One of pop music's most exciting performers is set to make her Australian debut.

23-year-old singer-songwriter Gracie Abrams will be bringing The Good Riddance Tour down under in January. She has announced three all-ages headlining shows along the east coast, set to take place in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

Since springing onto the scene with her break-out single Mean It in 2019, Abrams has had a dizzying rise to stardom.

From drawing comparisons to A-listers like Billie Eilish, Lorde and Olivia Rodrigo to opening for Phoebe Bridgers and Taylor Swift on the North American leg of her mammoth Eras tour, Abrams has wasted no time in making a name for herself. In four short years, she’s already amassed a whopping 3.6 billion streams and 110 million views on YouTube.

In February of this year, the singer dropped her debut studio album, Good Riddance, to much critical acclaim. Produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner, the 12-track album featured the hit singles Difficult, Where Do We Go Now? and Amelie and was put up as Triple J’s feature album upon its release.

Known for consistently delivering shimmering, radio-friendly gems, Abrams has become an easy favourite for young pop fans. She has been praised for her raw songwriting vulnerability, heartwrenching lyricism and crystal-clear vocals.

As the daughter of filmmaker J. J. Abrams and producer Katie McGrath, Abrams is no stranger to the spotlight. Australian fans will have the chance to see her live on stage for the first time ever when she makes her way over in January.

Gracie Abrams tickets go on sale on Tuesday, August 22 at 11am local time, with a presale opening for Frontier members on August 18. To pick up yours, head here
