watch Lana Del Rey bring out Joan Baez in Berkeley
Lana Del Rey continues to have surprises in store on her Norman Fucking Rockwell tour. The Jones Beach show saw her bringing out Leonard Cohen’s son Adam for a Leonard Cohen cover and bringing out Sean Ono Lennon for the live debut of their song “Tomorrow Never Came”; the Vancouver and Seattle and Portland shows saw her covering Joni Mitchell’s “For Free”; and in Berkeley last night (10/6), Lana once again played the Joni cover, and then brought out another folk legend, Joan Baez, to play Joan’s own “Diamonds & Rust” with her and then to allow Joan cover Bob Dylan‘s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” on her own. She also once again did “Chelsea Hotel #2″ with Adam Cohen later on in the show.
Lana and Joan sounded great together on “Diamonds & Rust,” and Joan sounded great doing “Don’t Think Twice,” and Lana’s crowd seemed super into her. Watch below.
The tour continues in Sacramento on Tuesday (10/8), and then hits LA’s Hollywood Bowl on Thursday (10/10), and Lana’s been promising to bring out Weyes Blood for the Joni Mitchell cover at the Hollywood Bowl show. Stay tuned.
