Lana Del Rey cancels her Norman F**king Rockwell UK and European tour

The tour was meant to start on February 25.

Lana Del Rey has cancelled her entire Norman F**king Rockwell UK and European tour.

A sudden illness has meant that the chart-topping US singer-songwriter is scrapping her four arena shows here in the UK, and a further four shows set for Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin and Cologne.

In a message to fans, Lana commented: "Sorry to let everyone down so last minute but this illness has taken me by surprise and have totally lost my singing voice. Dr has advised 4 weeks off for the moment. I hate to let everyone down but I need to get well. Love Lana”

Lana's UK dates were due to kick off in just five days time on February 25 at The O2 Arena in London. Other shows were set for Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham. Refunds will be made available from customers' original point of purchase.

The Norman F**king Rockwell UK tour was in support of Lana's fifth studio album of the same name, which reached Number 1 on the UK's Official Albums Chart last September. The album was 2019's third best-selling album on cassette.

Now with four UK Number 1 albums to her name, Lana is among the most successful females in Official Albums Chart history. Her third album Honeymoon is her only record to miss the UK top spot, peaking at Number 2.
