NATASJA DE VRIES
Tonight saw New Zealand megastar Lorde take her captivating live show to a sold-out 013 in the heart of Tilburg. All 3,000 tickets for the night were snapped up in record time, which shouldn’t come as much of a surprise when you consider the songstress’ highly relatable songwriting, bold visual identity and top-notch live show. New album Melodrama, the follow-up to her 2014 debut, has enabled Lorde to elevate herself onto a whole new level; one which seems hard to attain for many of her contemporaries. RnB vocalist Khalid joined her on the night, and Natasja de Vries went down to capture every key moment.
