The two Hawke's Bay shows which Lorde had to postpone due to damage from Cyclone Gabrielle will now take place in April.

The 'Solar Power' star will play the Black Barn Vineyard dates on Thursday, April 20 and Friday, April 21.

Broods, Fazerdaze and Riiki Reid will support her on the dates which will be the final shows of the Reintroducing Solar Power tour.

The gigs were originally due to take place on Wednesday, March 1 and Thursday, March 2.

In an Instagram Story post on February 20, Lorde said postponing the shows at the time was the "right thing to do".

"Kia ora tātou. Over the past week, I've been following the ongoing devastation in Hawke's Bay. In line with advice from police, the venue, and our promoter, I think the right thing to do is to postpone our Hawke's Bay shows," she said.

"I would love to be there with you right now, but I can also read the room, and taking precious resources away from those who need them right now is not it."

Fans with tickets to the March 1 show at the same venue are now eligible for the April 20 gig. Those with a ticket to the show set for March 2 can attend on April 21.

Lorde had also been forced to change venues in Wellington due to bad weather, moving her opening shows at Days Bay in the Hutt Valley to the capital's TSB Arena in late February.

Limited tickets for both the Hawke's Bay shows are on sale now.
