Lorde dropped two surprises yesterday: A gig with $29 tickets at a cosy California bar, and a performance of a new song on her upcoming album, Melodrama.
The song, Sober, was the seventh song Lorde performed at the gig at Pappy & Harriet's in Pioneertown, entertainment site Pitchfork reports.
The Kiwi star tweeted yesterday: "$20 tickets because i'm 20 and because i love you. let's get raucous before coachella on sunday night AHH,"
She sold tickets out for the event in under a minute, the promoter said.
The gig was also her first live concert since 2014.
Lorde's new album Melodrama will be released in New Zealand on June 16.
She will perform at the Coachella music festival in California, which kicks off tomorrow.
