Lady Gaga Announces 2020 The Chromatica Ball Tour
GRAMMY-winning pop superstar Lady Gaga has announced dates for her forthcoming The Chromatica Ball Tour. The six-date summer trek, launching in late July and running through mid-August, will take "Mother Monster" on a limited run of exclusive performances in stadiums and major venues across Europe and North America.
The upcoming tour is named after Lady Gaga's newly announced album, Chromatica, which drops April 10. Her sixth full-length to date, Chromatica features lead single "Stupid Love," which she officially released last week (Feb. 28).
In conjunction with the tour, Lady Gaga will donate $1 from each ticket sold to her Born This Way Foundation (BTWF), the nonprofit organization she and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, founded in 2011. BTWF aims to create a "kinder and braver world" by supporting the "mental and emotional wellness of young people" and building "action-oriented programs and useful resources for youth to thrive and drive change in their communities," according to the foundation's mission statement.
Chromatica, which the singer teased last March, follows Lady Gaga's 2016 album, Joanne, which received two GRAMMY nominations, for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance ("Million Reasons"), at the 60th GRAMMY Awards, held in 2018.
An 11-time GRAMMY winner, Lady Gaga won her most recent golden gramophones at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards, held this past January. The soundtrack for her 2018 film A Star Is Born, in which she co-starred alongside Bradley Cooper, won for Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media, while album single "I'll Never Love Again (Film Version)" won for Best Song Written For Visual Media.
General tickets for Lady Gaga's The Chromatica Ball Tour go on sale next week: Friday, March 13, for the Paris, London and Toronto shows and Monday, March 16, for the Boston, Chicago and New Jersey shows. For more information and for the full tour routing, visit her official website.
