Lana Del Rey has always had a morbid streak in her, from naming her debut album Born To Die to claiming that she wishes she “was dead already,” so it was only a matter of time before the 29-year-old singer-songwriter performed a concert in a cemetery. Billboard reports that Del Rey will be performing two shows at the legendary Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles on Oct. 17 and 18. Tickets go on sale at noon on Sept. 27 through the Hollywood Forever website.
Hollywood Forever Cemetery is the final resting place of countless figures in the entertainment industry, including actor Mickey Rooney and director Cecil B. DeMille, so a performance there would tie in pretty well with Del Rey’s fixation on classic Hollywood. If you clicked on the link posted above and visited the cemetery’s website, however, you’ll notice that concerts are a surprisingly common occurrence at Hollywood Forever, with upcoming concerts including Manchester Orchestra and comedian Brian Posehn. Though most performances appear to take place at the cemetery’s Masonic Lodge, Del Rey’s performances will take place outdoors on the Fairbanks Lawn.
Hopefully Del Rey will be well enough to perform these cemetery concerts, as she recently canceled the entire European leg of her current tour due to "medical reasons."
