Lana Del Rey Brings “LA To The Moon” Tour To Nashville

Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - by Carmen O'Hagan

“I don’t belong in this world,” the soft, sultry voice of Lana Del Rey whispered through the air as she started her show at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Tuesday night. She opened with the track “13 Beaches” from her 2017 album Lust for Life

From the start of the show her slow swaying, soft-spoken, ways were evident in the melancholic beginning.
For her second song she and her two backup dances laid on the floor of the stage while she sang the track “Pretty When You Cry.” 

However, if the crowd gave into the sadness of her lyrics they didn’t show it, with many adoring fans screaming out “I love you” excitedly throughout the night.

After a few medleys including covering a bit of the classic “Scarborough Fair” at the end of her track “Cherry,” Lana led into many of her hits including “Blue Jeans,” “White Mustang,” “Young and Beautiful,” “Video Games,” and “Summertime Sadness.”

Her stage setup reflected the beachy, California nostalgia popular in her music and videos. There were rope swings, striped beach chairs, and grassy boulders.

Despite how obvious her fans adore her, she didn’t manage to sell the arena well, but nonetheless was thankful for the opportunity to play such a big stage. She told the crowd last time she was in Music City she was at the Ryman.

She ended the show with “Off to the Races,” a more upbeat song from her 2012 release Born to Die. The LA to the Moon tour continues through Texas this weekend and ends the U.S. leg in Honolulu at the end of this month.

Roy Exum: ‘Easy Eddie’ & Butch

Not an hour’s drive from where I now sit is one of the best restaurants in all of Tennessee.

What’s this? 14-inch walls filled with sand to stop a G-man’s bullet? Escape ... (click for more)
