Having arrived in Dunedin for her sell-out concert tonight, Kiwi pop princess Lorde has been tweeting the praises of the southernmost destination of her New Zealand tour.

The Grammy-winning teen rated the drive into town from Dunedin Airport as ''the prettiest I've ever experienced'', while southern culinary speciality the cheese roll came in for a mention as ''kinda great''.

Lorde plays Dunedin's Town Hall tonight after kicking off the tour with a performance in Christchurch on Monday night.

She plays Wellington on Friday night and Auckland on Saturday night.
