Lana Del Rey has confirmed a Los Angeles date at the Shrine Expo Hall on Friday, May 30th—expanding her 2014 U.S. Tour. The date goes on-sale Friday, April 25th at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster.
The shows that recently went on sale in Las Vegas, Phoenix, and San Francisco sold out immediately.
Las Vegas Promoter Huston Powell of C3 Presents said, “Lana Del Rey is the fastest selling show in the 3+ years the Cosmopolitan has been open.”
And in Phoenix, President of Southwest Music at Live Nation Terry Burke reported, “I can count on one hand how many artists have sold out in one day at Comerica Theatre, and none of them did it faster than Lana Del Rey.”
Lana’s remake of the Disney classic “Once Upon a Dream,” which will be on the soundtrack of Disney’s upcoming film Maleficent starring Angelina Jolie (in theaters May 30), debuted in a trailer that aired during this year’s Grammy Awards and was featured prominently throughout the Academy Awards.

Describing her music as Hollywood Sadcore, Lana Del Rey is truly one-of-a-kind. On 2012’s debut album Born to Die, Del Rey’s songs came out of a mixture of her love of David Lynch, Black and White 50’s movies, Coney Island, Hip-Hop and heartbreak. She has since gone on to win 2 BRIT awards, a Grammy and an Ivor Novello Award and has sold over 6 million albums worldwide.
At the Grammys on January 26, the Cedric Gervais remix of Lana’s “Summertime Sadness” won for Best Remixed Recording. Lana’s Paradise (Interscope/Polydor) was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album and her original song “Young and Beautiful” for Baz Lurhmann’s The Great Gatsby soundtrack was nominated for Best Song Written for Visual Media.
2013 was an incredible year for Lana Del Rey. Highlights include the release of her platinum-certified original song “Young and Beautiful,” her Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 hit “Summertime Sadness (Lana Del Rey Vs. Cedric Gervais Remix),” her “transcendent” (LA Times) 30-minute short film Tropico directed by Anthony Mandler, a sold-out headlining European tour, and a “triumphant” (Billboard) performance at Lollapalooza.
Del Rey is currently putting the finishing touches on her new album Ultraviolence and is in the middle of her sold-out U.S. headline tour.
