Lorde is one of the hottest properties in pop right now: a platinum-selling album, a multimillion-dollar publishing deal, a major Coachella set and the forthcoming soundtrack to the new "Hunger Games" movie.

And yet, her two-night stand at the Greek Theatre next week still has some quality seats available.

The teenage New Zealander is approaching the end of her album cycle for "Pure Heroine," and though singles such as "Royals" and "Team" are still ubiquitous on the radio, it appears she hasn't quite matched the sold-out demand for her Greek Theatre peer, Sam Smith.

Her Monday night show still has single seats available in the Terrace section. But the second night, Oct. 7, still has packages of up to four tickets available in the Greek's section C -- decent seats by any measure.

The ticket availability is kind of a surprise, given her recent pop domination. But then again, though "Pure Heroine" has sold millions, it's been a year since the album came out and Lorde still has yet to release more than a single from her "Hunger Games" effort.

A soldout two-night stand at the Greek would equal about 12,000 tickets. That's no small feat, but one that would seem to be well in reach of one of pop's brightest, Grammy-winning new voices.

To judge by her Coachella turn, she puts on a compelling, minimalist live show, and she does a few mean covers of her predecessors in sad synth-pop. Fans may want to take note and avail themselves of this opportunity to see Lorde up close, because right now the seat selection is unexpectedly good.
