Lana Del Rey blasts ex-tour manager for quitting weeks before Coachella

Lana Del Rey has slammed her former tour manager for quitting a month before her Coachella Festival appearance.

The 38-year-old singer headlined the annual music event, which is held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, in the Coachella Valley, last weekend and thrilled everyone with her motorcycle entrance – which was choreographed by stunt coordinator Wally Crowder.

Lana has now revealed that the set went ahead without the help or assistance of her tour manager, Peter Abbott, who walked away from her just a month before she took to the stage.

In an Instagram post, she wrote: “[Thank you] Emily for stepping up as tour manager when 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.

“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.

“Way to go Emily, you killed it with grace. 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.

“P.S. please send me an email if you decide to quit this year – 15 years is a long time for us too.”

The ‘Video Games’ hitmaker also thanked artists Billie Eilish, Jon Batiste and Jack Antonoff for taking to the stage to perform with her and offered a thank you to her team.

She wrote: “Thank you guys, for everything. Jack and John and Billie for showing up for me.

“Wally Crowder for my bad as bikes. Every stunning dancer on stage – and Alex for her beautiful choreography”.

The ‘Summertime Sadness’ songwriter also revealed that in the months leading up to her Coachella set, she and her band spent months rehearsing in a “40 degree warehouse” in Los Angeles that “was so cold” she developed laryngitis which put her performances in jeopardy.

Her post continued: “Thank you [to] the band for just killing it and spending months in Sylmar in a 40 degree warehouse to the point, but it was so cold that I caught laryngitis that literally left just a few hours before I hit the stage because Tessa DiPietro spent two hours lifting that cough remotely through her body intuitive skills just minutes before showtime.”
