Lana Del Rey: Rumored US tour cancellation untrue

Media rumors about a spring US tour cancellation by Lana Del Rey are not true, according to a rep for the singer.

Billboard says widespread media reports that Del Rey had scrapped a planned, as-yet-unannounced spring tour to hone her live show are false since a spring tour was never in the works to begin with.

The New York Post reported Lana had postponed a string of spring tour dates to distance herself from her panned "Saturday Night Live" performance last month.

However, a rep for Del Rey tells that the singer, who released her much-discussed debut album "Born To Die" last Tuesday, still plans to begin her first full tour in October, as was previously announced.

"There has never been a spring tour announced or cancelled," says the rep.

"Born To Die" is expected to have a Top 5 US debut on the Billboard 200 after a strong first week of sales; numbers will be released on Wednesday.

The album debuted at the top of the U.K. albums chart on Monday with sales of 117,000, according to the Official Charts Company.
