The 'Born To Die' singer allegedly pulls 30 date tour of the United States
Lana Del Rey has apparently scrapped plans to tour later in the year.
The New York Post – via Rolling Stone – has reported that her US record label Interscope, as well as her management company and booking agents have all decided she is not ready to hit to road for a full tour.
The decision apparently came in the wake of her ill-received performance on Saturday Night Live, which was recently defended by Saturday Night Live cast member and Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig, who donned a wig to imitate the singer on the show. Scroll down to see the clip.
The New York Post wrote of the decision to put off plans for a 30-date tour of the United States: “They [Del Rey’s management] figure it allows time for her to clear her head, then go back to selling tickets. More importantly, they figure, the extra time gives them more distance from SNL.”
Lana Del Rey will play an instore show at Los Angeles’ Amoeba Records this evening (PST). Check back on NME.COM to read a report from the show.
Lana Del Rey‘s debut album ‘Born To Die’ went straight to the top of Official UK Album Chart on Sunday. The album sold more than 117,000 copies in a week, making the debut the fastest-selling album of 2012 so far. The album also outsold the rest of the Top Five combined.
