Lana Del Rey & Courtney Love Will Tour Together In 2015, But Leave Your Flower Crown At Home
Monday morning, the Internet played a few notes on a trumpet, cried out "HEAR YE! HEAR YE!", unfurled a scroll, and read an announcement aloud. Said announcement had me like, "Wait, is this some sort of December Fool's prank?" The announcement: Lana Del Rey and Courtney Love will tour together in 2015. The Hole frontwoman will join the 29-year-old singer-songwriter for eight dates of the Endless Summer Tour. The pairing of the Generation X grunge rocker and the Generation Y glam songstress seems too awesome to be true, but it is indeed true! And I am HERE for it.
What oh what will this Del Rey/Love tour be like? I have some guesses:
At least one duet
I hope Del Rey and Love team up for at least one song. My initial idea: They sing Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box" as a duet. Ya know, a call-back to Del Rey's cover of the track/Love's tweets about Del Rey's cover of the track.
...But I can't decide if Love and Del Rey singing a song about the former's ladybits would be too weird. I'm on the fence.
A “no flower crowns” rule
Unless Love’s strong negative feelings about floral headpieces have faded, it might be in every venue’s best interest to confiscate flower crowns at the door.
Eye Makeup Everywhere
I will be disappointed if a majority of the folks in attendance aren't sporting a combo of winged eyeliner, copious amounts of mascara, and smudgy eyeshadow. If the eye makeup runs, all the better.
While we're talkin' makeup: Red lipstick is a MUST.
I assume the cigs will be a-flowin' on that stage.
I mean, DUH. This concert will probably be a moody moodfest, and I wouldn't want it any other way.
