Tour Name: Lorde
Headliner: Majical Cloudz
Venue: LC Pavillion, Columbus Ohio
Why you should see this artist: At the young age of seventeen, Ella Marija Lani Yelich-
O’Connor, better known by her stage name Lorde, has attracted a great deal of attention with her second studio album Pure Heroin. The album’s popularity developed so quickly that it led to a huge tour across the states through 2014. The headliner a Canadian electronic-pop duo Majical Cloudz, gained unanimous approval from the crowd of anxious Lorde fans. They had the crowd well energized by the time Lorde took the stage. The lights went down and the crowd erupted in cheers, then with a flash of red light and fog the opening beat to Lorde’s Glory and Gore filled the amphitheater. The crowd sang along through the entire set, which consisted of the complete tracklist of the 17 year old artist’s Pure Heroin. A few of the songs were altered slightly and helped to showcase Lorde’s range of singing. Despite her youth and recent start, Lorde graced the audience with a quick inspirational monologue and expressed her immense gratitude to her fans. Overall she had great stage presence and her voice was just as outstanding live as it is on the record.
