And as the clock struck midnight, Lorde had delivered.

Today’s the day everyone’s been waiting for: The 20-year-old New Zealand alt-pop superstar has released her sophomore album Melodrama — hear singles “Green Light”, “Liability”, “Perfect Places”, and “Sober” — and accompanied the new record news with another added treat in the shape of a 30-date North American tour.

The run kicks off March 1, 2018 in Milwaukee and wraps April 15 in Nashville. Pertinent to us here in New England are two dates in particular: April 3 at Boston’s TD Garden and a April 7 date at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. Pre-sale starts June 20 at 10 a.m., and the general on-sale begins June 23 at 10 a.m.

We believe this is Lorde’s first Massachusetts date since the heavens poured down on her triumphant set at Boston Calling Music Festival back in September 2014.

It’s been too long.
