Lana Del Rey postponesAustralian tour

Is Lana Del Rey going into lock down? The US singer who has been under intense scrutiny from music media since giving a flat performance on Saturday Night Live last month has postponed her forthcoming Australian promo tour.

While the singer has promised that “more extensive dates will be announced soon”, the news comes only hours after the New York Post reported that the singer’s management has cancelled all touring plans for the foreseeable future.

The hate-swarm that ensued following Del Rey’s performance is unlike anything the music world has seen in sometime, unless the panning of Rebecca Black’s Friday is comparable. Amidst the cries for Del Rey’s blood, Liz Phair published a piece for the Wall Street Journal this week in which she commented on this modern day ‘Witch Hunt’: “Lana Del Rey is exactly what I was hoping to inspire when I took on the male rock establishment almost twenty years ago.”

If you purchased your ticket online or over the phone through moshtix your ticket will be automatically refunded back. If you purchased your ticket from a moshtix retail outlet you will need to return to the outlet with your ticket to receive your refund.

Stay tuned to FasterLouder for updates on the tour.

I feel bad for those who had tickets.

Assuming that SNL bomb was a one off, those intimate venues would have been great and now you won't get the chance.

i read she did one on letterman which was amazing and basically silenced the critics

In all seriousness though, she has been getting some really sexist shit thrown at her of late. She is a fucking talentless puppet but nobody deserves the treatment she's been getting.

Hopefully she comes back sooner rather than later and her fans can enjoy whatever they find in her music in peace.

Can some one sum up in 25 words or less what the deal is with Lana Del Rey and why everyone loves/hates her and why she's getting so much media attention.

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 8th Feb, 2012

I still think the song Born To Die is alright.

The four or five other tracks I head were coma inducing. I watched her BBC live lounge performance and she is better than SNL. Not great though.

A spokesman for Ms Del Rey said " Lana is now much too famous to play the venues we had originally intended, and we want to take some time out to see just how far we can push things at the moment. She's very good looking, you know?"

I wonder if all this hate is being fuelled from the inside by her own pr team to get her even more publicity. #conspiracytheory

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 8th Feb, 2012

The conspiricy is that if you play her record backwards it's full of racial slurs and criticisms of the popular NBC program Community.

That explains why hate her but don't know why.

Aidan1234567

Aidan1234567 said on the 8th Feb, 2012

That's just being shit cancelling shows because "she's too popular"

Announce a few larger shows but don't fuck around with the people who've bought tickets expecting an intimate show, anyway isn't she the one who said she'll never play to more than 900 people?

i would prefer to see lady gaga, yeah, she is pretty average, but at least she has some innovation there. also, way more hot chicks at a lady gaga concert.

she is talentless in my opinion, i doubt she wrote her own vocals let alone the music. here's the thing, she, or her management, rather, had a great strategy when it came to her image - now it's the hipster/ boho boom and they've managed to polish her into something that will appeal to a lot of people, to be precise, younger people, mostly girls. if you look at her behaviour, her fashion, her videos, everything she does looks like a fashion advertisement. she's got everything we have seen to be very widely adored, think gossip girl meets florence and the machine, i refer to image only. now days indie pop and the likes have become nothing unusual, and from what i hear and see, the basis of that whole culture is "it can be bad, bad is original, garage is cool", to explain this better, vocalists and players with simple melodies/limited abilities, are becoming very popular, because there is this feeling of "ok, i want to listen to this because i don't want to be a part of the mainstream". i need to clarify here that this is purely an opinion, everyone can listen to whatever they like, i have nothing against those musicians/fans at all. the problem i have with that is, and i'm speaking of my own personal preference, is that the industry has become so watered down, that anyone and everyone can become a recording artist. years ago it used to be more difficult, but now, with triple j and all, anyone can be on the radio, which is good, and bad. back to the point, watching del ray perform, and i'm not referring only to snl, is almost funny because she is visibly unaware of how to sing, and she does not communicate with the audience. i do not hate her, if she's having a ball doing it, let her. this doesn't bother me that much because when it comes down to it, if you don't like an artist, don't listen/watch them. i think her popularity is widely based on pleasing the masses, and the good timing. today the term "star" is used more frequently than "musician", and a large part of the motivation behind people wanting to be performers, is not love for the art but fame. the masses don't want it complicated so lana del ray's will continue to exist. the thing is, here we all are talking about her....she's done a damn good job of making sure she gets talked about. if she does come here, i will go and see her live and make my own conclusions on how good she is...but considering the great sound and sound techs she would have around her at such a high grade performance as snl, i doubt i'd be anything even remotely close to charmed.

my goodness, i was going to go into a blithering rage, but instead i'll just make two points.



Incorrect. The Internet means that the number of bands that are out there, and are available to people, has increased exponentially (although I wouldn't call that watering down). However, this increase of bands that are on the cusp of success, and being talked about, means that it's harder to get on the radio than ever before. Hence why JJJ goes to lengths like setting up an entire digital station just to play unsigned music.



Also incorrect. It's generally accepted that no musical act is going to sound their best on SNL, because the sound stage and setup is configured for live comedy + television broadcast of said comedy, which is a completely different setup than for live music. I haven't seen the now notorious performance, but if a musical act sounds good on SNL, it's DESPITE the setup, not because of it.

Im sorry but it seems as if you just said that the majority of indie musicians have limited abilities. Which is stupid. and wrong. for example Bloc Party, Foals are both indie bands but are also an incredible wealth of talent.

also im pretty sure she writes the lyrics at least to her songs, video games at the very least
