Lana Del Rey officially released her United States tour dates on Wednesday, the 27th of September, and her tour starter is in, you guessed it – Minneapolis. The “Blue Jeans” singer came out with an album this year titled Lust for Life and it featured popular artists like The Weeknd and Stevie Nicks on “Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems” that reached number one within days of its release.
Del Rey’s new mood, and change of rhythm, has sparked controversy between fans who swooned over the old melancholy and depressing songs in her albums Ultraviolence and Born to Die and are not feeling some of the new upbeat melodies in her new album. Fans are also disappointed that 5 out of 16 of the tracks on Lust for Life are all features and collaborations with more mainstream artists, which seems to be pointing to the conclusion that she did this for more recognition in the music industry. However, Del Rey has continued to deliver her beautifully haunting voice vocals in LFL , and touches on subjects such as: homelessness, death, love, war, and beauty.
Tickets are now on sale for the Lana Del Rey concert at Target Center, here in the Twin Cities, January 5th, with special guests Jhene Aiko and Kali Uchis. All ages are welcome and tickets start at 40$.
