Lady Gaga released her fourth studio album “ARTPOP” back in November, but the singer took nearly a month to reveal the 2014 tour dates in support of her latest chart-topping effort. Fans have anxiously been awaiting the announcement that finally came to light on Dec. 3, especially since Gaga’s Born This Way Ball Tour was cut short earlier this year due to a performance-related injury. Luckily, many of the cities whose shows were canceled in 2013 will now have a new opportunity to see the five-time GRAMMY Award winner perform live.
Kicking off May 4 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., the 2014 artRave: ARTPOP Ball Tour will eventually make its way to more than 20 cities across North America throughout the summer. In addition to the first stop, Gaga will travel to Atlanta (May 6), Philadelphia (May 12), New York (May 13), and Chicago (July 11), all sites that experienced a canceled concert from her previous venture. You can see a comprehensive list of the upcoming concerts detailed on the bottom of this page.
The eccentric singer has left a large gap between her June concerts, but she has yet to confirm whether that month will be filled with international tour dates or a number of festival appearances across the country. At the time of the tour announcement, the final concert is scheduled to take place on July 21 at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.
If fans were worried Gaga had lost any of her quirkiness in the months since her last tour, she delighted them with over- the- top live performances on the Nov. 16 episode of “Saturday Night Live,” as well as at her Nov. 10 release party, also titled artRave. In addition to showcasing the Jeff Koons statue featured on her album cover, demonstrating a flying dress, and displaying her new Haus of Gaga designer fashions, the musical visionary performed a number of new songs, including the album’s debut single “Applause,” featured below.
Ahead of the upcoming tour launch, Gaga also will complete a seven-night residency at New York’s Roseland Ballroom. The longstanding venue announced it would be closing in 2014 and that the “Born This Way” singer’s concerts will be the last performed at the venue. Spread out over the course of two weeks, the residency will feature concerts on March 28, 30-31, and April 2, 4, 6-7.
