Nova to bring Rita Ora to Red Room
Nova’s revival of its in-person Red Rooms is continuing, with Rita Ora set to take the stage in Sydney on Wednesday, March 17.
The concert series was, like most live events, disrupted last year by COVID-19. The radio network brought them back late last year with Guy Sebastian, Amy Shark, Jessica Mauboy and Ruel.
And next week Rita Ora, who has been in the country to perform as part of Sydney’s Mardi Gras celebrations and as a judge on the new iteration of The Voice, will perform at Warner Music Australia’s Sydney office.
She will be supported by Australian DJ duo, Kinder, and the event will be hosted by Nova’s national Drive hosts Tim Blackwell, Kate Ritchie and Joel Creasey.
NOVA Entertainment’s chief programming & marketing officer, Paul Jackson, said: “After a challenging year for artists, the industry and live music fans, we are delighted that the first Nova’s Red Room will feature an artist of the calibre of Rita Or. Nova’s Red Room was created to provide fans with money-can’t-buy experiences with their favourite artists, and this special performance by Rita, and the talented new Aussie duo Kinder, is the perfect way to kick off Nova’s first live gig for 2021.”
Dan Rosen, the recently installed president of Warner Music Australia, said it’s fantastic to see artists return to the stage in front of live audiences.
“I’m so excited for Warner Music Australia and Nova’s Red Room to partner together on this event and bring you two brilliant artists performing on stage at Warner Music HQ in Sydney. Rita Ora is a global superstar and we welcome her back to the country. We look forward to Rita’s performance in such an intimate setting, which will be a once in a life time experience for fans. This will be the first Nova’s Red Room for our local signed sister duo Kinder, and we can’t wait for the audience to fall in love with their infectious energy and upbeat songs,” he said.
Fans who want to attend the event can do so by listening to Kate, Tim & Joel and Smallzy’s Surgery on the Nova Network, as well as entering online.
