Lana Del Rey will soon be appearing somewhere other than the television.
The singer announced a small tour on Tuesday, include two residencies in New York and Los Angeles. In June, she'll perform three nights in LA's El Rey Theatre and three more in New York's Irving Plaza. After that, she'll set out on a European festival tour.
