Lorde performs in front of a massive crowd at Lollapalooza 2014

On August 1 Grammy Award winning artist Lorde performed live at the 2014 Lollapalooza Music Festival. There was no fancy stage production during the set, it was just the singer belting out songs in front of a massive crowd from her debut studio album Pure Heroine.

For Lorde's Lollapalooza 2014 set the singer wore black overalls over a black Calvin Klein sports bra. She also had on her signature purple lipstick and was accompanied on stage by a keyboard player and drummer. The set kicked off a couple of minutes early and once Lorde walked on stage she went right into her first song "Glory and Gore".

During her entire set Lorde took the time to talk with the crowd. She was friendly, seemed grateful and was a bit amazed so many people came to watch her Lollapalooza performance. At one point she even sat down on the edge of the stage and started pointing out that she could even see fans faces that were far away.

Lorde's just under an hour long Lollapalooza 2014 set consisted of her singing "Tennis Court," "Buzzcut Season" and the Son Lux song "Easy". Her two biggest singles "Royals" and "Team" came towards the end of her set. Both songs had slight musical re-arrangements and she changed up the lyrics a bit from the studio version.

Once "Team" ended a small portion of the massive crowd began to depart the stage, but the ones who stuck around got to hear her last song, "A World Alone." The last song began right as the sun began to set, which was the perfect ending to an enjoyable, and entertaining set.

The only flaw in her set was when the singer's earpiece stopped working and a tech guy kept having to come on stage to fix it. She made light of the situation and as he was switching out her earpiece Lorde jokingly said, "This is my back-up dancer".
