Gaga swings through the City of Monsterly Love on her Joanne World Tour, performing for two consecutive nights at Wells Fargo Center in South Philly. The new album, her fifth studio work, finds the 31-year-old diva veering into soft-rock territory—a pretty sharp turn following her 2013 pop-art manifesto Artpop—with stripped-down tracks like the slow-burning “Million Reasons” and the country-tinged “Sinner’s Prayer.” Her local monsters seem to favor the departure; tickets went so fast in Philly that it was one of a handful of cities in which she had to add an extra date to accommodate her fans.
