Commencing against a backdrop of arcing and intersecting white lines, the U.K. duo opened with "White Noise" flanked by Aluna Francis of AlunaGeorge.

The Lawrence brothers then warned their audience that further surprises were in store, and immediately made good on that guarantee by bringing out Lorde to perform "Magnets" to the delight of all assembled.


Interspersed with solo numbers like "When a Fire Starts to Burn" and "Holding On," the siblings also introduced a revolving door of featured guests, including Kwabs for "Willing and Able, Jillian Hervey for "Hour Glass" and Brendan Reilly for "Moving Mountains."
