Lorde to make special appearance at You Are Us/Aroha Nui show for Christchurch terror victims

Lorde will make a special appearance at the Christchurch You Are Us/Aroha Nui show to raise funds for the victims of the terror attacks on two Christchurch mosques.

The Exponents have also been added to the line-up.

Earlier this week, it was announced that many of Aotearoa's biggest musical acts would come together to perform two unprecedented shows - one in Auckland and one in Christchurch in April.

The 'Green Light' hitmaker has kept a low profile since she finished touring her album Melodrama last year, but will be returning to the stage alongside Six60, Dave Dobbyn, Stan Walker, Shihad and many more for the charity gig.

All proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Our People, Our City fund set up to help those affected by the shootings that left 50 dead and 50 more injured.

The full line-up is as follows:

  • Anika Moa
  • Bailey Wiley
  • Bene
  • Bic Runga
  • Boh Runga
  • Chaii
  • Christchurch Combined Choir
  • Dave Dobbyn
  • Fat Freddy's Drop
  • Hollie Smith
  • Illbaz
  • Lorde
  • Marlon Williams
  • Melodownz
  • Mitch James
  • Shapshifter
  • Shihad
  • Six60
  • Stan Walker
  • Seth Haapu
  • Teeks
  • The Adults
  • The Exponents

The You Are Us/Aroha Nui concerts will be hosted by Mike King, and are set to take place at Auckland's Spark Arena on Saturday April 13 and Christchurch Stadium on Wednesday April 17.

Tickets to the Auckland concert go on sale at lunchtime today, while the Christchurch tickets go on sale at 4pm tomorrow.
