Lana Del Rey is hitting the road this summer to bring her sad songs to stadiums across America, and she’s bringing along with her a “very, very special guest” (that’s two verys, according to the press release) — Courtney Love.
Del Rey will be touring in support of her sophomore album Ultraviolence while Love, the frontwoman of Hole, may be performing songs off her long-awaited next solo album, which is expected to surface sometime in 2015.
The combination of Del Rey and Love — two divas of simmering dysfunction and undeniable talent— should make for a memorable, albeit brief, tour: they have just eight joint tour dates planned so far. Hopefully Love will join Del Rey for a few bars of “Money Power Glory,” and Del Rey can whisper seductively through “Celebrity Skin.”
One can only hope that Love’s daughter — Frances Bean Cobain — will be back stage hollering at both women to go on. Last year Cobain staged a Twitter intervention for the Born to Die singer, reminding her that dying young is nothing to romanticize.
