Back when she was engaged to Chicago Fire heartthrob Taylor Kinney, Lady Gaga almost seemed like an honorary Chicagoan. She participated in the Polar Plunge, went to Cubs games and sometimes showed up at Wicker Park bars with her entourage. But ever since she ended her relationship with Kinney, Gaga hasn't paid too much attention to the city that once served as her second home.
Thankfully, Gaga is coming back to town in August, joining the packed Wrigley Field concert schedule for a headlining set behind her 2016 release Joanne at the North Side ballpark. She'll be the first woman to headline the Friendly Confines in its short history as a concert venue. As usual, you can expect a theatrical, immaculately choreographed performance filled with pop hits (and probably a few of the well-worn standards she crooned with Tony Bennett). Perhaps she'll jump into the ballpark suspended from wires and surrounded by flashing drones, just like at her recent Super Bowl halftime show?
Tickets go on sale Monday, February 13 at 10am.
