Summertime Sadness singer Lana Del Rey recently performed at Fenway Park, Boston, on June 20, 2024, for the first time. However, her show was cut short due to the weather in Boston, where Lana was supposed to be on stage at 8:30 p.m., but the show didn't start until 10:30 pm.

There was a thunderstorm in Boston at the time of the show, resulting in the evacuation of the stadium until the rain stopped. According to Just Jared, a sign was placed on the field that read that a delay was certain in the performances of the night owing to "pending weather conditions."

The sign read:

“All fans must leave the field seating and open air seating sections and seek shelter inside the stadium concourse immediately. Please take time to assemble all members of your party and calmly proceed inside the stadium concourse.”

Once the show resumed at 10:30 pm, Lana Del Rey sang fifteen songs and finished her set on time.

"Do you want a one hour show tonight if it’s possible and the lightning stops?"— Lana Del Rey posts an Instagram poll during the Fenway show

Despite there being a thunderstorm in Boston delaying Lana Del Rey's concert in Fenway Park, the singer was active on Instagram at the time, posting updates for her fans. According to Newsweek, Lana first posted a photo of the stage and informed everyone that the show was being held off until 9 p.m. due to wind warnings.

Then, she uploaded a video on Instagram Stories informing fans that the stage had been cleared. The singer also expressed her disappointment at the weather conditions, stating:

"Um, so, ugh, it's—every time the lightning strikes we have to wait 20 minutes and, ah, it just keeps striking, so what we were hoping for was to fill the room back up, um, by 10 o'clock, at least do an hour-long show, um, that's what we were hoping for bare minimum."

Moreover, the Young and Beautiful singer posted an Instagram poll on her stories giving her fans an alternative. Her Instagram story mentioned:

“Do you want a one hour show tonight if it’s possible and the lightning stops? As opposed to a two hour show on Saturday.”
