Lana Del Rey Adds Dates To Fast-Selling U.S. Tour
Lana Del Rey has confirmed 16 new dates, expanding her 2014 U.S. tour that includes Coachella. All dates go on-sale Friday, March 14, except Montreal which goes on-sale March 15. More dates will soon be announced.
The shows that recently went on sale in Las Vegas, Phoenix, and San Francisco sold out immediately. Las Vegas Promoter Huston Powell of C3 Presents said, "Lana Del Rey is the fastest selling show in the 3+ years the Cosmopolitan has been open." And in Phoenix, President of Southwest Music at Live Nation Terry Burke reported, "I can count on one hand how many artists have sold out in one day at Comerica Theatre, and none of them did it faster than Lana Del Rey."
Lana’s remake of the Disney classic "Once Upon a Dream,” which will be on the soundtrack of Disney's upcoming film 'Maleficent' starring Angelina Jolie (in theaters May 30), debuted in a trailer that aired during this year’s Grammy Awards and was featured prominently throughout the Academy Awards. Preview "Once Upon a Dream" here:
At the Grammys on January 26, the Cedric Gervais remix of Lana’s “Summertime Sadness” won for Best Remixed Recording. Lana’s ‘Paradise’ (Interscope/Polydor) was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album and her original song "Young and Beautiful" for Baz Lurhmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ soundtrack was nominated for Best Song Written for Visual Media.
Del Rey is currently putting the finishing touches on her new album 'ULTRAVIOLENCE' - the follow-up the certified PLATINUM 'Born To Die' (Interscope/Polydor).
2013 was an incredible year for Lana. Highlights include the release of her PLATINUM-certified original song "Young and Beautiful,” her Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 hit “Summertime Sadness (Lana Del Rey Vs. Cedric Gervais Remix)," her “transcendent” (LA Times) 30-minute short film 'Tropico' directed by Anthony Mandler, a sold-out headlining European tour, and a "triumphant" (Billboard) performance at Lollapalooza. Lana was also featured on the cover of NYLON's November issue, which called her an “American icon.”
