Lana Del Rey Postpones Tour, Cancels SXSW Performance

The New York Post is reporting that Lana Del Rey is postponing her upcoming tour in the wake of her infamous SNL performance.

The “Video Games”  singer was set to announce a 30-date tour in support of her new album Born to Die, but after deciding she wasn’t ready and that a poor performance could hurt record sales, executives at Interscope decided to postpone tour.

“[Lana] and her manager decided to cancel [the tour] after SNL,” a source told the Post’s Page Six, stating that Del Rey was unhappy with the decision. “They figure it allows time for her to clear her head, then go back to selling tickets. More importantly, they figure, the extra time gives them more distance from SNL.”

But in a statement to Rolling Stone, the singer’s camp is denies the rumors, stating that Del Rey never had plans for a spring tour, opting to launch a proper North American tour in October.

No actual tour dates were ever released, other than her upcoming appearance at 2012 SXSW. But according to Pitchfork, Del Rey’s performance at the festival has been cancelled.
