GRAMMY Award-winning multiplatinum artist Lorde launched her long-awaited tour on March 1, and on Wednesday, April 4, she will make a stop at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center with special guests Run the Jewels and Mitski.

Goth-pop star Lorde became an international crossover hit in 2013 with her debut studio album Pure Heroine. The album’s debut single Royals soared to no. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 100 — making her the youngest pop star to achieve this feat since 1987 — and won two Grammys. Since then, she has been heating up festival stages all season with acclaimed performances at Coachella, Governors Ball and most recently, Bonnaroo.

In 2017, Lorde released her sophomore album Melodrama to widespread critical acclaim, earning a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year. And she is now taking her newest album on the road.

Killer Mike and El-P ak Run The Jewels have founded their musical alliance on raw, forward-thinking hip-hop, garnering limitless critical accolades. The hip-hop super duo will be heating up the stage with their 2017 release of the Run The Jewels 3.

Alt-rock songwriter Mitski will open the night with her well-known bold soundtrack of lo-fi guitar anthems paired with lyrical realism. The New York-based artist first received national and international attention with her self-released debu  LUSH in 2012 and has since then released three more critically acclaimed albums: Retired from Sad, New Career in Business, Bury Me at Makeout Creek and her fourth studio album Puberty 2.

Fans know what to expect from Lorde’s Melodrama tour: A beautifully strange, magical goth-pop world infused with raw hip-hop sounds – and it’s going to be epic.
