Lana del Rey Tour Canceled In Wake of Panned SNL Performance?


“Lana del Rey’s tour has been postponed in the wake of the chanteuse’s disastrous ‘SNL’ appearance last month,” reports the New York Post.

According to the paper, “The ‘Video Games’ singer’s gigs were to coincide with the release of her album, ‘Born To Die’ — but the plug was pulled after her tour managers, booking agents and label heads at Interscope powwowed following her bizarre, listless appearance on ‘SNL.’”

A source tells the Post, “She was very upset” about canceling the tour, but notes that Del Rey and her manager “figure the extra time gives them more distance from ‘SNL.’”

Another insider says Interscope determined the singer “wasn’t ready to tour, and that live shows would hurt record sales.”

The paper says Del Rey’s 30-date U.S. tour was slated to kick off “as soon as March.”

That all would be big news – if it were true.

Del Rey NEVER had a tour scheduled for the Spring in the first place.

“There has never been a Spring tour announced or cancelled,” her rep tells Billboard.

In actuality, as previously announced, the singer plans to hit the road in October.

And as for claims that Del Rey is backing away from live performances altogether after “SNL,” the star is still scheduled to play in California this week.
