“The Flamboyant Tour: Part II”
Due to overwhelming demand a second and final Melbourne date has been added to DORIAN ELECTRA’s (pronouns: they/them/theirs) debut Australian tour. The ‘musical genius’ and rising pop star will make their first ever Australian performance at The Gasometer Hotel in Melbourne on Thursday, February 27 before playing again to a SOLD-OUT crowd at The Worker’s Club on Friday, February 28.
Dorian Electra makes music that defies gender norms. In the past year, their work has gained a queer cult following and a rapidly growing global fanbase, as well as critical praise from Pitchfork, Billboard, Paper Magazine, The Fader, Gay Times, The Guardian, and more. Each one of Electra’s high-concept singles ("Career Boy,” "Man To Man,” “Flamboyant”, “Daddy Like,” and most recently, “Adam & Steve”) has been accompanied by a hyper-stylized music video. Videos like “Flamboyant” have garnered more than one million views, and help build a bigger world around each song than the music alone.
"Flamboyant" was named Paper Magazine's #5 top album of the year, and named #10 album of the year by music critic Anthony Fantano (The Needle Drop) as well naming "Career Boy" the #2 song of 2019. The album also made the top albums of 2019 from Vice, Dazed, The Guardian and more.
Electra has collaborated and toured with pop visionary Charli XCX and Russian group Pussy Riot as well as played major pride festivals across the US. In 2019, Dorian Electra released their debut full-length album “Flamboyant”, an unapologetically over-the top work of experimental pop with a heavy-metal, baroque twist, supported by their first-ever sold out headlining tour.
After recently teasing Australian tour dates in an Instagram post announcing The Flamboyant Tour: Part II, Dorian Electra will finally bring their acclaimed album “Flamboyant” and eccentric, high-energy live show ‘down under’ this February. Don’t miss out!
