American Express presents BST Hyde Park
Sunday 9 July
Special guests to be announced!
The final headliner for the 10th anniversary of London’s festival American Express presents BST Hyde Park has to be incredibly special, and so we are delighted to announce a one of a kind performer and, as Rolling Stone UK notes, the “greatest American songwriter of the 21st century”, Lana Del Rey. Her huge headline show takes place on Sunday 9 July, with special guests to be announced. American Express® Cardmembers can take advantage of the first presale from 10am, Friday 21 April until 9am, Thursday 27 April. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Thursday 27 April.
Since the release of her major debut album Born to Die eleven years ago, which featured the viral hit “Video Games,” Lana Del Rey has captivated audiences globally. The remix of “Summertime Sadness” gave Lana her first Top 10 US hit. Her second album, 2014’s critically acclaimed album Ultraviolence with singles “West Coast” and “Brooklyn Baby”’ followed. Her subsequent albums include 2019’s Grammy-nominated Norman Fucking Rockwell!, 2021’s Blue Banisters, and 2023’s Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd, which hit No.1 in the UK last month.
Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd is Lana’s 6th UK number 1 album and is the fastest selling album of 2023 in the UK. BST Hyde Park will be one of the first places to hear tracks from the new album live, alongside much loved classics.
Having embarked on 5 headlining tours, Lana has performed at the biggest festivals across the globe, including Coachella in 2014 to seven Lollapalooza festivals internationally. Her Summer 2023 BST Hyde Park gig sees Lana’s highly anticipated return to the London stage.
Lana Del Rey joins the previously announced legendary BST headliners: P!NK (24 + 25 June), Guns N’ Roses (30 June), Take That (1 July), BLACKPINK (2 July), Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band (6 + 8 July) and Billy Joel (7 July), making this another stellar year for the hugely popular London festival.
2022’s BST Hyde Park saw three monumental weekends of music; the Rocketman himself Elton John performed as a part of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, The Rolling Stones were reunited with Hyde Park for two incredible sell out nights, with an emotional and triumphant tribute to the late Charlie Watts. London’s global star Adele brought it home for two shows with an incredible all female line up. The Sunday vibes were offered up by Americana legends Eagles and Pearl Jam provided two packed nights of rock n roll. Finally, one of Britain’s best loved groups, Duran Duran, closed the final night with a day of singalong smash hits.
American Express® Cardmembers can take advantage of the first presale from 10am, Friday 21 April until 9am, Thursday 27 April.
Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Thursday 27 April.
