Run the Jewels to open Lorde’s North American tour

on October 04, 2017, 10:35am

Lorde’s early 2018 North American tour in support of Melodrama was already something to look forward to, and now there’s even more reason to be excited. The New Zealand pop auteur has recruited some pretty impressive acts, albeit left-field choices to open the tour, namely: hip-hop behemoths Run the Jewels and symphonic singer-songwriter Mitski.

Like Lorde, both RTJ and Mitski delivered excellent releases within the last year or so. El-P and Killer Mike dropped RTJ3 on Christmas Eve 2016 and Mitski put out Puberty 2 last summer.

Check out Lorde’s full tour schedule — which also includes shows in Europe, Australia, and her native New Zealand — below.
