Lorde sets North American leg of ‘Melodrama’ world tour

Fresh off the release of ‘Melodrama’, Lorde has announced a 2018 North American tour in support of her new album.

The ‘Melodrama’ world tour comes to America starting from March 1 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The trek will visit 30 arenas in the US and Canada before concluding April 15 in Nashville.

The tour’s “special guest” opening act will be announced soon. Tickets for the North American leg go on sale from Friday. Check out Lorde’s site for full on-sale information.

The ‘Melodrama’ world tour kicks off this September with a European tour before Lorde returns to her native New Zealand for seven gigs in that country. From there, the tour heads to Australia before setting course to North America next year.

Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor, better known by her stage name Lorde, is a New Zealand singer-songwriter and record producer. Born in Takapuna and raised in Devonport, Auckland, she became interested in performing as a child. In her early teens, she signed with Universal Music Group and was later paired with songwriter and record producer Joel Little, who has co-written and produced most of Lorde’s works. Her first major release, The Love Club EP, was released commercially in March 2013. The EP reached number two on the national record charts in both New Zealand and Australia.
