An effervescently enchanting evening with the queen of melancholy tunes, Lana del Rey in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. A fitting venue for Lana’s well known love of old Hollywood and her dark soulful sound. Show-goers sprawled out onto the grass fields on blankets underneath the stars to be serenaded alongside the tombstones of Hollywood’s finest.
This will account for the third time I’ve seen Lana in concert and she was phenomenal as always. She has an understated stage presence, commanding the crowd without doing much except a little hip swaying and cozying up to her guitarist that makes the fans lose their minds. She seems gracious and thankful for her fan’s support and always takes out the time to come down to the crowd for photos and autographs. I got the chance to view the set list at the end of the show and noticed that she did skip over the scheduled songs Carmen and Money, Power, Glory. It is rumored that she has been ill the past few shows so it may be a possibility that’s why she cut the performance short.
It was a beautiful show with such a relaxing ambiance. With a bottle of wine and Old Money being sung from the stage, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect night.
