Lady Gaga breaks records at Chromatica Ball

Earlier this summer, Lady Gaga and her team embarked on their first all-stadium tour. We were counting down the days until the first performance to find out the set list, design and dances that Gaga woukd would be performing. And she did NOT disappoint. The Chromatica Ball began on July 17 in Dusseldorf, Germany and will end on September 17 in Miami, Florida.

The tour has already broken records in different cities. Fans have taken to social media to share that they think this is the best tour of Gaga’s career. We couldn’t agree more!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this is the first time that Gaga’s sixth studio album Chromatic, (2020) will be played. Luckily, they could shoot in front of an audience again in July 2022. Maybe it’s Lady Gaga’s crazy stage presence, maybe it’s due to the long wait, or maybe it’s is both, but fans are selling out stadiums night after night. Gaga’s summer tour was a success!

Playing hits such as “Poker Face” and “Bad Romance,” Lady Gaga also included songs from her most recent albums and elaborate dance scenes to accompany them. Gaga is truly a performer, there’s no doubt about it. There’s a part of her in every aspect of the show, from the choreography to the costume changes, it’s clear that she cares deeply about her career and her fanbase.

Tour Influences

At the start of the tour, Gaga wrote, “WELCOME TO MY MUSEUM OF BRUTALITY” on Instagram paired with a black and white photograph of the stage with the crowd below. Brutalist architecture inspired much of the scenography of The Chromatica Ball this tour. This building trend was popular during the post-war period of the 1950s. It is very expressive and symbolizes starting over. Reuniting after a period of misfortune and darkness also influenced much of this tour and the album.
