After scheduling a few spot dates around her appearances at this year’s Coachella festival in April, Lana Del Rey has announced a full-blown North American tour, with the first of the new dates being in Grand Prairie, Texas, on April 23.
Del Rey broke the new on her Facebook page, adding that tickets to the freshly announced dates would go on sale at the end of this week (March 14 and15, depending on show date). Among the U.S. shows includes a stop at Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater on May 19.
The tour could be in support of the singer’s upcoming new album, Ultraviolence, which she intimated to an autograph-seeking fan would be available on May 1. Del Rey has also let it be known that among the collaborators on the new full-length include Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys with a tweet.
“It is absolutely gorgeous – darker then the first – so dark it’s almost unlistenable and wrong,” the “Video Games” chanteuse explained regarding the allegedly finished Ultraviolence during a recent Twitter Q&A. “But I love it.”
