Maha headliner to open for Lourde

On Wednesday, Lorde went on Twitter and announced that her upcoming North American tour, which includes a March 24 date at Pinnacle Bank Arena, would basically be an entire music festival now.

The show, which already promised to feature the New Zealand-born pop star/songwriter/happy dancer performing hits from “Pure Heroine” and “Melodrama” beneath a universe of neon lights, now includes one of the country’s biggest rap groups and a “blossoming indie-rock star,” as described in a New Yorker piece that highlighted her efforts to stretch the genre.

Run the Jewels, which throttled this summer’s Maha Music Festival crowd in Omaha with its headlining set, will join Lorde in Lincoln.

Big shout out to @Lorde for having us along on her North America Dance Tour!” the group announced on Twitter Oct. 4, five days after releasing the highly dance-able single, “Mean Demeanor,” which shows up on a soccer video game, “EA Sports FIFA ‘18.”

They’ll be joined by New York-based singer-songwriter Mitski, whose latest album, “Puberty 2,” drew a Best New Music rating on Pitchfork.
