Lady Gaga's Chromatica Ball Tour heads to the UK in 2021

A songwriter, singer, actress, philanthropist, dancer and fashion designer, Lady Gaga released her first album, The Fame, in 2008; but it wasn't until 2009, when breakthrough first single Just Dance came to mainstream attention that she really exploded onto the scene. Her second single Poker Face, a synth-pop track with a unique robotic hook, followed shortly after and is one of the bestselling singles of all time.

Gaga released her follow-up album Born This Way in 2011, with the titular and empowering lead single reaching No. 1 on the US Billboard Chart along with the album. The singles Judas, The Edge Of Glory and You And I also charted in the top 10. 

Gaga’s third album ARTPOP also reached No. 1 when it was released 2013, and Gaga performed the lead single Applause live for the first time at the MTV VMA’s that year. 

Her fourth studio album Cheek To Cheek involved a collaboration with jazz star Tony Bennett. The album forged a new path for Gaga, with a completely reinvented sound and a sharp contrast to her previous pop tracks. 

Joanne followed in 2016 and is markedly stripped back compared to her previous work, with a slower tempo and elements of country and soft rock. The album marked Gaga’s fourth No.1 and is another example of her versatility as she adapts to different forms of music. 

Gaga’s latest album is Chromatica. Released in May 2020, it's not only her most personal collection, but also offers a return to her dance-pop days.

Over her career, Lady Gaga has garnered numerous awards. In addition to her music, she's renowned for her videos, with a predilection for the weird and bizarre flavouring many of her visually stunning early works. 

Her fan base, nicknamed Little Monsters, have followed "Mother Monster" Lady Gaga’s whirlwind music career spanning over a decade. 

Not just a talented singer, Gaga proved her film acting ability in the 2018 musical drama A Star Is Born, starring opposite Bradley Cooper. Lady Gaga also penned the lyrics with Mark Ronson for the film’s breakout hit Shallow. The soaring No.1 song went on to win the Academy Award in 2019 for Best Original Song, along with two Grammy Awards and a Golden Globe. 

Along with her pop music chart-toppers, Gaga has also attracted attention due to her unique and zany outfits. Her live performances are second to none, with her earlier stage shows combining both the crazy and the incredible along with dazzling choreography and visuals. 

Lady Gaga toured the UK in 2018 as part of her Joanne World Tour. The singer performed in Birmingham in early 2018, but was forced to cancel her London and Manchester concert dates due to her struggle with the painful medical condition fibromyalgia.

In June 2020, Lady Gaga announced that The Chromatica Ball Tour previously set for 2020 would be put back to 2021. One massive show in London at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was set for 30 July 2021.

The album Chromatica is available for purchase here.
