Kicking off a series of dates in Milwaukee, America, the singer/songwriter stepped out in a piece from Al Sharqi's spring/summer 2018 collection.

Lorde opted for a pale lilac shantung silk coat - which she wore open - on a stage lit in purple. Not only did it add to the atmosphere, its pale colouring was also in perfect contrast to the Kiwi artist's dark hair.

The tour launched in Manchester, UK, in September 2017 and will run until July 20, when it finishes up in Indonesia. During that time Lorde will play in 16 countries including her native New Zealand.
