British pop singer Rita Ora is set to perform at this year’s ARIA Awards, just days after the release of her upcoming album, Phoenix.

The 2018 ARIA Awards are set to feature a hefty dose of international talent, with British singer Rita Ora confirmed as one of this year’s amazing performers.

Performing at the award ceremony on November 28th, Ora’s appearance will occur just a handful of days after the release of her long-awaited second album, Phoenix, on November 23rd.

“We are thrilled to be able to welcome Rita Ora to this year’s ARIA Awards as a special guest performer,” explained Dan Rosen, ARIA Chief Executive. “She is an extremely talented artist and performer and one of the most exciting acts in the world right now.”

“I am so excited to be coming Down Under to your biggest night in music; the ARIA Awards 2018,” echoed Rita Ora in a video statement. “I’m planning a really special performance, I cannot wait to come.”


As it stands, Rita Ora has had quite a busy couple of years, with her latest album spawning four singles so far – with three of them charting within the ARIA top 20.

This announcement also comes just a matter of days after Rita Ora announced her first national tour of Australia – scheduled to take place in March of 2019.

This year’s ARIA Awards are set to take place at the Star Event Centre in Sydney, with the ceremony hosted by Keith Urban. This year’s nominees were announced early last month, and can be read below.
