If you were sad that you missed Lana Del Rey's intimate and sold-out performances at the Hollywood Forever cemetery in October, now here's your chance to see her. The Ultraviolence singer will be hitting the Hollywood Bowl on May 18 during her upcoming U.S. tour—and Courtney Love will be joining her.

As part of Del Rey's 2015 Endless Summer tour, she'll have Love by her side for eight of her 17 shows that kick off on May 7 in The Woodlands, Texas and end on June 16 in West Palm Beach, Florida, according to Rolling Stone.

Love hinted at the news on Nov. 29 when she tweeted this message to Del Rey:

Back in July, the 50-year-old rocker said in an interview with news.com.au that she'd be interested in collaborating with Del Rey. "And I have a distinctive voice and it might sound cool if it’s the right song," Love said. "I would work with Miley or Lana (Del Rey)."

And after Del Rey started doing live covers of Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box," Love took to Twitter to remind Del Rey that song was about her vagina. However, she later tweeted: "You are gorgeous and very talented, it was all in good humor love, it is true however bwahaa xc."
