Lana Del Rey Planning To Tour In Late 2012

5f74422c62232e7184655922192aa4fe Lana Del Rey Planning To Tour In Late 2012Lana Del Rey isn’t letting a thing like abysmal reviews of her debut US television appearance and the fact that even she knows that people “shouldn’t expect much from [her] show” stop her from continuing to perform live. The “Video Games” singer told MTV that she’s already prepping a tour, tentatively scheduled for October of this year. That gives her about 10 months to figure out what to do with her hands while singing.

“Sonically, I always knew exactly what I wanted,” Del Rey said of her debut album Born To Die (out January 31). “That’s really the only thing I do know. The rest of it was sort of up in the air. I’ve been a writer for a really long time, and a sort of bad composer, but a composer nonetheless. It was something I did alone for some time and then became a collaborative effort as I met better and better people.”

We think she’s just trying to be honest once again, but criticizing yourself isn’t the best tactic when practically everyone else on the Internet (including the entirety of Hipster Runoff The Lana Del Report) is more than willing to do that for you.

Del Rey apparently has confidence we haven’t seen yet, as she not only will play a live set at South By Southwest in March, but she’s prepping a tour in the Fall. “I’m capping every venue at 900 [capacity], because I don’t want to perform for more [people] than that,” Lana said. “So what I want to do is do three nights in New York, at like Irving Plaza, and then three nights at the El Rey in LA, and then, in between, do 15 cities, and cap it at 900 venues. And everybody [at her label, Interscope] is onboard, so that’s what we’re going to do.”

But will 900 people even buy tickets if she continues giving live performances like the one she gave on SNL? Hopefully between now and October, Lana can find a reason for people to expect something from her live show — other than awkward pacing.
