Multi-Platinum alt-pop phenomenon Melanie Martinez has announced one NZ date on her PORTALS Tour. January 28, 2024 at Spark Arena, in Auckland,
The PORTALS Tour celebrates the recent arrival of Martinez’s blockbuster new album, PORTALS, available now in an expanded deluxe digital edition featuring three additional new tracks HERE. The album became Melanie’s highest charting debut on the Billboard 200 upon its release earlier this year, arriving at #2 with 142,000 equivalent album units earned in its first week – Martinez’s third consecutive Billboard 200 Top 10 album debut, and the biggest first week for any solo female artist in 2023 so far.
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 song was first teased with a series of eerie clips revealing the rebirth of Martinez’s character “Cry Baby,” quickly sparking a frenzy of theories and garnering over 115M views across all socials. 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.”
