Lorde fans were already sent into a frenzy when the “Green Light” singer announced her Melodrama world tour, which will start out on March 1 of next year. Her fans will have even more reasons to celebrate now, as rap power duo Run The Jewels, indie-pop singer-songwriter Mitski and Tove Styrke have been revealed to be the support acts on the 2018 arena run.
Announced on Oct. 4,, the addition the three artists will certainly make her 2018 spring run one of the most anticipated tours of 2018. Fresh off the June 16 release of Melodrama, Lorde was a big name at many of the biggest U.S. pop festivals throughout the summer, including appearances at Coachella and Bonnaroo. Run The Jewels were also a festival favorite, having spent most of the year on tour in support of their own new album, Run the Jewels 3, which arrived around the holidays last winter. Mitski may not be as big of a name in the world of mainstream music, but the New York artist has built her reputation through the indie circuit and will now be playing some of the country’s biggest concert arenas.
According to the announcement. Tove Styrke will join Lorde starting with the tour’s opening night at Milwaukee’s BMO Harris Bradley Center on March 1, and will stay on as support until March 23 in St. Paul, Minn. Run The Jewels will also be on the bill starting March 1, but take a break following a March 13 show in Oakland. They rejoin the tour on March 24 in Lincoln, Neb. along with Mitski, and the two will remain Lorde’s musical companions throughout the rest of the spring before wrapping on April 15. The only exception will come on April 11 in Tampa, Fla., where only Mitski will be on as support.
Lorde is currently touring across Europe and the U.K. throughout the fall, and will head home to her native New Zealand and Australia to close out her year with scheduled performances throughout November.
