Lana Del Rey Taps Courtney Love As Opening Act!

'Twas just a few years ago that Courtney Love tweeted to Lana Del Rey:

"You do know the song is about my Vagina right? 'Throw down your umbilical noose so i can climb right back,' umm… On top of which some of the lyrics about my vagina I contributed. So umm next time you sing it, think about my vagina will you?" (SOURCE)

While the media did their darndest to skew this as some sort of Twitter war, the truth was that Del Rey is a self-confessed Nirvana fan and Clove would go on to respond:

You are gorgeous and very talented, it was all in good humor love, it is true however bwahaa xc."

So, it would appear that LDR took the tweet in good humor because the "Summertime Sadness" singer has just tapped Courtney Love as the opening act for the first eight dates of her 2015 Endless Summer tour:
05-07-15 The Woodlands, TX - Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion05-09 Dallas, TX - Gexa Energy Pavilion05-12 Morrison, CO - Red Rocks Amphitheatre05-14 Phoenix, AZ - AkChin Pavilion05-16 Chula Vista, CA - Sleep Train Amphitheater05-18 Los Angeles, CA - Hollywood Bowl05-20 Mountain View, CA - Shoreline Amphitheatre05-22 Ridgefield, WA - Sleep Country Amphitheater 

Our only question at this point is who the bleep is naming these venues?  "Sleep Train Amphitheatre"?  "Sleep Country Amphitheater"?  We realize that cash is king and that the highest bidder gets to have their name out front, but at what point do we just say "enuff z'nuff"?

Do you really want "Lana Del Rey" and "sleep" in the same sentence when you're trying to sell concert tickets?

In all seriousness, seeing as how these gigs don't take place until next May, that gives Courtney five months to, you know, brush up on her guitar-playing.
