Lady Gaga kicked off the Joanne World Tour in Vancouver, and it was EPIC.
Lady Gaga kicked off the Joanne World Tour in Vancouver, BC last night to a sold-out crowd who she wowed for over two hours by an epic set of 22 of her smash hits.
The six-act show featured endless outfit changes, and a solid mixture of her increasingly respected back catalog of smashes as well as new tracks from the hit record Joanne which experienced a major spike in reception and sales after Gagz won crowds over at the Superbowl.
The production for the gig was out-of-this-world with three giant twinkies floating above the crowds with projections displaying on them, two of which transformed into screens and one which provided to drop down bridges that Gaga literally walked across to go from the main stage down into two smaller stages within the GA area to create a combined main-stage and in the round standing event. Gotta be a little bit gutted tho if you buy gaga tickets for GA then she literally drops a bridge over your head.
At one stage, Gaga picked up a flag from the LGBT fans in the crowd and posed with it as an ally of the community, pertinent to the locals who are celebrating Vancouver LGBT+ Pride.
Either way, Gaga is going the Madonna route of making pop concerts into rock events, and by bringing almost U2 levels of structure on the road, she’s sure to spike already robust ticket sales for her tour in a year that marks a renaissance for the artist who many were counting out after her Artpop album stumbled.
Some of the most epic tweets from the event:
That time Gaga’s piano cured bigotry.

That time Gaga invented the LGBT flag.
That time Gaga schooled Beyonce about costume changes.
That time Gaga’s staging was so epic that Bono pissed himself a bit.
