Lana Del Rey hits out at tour manager who 'quit for no reason' before Coachella set

Lana Del Rey hits out at tour manager who 'quit for no reason' before Coachella set

"Not stressful at all."

It seems that Lana Del Rey's 2024 Coachella set wasn't all plain sailing behind the scenes.

Ten years to the day of her first Coachella performance in 2014, the 'Born To Die' singer made a grand entrance on bikes and welcomed guest stars Jon Batiste and Billie Eilish to the Main Stage.

With Eilish, Del Rey, wrapped in a sparkly baby blue dress from Dolce & Gabbana, sang her 2012 hit 'Video Games' and Eilish's 2016 song 'Ocean Eyes', gifting fans gathered in Indio, California, an ethereal performance for the ages.

But it seems that what went down in the run-up to the annual music festival wasn't the most relaxing experience for Del Rey.

Lana Del Rey called out her tour manager for allegedly quitting 'for no reason'.

In a heartfelt thank you message posted to her Instagram after her set on 15 April, Del Rey alleged that her tour manager of 15 years had quit 'for no reason,' leaving her and the rest of her team to put on the show 'by ourselves'.

The 'National Anthem' singer then praised 'Emily for stepping up as tour manager', claiming that the reason as to why her former tour manager had left so suddenly was due to '10 comped bikes'.

"[...] Pete quit for no reason after 15 years because he was butt hurt that I got 10 comped bikes for free from Wally and randomly decided he was more of a stage designer than a tour manager," she said.

"Never got a phone call probably never will. Still grateful for the 15 years though."

"No worries – 37 days was more than enough time to put together an entire headlining set all by ourselves. Not stressful at all," she finally wrote, adding that her acting tour manager Emily 'killed it with grace'.

Del Rey didn't spare one more jab aimed at her ex-tour manager when thanking her two managers, Ben and Ed.

"Thank you to my managers Ben and Ed for making me laugh the entire way through everything for my whole freaking life even though none of it ever makes any sense," she wrote.

"PS please send me an email If you decide to quit this year- 15 years is a long time for us too," she concluded, adding a smiley emoji.

She also revealed that she'd caught laryngitis which 'literally left a few hours' before she went on stage.

Following her Coachella performance, Del Rey is set to release her tenth studio album Lasso this September - with the new music said to mark her first official country project.
