"Performing at The Apollo has always been a dream of mine. Thank you to SiriusXM and Pandora for inviting me. I'm excited for my fans to see a special show at this iconic venue," Gaga said in a press release.
Tickets for her performance at the iconic 1,500-capacity venue are by invitation-only for SiriusXM subscribers. The company is also giving away two tickets plus transportation and accommodation for new subscribers since May 5, including those in the trial period; more info here.
"After getting her start in New York City, Lady Gaga went on to conquer the world with her talent. We are thrilled to have Lady Gaga perform this exclusive show at the world famous Apollo Theater in her hometown as we celebrate SiriusXM and Pandora as one company," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SiriusXM.
The intimate performance will be Gaga's first in almost two years in her hometown of N.Y.C. (not counting her Met Gala fashion show, of course), and her first-ever at the Apollo.
The theater has been a cornerstone of entertainment and culture in New York since the turn of the 20th century. It has hosted scores of major musicians over the decades, like Aretha Franklin and George Clinton and the Parliament-Funkadelic in the '70s. SiriusXM, meanwhile, hosted Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen at the Apollo in 2010 and 2012, respectively.
Before heading to New York, the Queen of Camp will wrap up a second round of shows (May 30–June 15) for her Las Vegas residency. The shows, which gives fans a choice between a stripped-down "Jazz & Piano" or the cutting-edge technology-supported "Enigma," will pick back up in the fall.
