Kira Puru Melbourne Show Review

Kira Puru delivered the Melbourne leg of her Australia tour last night at The Corner Hotel in Richmond. 


A loyal following of Melbournites braved the cold for a night out while Puru, (an imposing presence on stage) tore the roof off the iconic Richmond venue with dazzling vocals and a confidant showmanship you'd usually expect from more established names.  


We were instantly onside after she appeared onstage in a cloud of purple smoke and announced: 


"Most of my songs are about sex..."


Piru delivered a mix of her familiar Triple J hits and some new material which was well received. In particular, her new power ballad "Bury Me Here on the Dance Floor", her tribute to the queer community that she found comfort in when she was young, was a touching gift. Another of her new tracks "Why Don't We Get Along" has an awesome trudging momentum to it.  It was impossible not to dance.


Despite recovering from a cold, she powered through and didn't disappoint with her highly anticipated renditions of  "Tension" and closed out the set with "Molotov." The crowd would never have known if she hadn't said!


Following the release of her new single, Everything Is Better Without You,  Puru is touring nationally in her biggest headline tour to date. She is joined on the road by special guest Kinder in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Canberra.  


A night at a Kira Puru show is a damn good time.  She's honest, silly and pretty dirty which is way too much fun.
