The fascinating American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey – born Elizabeth “Lizzy” Grant is one of today’s hottest alterative pop artists worldwide. The New York state native skilfully combines various musical styles, such as blues, soul, indie and jazz with her own melancholy lyrics, thus creating a unique sound that reflects her deepest emotions.
Her musical career began in small bars and clubs in Brooklyn, New York City, where she would often perform.
Her unique style had always set her apart – Elizabeth would deliver her own versions of 1960’s jazz and blues instead of the then-popular indie folk. Signing her first record deal at the age of 20 and releasing her first digital album under her real name, the young singer soon after rebranded herself as Lana Del Rey, signing a joint record deal with Interscope Records and Polydor.
In the summer of 2011 Del Rey released the video of her new song Video Games via YouTube, which soon became a real viral sensation. The song was included in her 2012 album “Born To Die” which was sold in more than 4.4 million copies worldwide, topping the music charts with lyrical anthems such as Blue Jeans, Born To Die andSummertime Sadness.
Del Rey has also received several prominent music awards, including the 2012 Brit Award for the Best International Breakthrough Act, an MTV European Music Award for the Best Alternative Act as well as this year’s Brit Award as the Best International Female Solo Artist.
A bright and untamed star, Lana Del Rey is both blinding and exciting; her art and persona seem to contain secrets unknown, mystifying and intriguing.
Tickets go on sale on March 6th at 10 am in all “Biļešu Serviss” and “Ticketpro” box-offices as well as online. General admission - LVL 29. Seats starting from LVL 30 –LVL 37.
