It’s official! The long anticipated 2018 world tour – LA To The Moon – has begun! Lana Del Rey kicked off her forth tour on January 5th, 2018 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, United States of America. Jhené Aiko opened the show as the support act!

Lana Del Rey recently performed at Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival in Los Angeles, where she was also interviewed by MTV News. She spoke to Gaby Wilson about her latest album; including the LA to the Moon tour, her collaborations and her newest music video ‘White Mustang.’
Gaby asked Lana if her song ‘Cola‘ had any reference to movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, as many in Hollywood are speaking up about the sexual assault and harassment he administered. In the song Lana sings “Harvey’s in the sky with diamonds, and it’s making me crazy.” However, other fans say they hear “ah he’s” instead of the name Harvey, especially as this is the lyric in the official lyric booklet.
In response, Lana said “When I wrote that song, I suppose I had a Harvey Weinstein/Harry Winston-type of character in mind. I envisioned, like, a benevolent, diamond-bestowing-upon-starlets visual, like a Citizen Kane or something. I’m not really sure. I thought it was funny at the time, and I obviously find it really sad now.”
With this in mind, Lana agreed to retire the song from her setlist, adding that it would be “the right thing to do.” She also stated: “I support the women who have come forward. I think they’re really brave for doing that.”
“White Mustang” opens with a zoom into location where Lana stands over a man (Icelandic actor Eðvarð Egilsson), who stares at her lovingly. The video is about the pair and their relationship which ultimately fizzles out as she chooses to push him away. The video continues even after the short dreamy ballad (2.44) finishes to make up 4 minute and 40 second video, where Lana is seen driving a White Mustang, of course, in what looks like a subtly futuristic LA. She seems hopeful, despite it all.
