DENVER — Two years after the release of her debut album about suburban adolescence entitled Pure Heroine, New Zealand singer/songwriter Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor, 21, who goes by the stage name Lorde, released her much anticipated second album, Melodrama.

Soon after the release of Melodrama, the electro and art pop  Grammy winner, set off on a world tour in order to share the musically religious experience with all walks of human life. The fourth stop on the North American Tour being Denver.

Opening artists for the North American Melodrama Tour consisted of Swedish pop singer Tove Styrke and Hip hop duo Run the Jewels. After the hype-up from the opening acts, Lorde bestowed her presence to Denver with Sober.

The crowd screamed in excitement as she strut the stage in a sparkly black net bodysuit. Dancers cascaded the neon lit stage throughout the show and entered a Plexiglas cage as is transcended above the stage for the main visual experience.

Lorde performed every song from Melodrama and explained her lyrical inspiration before performing ballads Writer in the Dark and Liability.

“I was a writer before anyone met me, and I’ll be a writer after they leave,” said Lorde. She explained her first taste of heartbreak and the catharsis of expressing that heartbreak through writing Melodrama.

Lorde left the audience in a musical ecstasy as she concluded the show with confetti stars and a performance of her hit singles, Green Light and Pure Heroine’s, Team.

The North American Melodrama Tour was an incredible five-star concert experience. Lorde sincerely blessed the world with the birth of Melodrama, and much is yet to be anticipated from this lyrical genius in years to come.
