Grimes and Lana Del Rey are two of the most popular, polarizing, unmistakably unique figures in popular music, so in that sense they make perfect touring partners. On the other hand: What the hell?! Today’s announcement that Grimes will open for Del Rey’s summer North American tour dates is weird enough that Grimes had to include a disclaimer that this is not an April Fool’s Joke. Should be some wild shows! Check out the dates above and below.

Note that Courtney Love is opening the first leg of Del Rey’s tour.
UPDATE: Lana Del Rey shared some nice words about Grimes via Instagram…
Man, am I excited to have Grimes come on the road. What can I say except that it's gonna be good vibes all around. Some people make music for the money and some people make music because they are true artists. Grimes is authentically and naturally herself in everything she does. That's why we love her !
