American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey will perform in Poland for the first time this month. The New York native became an internet sensation in 2011 when her self-produced video for debut single “Video Games” went viral.
She subsequently released her second studio album (the first being released independently under the name Lana Del Ray a.k.a. Lizzy Grant) “Born to Die.” The album has so far sold more than two million copies worldwide, while the single of the same name has more than 62 million views on YouTube.
The singer, who has described herself as a “self-styled gangsta Nancy Sinatra,” is known for her retro fashion style and unique singing voice.
But fans of the 26-year-old may find it difficult to attend her first Polish performance, which takes place at a gala event in the capital, entitled “Poles with verve,” as it is an invitation-only event.
Fans need not despair. Footage of her concert will be screened live on TVP1 at 10 pm on September 14.
