawke’s Bay. In keeping with the advice of the police, our site and our promoters, I think it is the right thing to do to postpone our shows in Hawke’s Bay.” The New Zealand star has made it clear that she wants to make up for the shows at a later date.

Lorde, whose real name is Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor, made her international breakthrough in 2013 at the age of 17. She won two Grammy Awards in 2014 for her album ‘Pure Heroine’ and the single ‘Royals’. Her third studio album, Solar Energy, will be released in 2021.
