At the final gig last night, Lorde shared a cover of Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Run Away With Me’ in the middle of the set. The singer began the track while sitting on a revolving ladder that forms a central part of her current tour’s production.
The show also saw Lorde air ‘A World Alone’, which featured on her debut album ‘Pure Heroine’, for the first time since 2017. Watch footage of both songs below now.
The star’s tour will current with dates in Ireland and Europe, before returning to the UK at the end of the month for a performance at Glastonbury and a headline date at London’s Alexandra Palace.
Reviewing Lorde’s tour at a show in Minneapolis in April, NME dubbed it “instantly iconic”. “From the second the black curtain shrouding her artful stage production drops, it feels like we’ve been whisked off to another planet,” the five-star review added.
“It’s fitting that the set begins with ‘Leader Of A New Regime’, a song that imagines life in the future when we’ve destroyed the earth and had to flee to a distant sanctuary – the effervescent, colour-changing sun that lights the whole show and the rotating ladder that sometimes leads up to it feel both alien and warm; a fresh but safe bolthole to escape the turmoil of the world outside.”
