Run The Jewels, Mitski, Tove Stryke To Open For Lorde On Tour

Well, this sounds like a hell of a night out. Next year, Lorde will play a big North American tour behind Melodrama, one of 2017’s best albums. And she will have help. Lorde had already announced the dates, but now she’s announced her openers. At many of the shows on that tour, she will have both Run The Jewels and Mitski open for her. Will RTJ’s strident, martial, chaotic rap music translate at a pop show? Will Mitski’s sound be able to fill those huge spaces? Who knows? But we do know that we want to see that shit happen. Swedish pop singer Tove Stryke will also play some of those shows, and some of them will have an opening act yet to be announced. Check out the dates below.
