28-year old classic violinist Lindsey Stirling will tour Australia and New Zealand in 2015 performing in venues generally reserved for rock concerts.
Stirling was last in Australia in 2013 and her Auckland show in February will be her first time in New Zealand.
Lindsey’s debut album ‘Lindsey Stirling’ has been one of the biggest sellers of 2014 on the US classical chart and peaked at no 23 on the Billboard chart. Her new album ‘Shatter Me’ debuted at no 2 in the USA.
Lindsey was noticed after appearing on the 2010 edition of ‘America’s Got Talent’ where she was introduced as a ‘hip-hop’ violinist. She has described the experience as “humiliating” after both Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan told her she was “not good enough”.
Lindsey Stirling will tour for Live Nation.
