Lorde has revealed that she will be the support act at Arcade Fire's gig at London's Earls Court this weekend. Which is alright, as support acts go.
The New Zealand star will join Owen Pallett and DJ sets from 2 Many DJs and Pulp's Steve Mackey at the Canadian band's huge London gig on Saturday 7 June, and announced her appearance on Twitter as she discussed her upcoming live shows. See below.
