Lorde Announces North American Tour for the Fall
By Scott T. Sterling
After a rapturously received set at this year’s Coachella festival, Lorde has announced a string of North American tour dates for this fall.
Already set to perform at Lollapalooza on Aug. 1 and Montreal’s Osheaga Music Festival on Aug. 3, the New Zealand pop star kicks off headlining dates in Philadelphia on Sept. 5, followed by a slot at the Boston Calling fest the following day.
Lorde’s tour schedule finds her in New York for three shows, including a two-night stand at the United Palace Theater Sept. 15-16.
At press time, the tour is set to wrap up with an appearance at this year’s Austin City Limits festival on Oct. 12.
Lorde’s supporting artist on the N. American leg of the tour is experimental electronic act, Majical Cloudz, which the singer herself coined “an intensely emotional and raw treat” on her Twitter page.
“For those of you who saw me first time, this is gonna be something different. I can’t wait to show you what I got planned,” she added.
Also on the “Royals” singer’s itinerary include stops in Australia to make up for shows she had to miss because of an illness.
