Lana Del Rey To Play Two Gigs At Cemetery
The Polydor/Interscope album has been described by critics as "gloomy, doomy and outright dark," something the shows are out to prove, says the magazine.
The gigs are scheduled to take place on October 17 and 18.
According to the cemetery's website, it is "the final resting place to more of Hollywood's founders and stars than anywhere else on Earth," says NME. The cemetery also regularly hosts events and gigs.
In an interview with LA Mag earlier this year, Jay Boileau, the cemetery's executive vice president and director of cultural events programming, said the site holds movie screenings, memorials and concerts.
The cemetery, however, forbids death metal concerts.
Among the celebrities buried in the site are George Harrison, Dee Dee Ramone and Johnny Ramone of legendary punk band The Ramones, actors Mel Blanc and Rudolph Valentino and movie director Tony Scott.
The announcement of Del Rey's gigs follows the cancellation of all her scheduled shows and promotional engagements in Europe due to medical reasons.
"For medical reasons independent of our will, the artist has been forced to cancel all promotional activities planned in Europe over the coming days," said a statement by Del Rey's label Polydor/Interscope.
She called off her performance in BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge and a couple of private gigs in Paris for Virgin Radio listeners.
According to Del Rey's website, she will be fit to perform starting early next month. Her first show will be on October 4 at Austin City Limits Music Festival.
"Ultraviolence," released in June, is the singer's follow-up to her major-label debut "Born to Die," which was released in January 2012 by Polydor/Interscope. Del Rey has also released two EPs, a self-titled one and "Paradise."
