Lana Del Rey to Perform at Cemetery

Now that Lana Del Rey has sung the gospel of Ultraviolence the world over, she's returning to the City of Angels for two special, spooktacular shows: the "Young and Beautiful" singer will be playing two nights at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. 

Hollywood Forever is the final resting place of some of the most adored stars of film and music (including Marilyn Monroe, George Harrison and 2/4 of The Ramones), so Lana's live show with its vintage vibe will fit right in with the revered surroundings.

It's the perfect way to close out a super successful year: the cemetery doesn't just book anyone to play there, and she's clearly reached a new level after selling out every single date of the touring she's already done behind Ultraviolence.

Oh, and fun fact: Father John Misty, who opened for LDR on the early end of the Ultraviolence tour, wrote a song inspired by Hollywood Forever, "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings." (We bet she's a fan.) Watch the video (featuring Aubrey Plaza!) below, and get ready for Lana's next haunting performance if you're lucky enough to make your way to L.A. in October.
