Lana Del Rey cancels tour to the sound of a million gay hearts breaking
The undisputed queen of sad bangers, Lana Del Rey, has cancelled her entire UK and European tour due to “surprise illness”.
The tour was due to start tomorrow.
The queer icons first show was scheduled for tomorrow evening at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam.
Lana Del Rey’s UK dates included a massive show at the O2 arena in London on February 25, and then shows in Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham.
“Sorry to let everyone down so last minute but this illness has taken me by surprise and have totally lost my singing voice,” Lana Del Rey said.
“Dr has advised 4 weeks off for the moment. I hate to let everyone down but I need to get well.
The tour followed the release of her latest album, 2019’s ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell’, which received widespread gay acclaim upon release.
