Get Ready to Rave
When Lady Gaga played at American Airlines Center earlier this year, it had been nearly three years since the pop/dance icon had a proper concert in the area. Little Monsters won't have to wait nearly that long to see her again, as she'll come back to the AAC on July 17, 2014, as part of her latest tour, artRave: The ARTPOP Ball.
Lady Gaga will hit 25 different cities across North America on the tour, including San Antonio on July 14 and Houston on July 16. The tour will start on May 4 in Fort Lauderdale, around a month after she finishes a historic run of seven straight concerts at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City, the last concerts to ever be put on at that venue.
As per usual, Lady Gaga has been everywhere following the November 6 release of her third album, Artpop. She hosted Saturday Night Live on November 16 and teamed up with the Muppets for another Thanksgiving special, Lady Gaga and the Muppets' Holiday Spectacular.
Strangely enough, Artpop won't even be her latest album by the time Lady Gaga comes to town. Those honors go to Cheek to Cheek, a jazz/big band duets album with Tony Bennett due in January 2014. While the classic Bennett may seem like a strange pairing with the eccentric Lady Gaga, the two have collaborated before on a song on his 2011 album, Duets II.
