grimes and lana del rey are going on tour
The Endless Summer Tour is no April Fools joke.
Grimes and Lana Del Rey are officially touring North America together this summer. Grimes shared a poster for The Endless Summer Tour 2015 on Instagram earlier this afternoon, writing excitedly: "Guess whose [sic] opening for Lana on her canadian and usa tour!!!!! gonna be the best show on earth". Grimes also admitted she may have picked the wrong day to share news of their tantalizing double bill, adding: "Ps this is really not an April fools joke just absurdly timed announcement haha. Did not realize the date".
According to the poster, the tour will take in ten dates across the US and Canada, beginning in Indianapolis, Indiana on May 28 and wrapping up in West Palm Beach, Florida on June 16. They're the first 2015 live shows booked in by either artist.
Grimes has yet to announce a follow-up to her landmark 2012 album Visions, but last month she shared a video for a previously unreleased track called Realiti. In December she tweeted that writing songs on guitar had opened up "a whole new sonic world" for her and revealed: "Playing 'irl' music is my biggest inspiration lately." Del Rey is due to release her third album, Honeymoon, this summer at a date to be confirmed.
