On November 29th, Courtney Love hinted that she and Lana Del Rey had some sort of collaboration in the works, tweeting "See you in London in ten hours @LanaDelRey we are going to own that town xxc #excitingnews2come." The exciting news? The Hole rocker will join the Ultraviolence singer on tour in 2015.
So far the pair has lined up eight shows together, kicking off May 7th, 2015 in Woodlands, Texas. A joint May 18th gig at Los Angeles' legendary Hollywood Bowl is also on the schedule. However, come the end of May, Del Rey will soldier on with the trek sans Love as the tour moves east. Del Rey has nine more Love-less 2015 shows on her itinerary, wrapping up with a June 16th concert in West Palm Beach, Florida. It's unclear who will be joining the singer for the remainder of the tour.
Recently, Love admitted she'd like to collaborate with Del Rey or Miley Cyrus if the song were right. In 2012, after Del Rey covered Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box" live, Love tweeted at the singer, "You do know the song is about my vagina right? 'Throw down your umbilical noose so i can climb right back,' umm. On top of which some of the lyrics about my vagina I contributed. So umm next time you sing it, think about my vagina will you? lol xc. You are gorgeous and very talented, it was all in good humor love, it is true however."
