Lana Del Rey postpones Australian 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.”
