The second tour by the sensation that is Lana Del Rey has been announced. Supporting her third album, titled Ultraviolence, the tour is set to begin in May at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. Following opening night, the singer will head to Dallas on May 9th before making stops all across the country.
The tour is rather short with only 17 confirmed shows as of yet. The tour will head to Toronto and Montreal on June 3rd and 4th before heading back to the states on June 11th. The show will eventually come to a close on June 16, 2015 in West Palm Beach at the Cruzan Amphitheatre.
Many websites are stating that the initial 17 shows are just the first leg of the tour, but there has been no official statement made on this matter. While the tour seems rather short, many of the venues are huge, so fans will not have an issue getting tickets for this short, yet highly anticipated event.
Fans will rejoice as the one and only Courtney Love will be accompanying Del Rey on part of the tour. Starring as an opening act, Love will be in attendance for all shows between the dates of May 7th and May 22nd.
Controversial, Love and Del Rey will be a duo to watch. Courtney will be expected to play all of her favorites, including “Malibu,” “Celebrity Skin” and “Violent”.
Who will play the remaining shows with Lana Del Rey? No word has been given on who will be the opening act as of yet. Fans can expect a controversial, enigmatic opening act to be announced in the coming weeks.
Lana Del Rey will be the main act on the tour and is known for her unique musical style. The singer, just 29 years old, is known for being emotive and has a contralto vocal range. Sometimes sounding jazzy, the singer will have fans on their feet the entire time as she sings through an array of songs.
“Ultraviolence,” “Born to Die” and “Summertime Sadness” are expected to be on her set list. How many songs will be included? Looking at her October 18th show in Hollywood, California, the singer belted out 13 total songs.
The tour will be one of the hottest this summer season and will be a must-see for fans of Lana Del Rey. With a wild Courtney Love and the soulful Del Rey, it will be a tour filled with a myriad of sounds.
