Lady Gaga has always marched to the beat of her own drum and she’ll be doing exactly that this summer.
For, despite being weeks away from setting sail on the ‘Joanne World Tour’ in a mix of arenas and stadiums, Mother Monster has announced that she’ll be staging another Dive Bar trek in partnership with Bud Light.
The 31-year-old originally launched her chart-topping ‘Joanne’ LP with the unique venture last October.
Billed as ‘Bud Light’s Dive Bar Tour 2.0,’ the mini-tour will feature Gaga as headliner— with two soon-to-be-announced guests. Their names are under wraps, but she tells E!:
“[they’re ] very different from me. It’s really going to diversify the tour.”
As for her motivations for the three-date excursion, she says:
“I just really love to play in bars and I miss it all the time, which is why we’ve created this amazing tour that I’m so happy other artists will be doing now.
There is something that is very hard in a way about sitting up so close to everyone and singing, but that’s sort of the joy of it—that’s really why we’re doing it, because it’s taking it back and it’s not so separated and it’s not so ‘cellphones.’ It’s just people close together, some beer and some music.
The first two shows proceed her ‘Joanne World Tour,’ while the last takes place at the same time:
Las Vegas – July 13th
July 26 – Los Angeles
August 30th – New Orleans
Like before, all of the performances will be live streamed on Facebook.
She also hinted that – while this is a ‘Joanne’ focal undertaking – new music may randomly be premiered; much like how she hatched ‘The Cure’ at Coachella. She said:
“You just might get some more music. I love making music. I don’t know exactly when. I’m sort of feeling like I’m making songs and doing all sorts of things with music, but I don’t know exactly when or how I will release them. I’m working on that.”
While we’re still side-eyeing Gaga re the whereabouts of ‘The Cure’ video, we continue to admire her desire to veer left-field.
It’s very “new rules / no rules” and keeps her narrative exciting.
