Lady Gaga played an intimate NYC club show last night to celebrate the release of her new album, Joanne. We previously speculated that the local stop of the singer's Bud Light–sponsored Dive Bar Tour might happen at Sunny's in Red Hook (where she filmed a promo video a few weeks ago) but the performance went down at Greenwich Village venue Bitter End, where a pre-Gaga Stefani Germanotta performed as a teenager. She later performed an encore from the marquee outside. Mark Ronson, who worked with her on the album, joined to play guitar on upbeat pop tune "A-YO" and others. If you couldn't get a ticket, the whole thing is streaming below. Lady Gaga doesn't have a proper tour announced yet, though she will be headlining a little thing called the Super Bowl come February.
There were so many fans that shut down Bleecker St. last night during our dive bar show at The Bitter End. I couldn't leave without singing to you, the bar was to small to fit you all! Was so awesome to connect with you on release night like that in my hometown from the rooftop of the place I began this whole journey when I was 15 playing out in NY as a singer/songwriter.
