Lana Del Rey - Lana Del Rey Cancellation Leads To Questions Over Live Capabilities

Lana Del Rey may be soaring high at the top of the UK album charts at the moment, but the proof of sales success hasn't hushed the voices of critics who've called into question her aptitude for performing on the live stage following a badly received appearance on the legendary entertainment show 'Saturday Night Live.' Del Rey performed twice on the episode, hosted by Daniel Radcliffe, and looked nervous throughout, struggling to project her voice at all and coming across as timid and uncomfortable in the glare of the spotlight.
Following the event, a forthcoming tour was cancelled according to the New York Post, with a source telling them "[Lana] and her manager decided to cancel [the tour] after 'snl,' she was very upset," continuing, they added, "They figure it allows time for her to clear her head, then go back to selling tickets. More importantly, they figure, the extra time gives them more distance from 'snl.' "
'Saturday Night Live' is aired on Nbc and the network's anchor Brian Williams found an email of his leaked on line which reportedly called Del Rey's performance "one of the worst outings in 'snl' history." The harsh fact of the matter may be that Del Rey simply isn't a live performer; not every artist feels the need to turn out a live show, being content to just work on their studio recordings - unfortunately for the artist formerly known as Lizzie Grant that won't really wash with someone of her sudden stature. The whole machine behind her's been geared to make her as big a star as possible - a big part of that involves doing your stuff in public.
