The Norman Fucking Rockwell Tour (stylized as The Norman Fucking Rockwell! Tour) is the sixth concert tour and fourth worldwide concert tour by Lana Del Rey. It is in support of her sixth major-label studio album, Norman Fucking Rockwell!. It currently consists of three legs across North America and begun on September 21, 2019, at the Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York. The setlist is very similar to Festival Tour (2019).
Background[edit | edit source]
From March 2019 to July 2019, leading up to the release of Norman Fucking Rockwell!, Del Rey performed at various festivals, starting in New Orleans and then touring across Europe. At these festivals, Del Rey performed the singles "Mariners Apartment Complex", "Venice Bitch" and "Doin' Time" from Norman Fucking Rockwell! for the first time. Although these new songs were incorporated into the setlist, much of the stage design and aesthetic of these appearances were reminiscent of the LA to the Moon Tour.
On August 1, 2019, Del Rey announced dates for a new headlining tour intended to promote Norman Fucking Rockwell!. The first dates announced consisted of 8 across North America and 8 across Europe, with general sales beginning on August 9, 2019. The tour sees Del Rey revisiting venues such as the WaMu Theater in Seattle and the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. At this time, possibility of future legs is undetermined.
Cancelled European tour[edit | edit source]
On February 20, 2020, it was announced that the entire UK and European leg of the tour was cancelled due to an illness that caused her to lose her singing voice. Del Rey took to Instagram to address the cancellation and expressed her intent to make it up to fans in the future.
