Queen of 'sadcore' Lana Del Rey to play LCA — will probably talk shit about Radiohead

Posted By on Thu, Jan 11, 2018 at 6:02 AM

While Detroit’s temperature hovers mercilessly in the single digits, rest assured — sunshine is on its way, thanks to everyone’s favorite L.A. queen of melodrama and “#AestheticGoals” Lana Del Rey. Lady Lana’s 2017 record Lust for Life embodies the true spirit of “Hollywood sadcore” glam, featuring breathy Nancy Sinatra-esque vocals paired with an opulent display of retro nuances (all bound by a flower crown of thorns). But she’s not all runny mascara. In fact, she’s kind of a total badass. Hedonism and vintage Instagram filters are what we’ve come to love most about the pouty pop priestess. Oh yeah, the fact that she says she put a Wiccan hex on Donald Trump doesn’t hurt either.

Lana Del Rey will perform at Little Caesars Arena on Wednesday, Jan. 17 at at 7 p.m.; 2645 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-7000; olympiaentertainment.com; Tickets start at $39.50.
