Rupi Kaur Tickets
Rupi Kaur TicketsIf you're a fan of poetry or the written or spoken word, you'll have a hard time finding a more powerful experience than a Rupi Kaur live show. Her poetry is simple and powerful, covering themes like heartbreak, womanhood, loss, identity, loneliness and love. In the volumes she's published, her verses are accompanied by line drawings that add to the message with their crude delicacy. A performance by Rupi Kaur in concert is an evening you'll not soon forget.
From Open Mics to TheatersRupi Kaur didn't take a traditional route to poetry stardom; though it may be that there is no traditional route to poetry stardom. Her career began as a grassroots affair, with Rupi performing at open mic nights and self-publishing her first book of poetry, Milk and Honey. Since she self-published it, Milk and Honey was picked up by a major publishing house and has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide. She was among the first and most successful of the InstaPoets, poets who grew famous by posting their work on Instagram. She has 3.8 million followers on Instagram, and her second book, The Sun and Her Flowers, was met with acclaim by fans and critics alike. In a time when the world seems to have little regard for poetry, Rupi Kaur is bringing attention to the art form.

What writers inspired Rupi Kaur?Rupi identifies herself as the daughter of Sikh immigrants and is still quite tied to her South Asian heritage.

As far as feminist poets she enjoys, Kaur lists Sharon Olds first, and then Jhumpa Lahiri, Hera Lindsay Bird, Ocean Vuong, Alex Elle, Andrea Gibson, Sarah Kay, Alice Walker, Junot Diaz, Sylvia Plath, Elvira Sastre and Joan Didion.
Is Rupi Kaur's poetry autobiographical?The poet Rupi Kaur has said that much of her poetry comes from her day to day experiences, but that it is not 100% about her.

She considers it a privilege to have the ability to put the life experiences and emotions of herself and others into poetry.
What is it like at a Rupi Kaur live performance?When Rupi Kaur performed in 2018 on the main stage at her old high school, there were 800 people in the audience to hear her.
