Lady Gaga - The Chromatica Ball

  1. Anyway she was phenomenal. Really no other words to describe tonight. Opening with her 3 biggest songs was genius cause she had the crowd eating out of her hands for the remainder of the show
  2. Oh my god!

  3. The Chromatica logo at the bottom has sent me into hysterics
  4. Obsessed with her spending the first 3 songs on a lazy Susan and then the fourth song on an elevated slab

    Queen of protecting her hip!

  5. Amazing night. Having been to both shows I think the energy was even better tonight. But maybe that‘s just cause I only took 2 videos and enjoyed the rest of the night.

    I screamed at the Vogue Shoutout.

    She also sang Edge of Glory tonight and she started around 8.20 already.

    Saw no signs about filming.

    We left just before Hold My Hand but still many left too but it was much more managable tonight.
  6. Lord knows my body hurts, voice GARNN, cos that’s how hard I went tonight. She was absolutely incredible!!! Got my LIFE tonight

  7. She also adressed that she had to „cancel“ Chromatica ball 2 years ago and even Joanne Tour before. She made a emotional speech how her sister couldn‘t see her anymore but she sees her now (as she was taking off her alien head of course ddd).

    So were this really her first shows since Artrave? Or did she do some Jazz show in London?
  8. I didn’t think anything could top last night, but I thought this evening’s show was heaps better. The atmosphere in the stadium felt completely different. Honestly, what an icon.

  9. LoveGame was a real highlight for me. I’ve never seen her perform it live as my first time seeing her was the Artpop tour and it went all the way off live. Her screams and giving it the full original choreography had me ascending.

  10. I went last night as a casual to medium fan and must say it completely surpassed my expectations. My seats were pretty far back, so I’m not sure if that helped mask any deficiencies in the show, but her dancing was the best I’ve ever seen it. Was there a different choreographer for Stupid Love/Rain on Me? Cos those routines are pretty terrible compared to the rest of the show.

    Some points to note:
    - I was gagged that she didn’t take so much as a step until the 5th song. That has to be a pop concert record?
    - When she finally walks, her legs are up in the air more than they are on the actual stage, from all the jumping in Replay
    - Her outfits were insane. When I say 10/10, I mean 100/10.
    - The interludes were literally Windows Media Player projections with her silhouette thrown in a couple times, sorry gworls
    - The flame throwers burned away my sins
    - Act 3 was truly pop concert perfection
    - The production values oddly just weren’t there? An occasional prop or confetti during ROM would’ve been nice

    Overall I’d give it 4/5. Normally I don’t like stadiums but it was well organised and I was happy not to be in the pit. I even popped out for some chips during the piano section and ate them at my seat. The comfort!

  11. Also her hot German bodyguard is back… yas
  12. I was General Admission last night and got given 2 bracelets too. One on each wrist and I was set for the night!
  13. But will it be released is the real question...
  14. Which interludes? Because there's a ton of Nick Knight films, unless they took them out?

  15. Absolutely insane show tonight. My first ever stadium gig and it was simply incredible. Free Woman into Born This Way gave me a whole new meaning of life.

  16. To be fair there were a lot of like… Getty image flower videos and also graphic distortions of a female figure that looked a little cheap… in addition to the proper video interludes

  17. OH like the "911" stuff. I was a little confused, like there were full films. Hello! I think that was the stuff she was doing the motion capture for

  18. Gaga was AMAZING tonight!! Haven't seen her live since The Monster Ball. Her vocals and star power just shone through. Glad we got "The Edge Of Glory" tonight too. "Lovegame" really went OFF. I loved that.

    Couldn't agree more with you @scottdisick94 with regards to the staging though. My friends and I were all struggling to see (including my housemate who is 6ft)... and that AWFUL branch piano. Whoever came up with that idea needs sacking. It looked great on the screen but nobody on the right hand side could see her. I'd understand if it was a rotating b-stage but it wasn't so the view was blocked for most of that section. Another person I know who was in the lower tier couldn't see her properly either. So even though she was right next to us, we spent most of our time looking at the screen.

    But she was still amazing. So glad I've finally got to see her again... and I'd love to go to her next tour! The "Chromatica" album is SO strong. It really deserved more singles. "Alice" is just superb.

  19. I went last night and the Mexican wave by those in seating was cringe, but the show was incredible from beginning to end.

    I did love the non-reaction by casual attendees only knowing the first two eras, Shallow and perhaps Hold My Hand.

    Okay I’ve had time to process

    After 3 festivals and several gigs in the last 6 months to make up for the last 2 years, that was without a doubt one of the best things I’ve ever witnessed. The energy was incredible, the crowd were eating out of the palm of her hand, the Chromatica songs went the fuck off (yes even Stupid Love!!!!). The staples felt fresh with the live band, extended intros and her being in her rockstar bag. I don’t think I’ve seen her move like that in years? Hearing 43000 people roaring along to Shallow felt like such a moment. I cried after 911. I wept after Born This Way. The only criticism I have is that the stage was a little low and my poor mam could barely see, but that’s it.

    It’s sad to think that this may be her last outing in the UK for what might be years, but what a fucking way to bow out. 10 years after seeing her for the first time at the Born This Way Ball feels so fucking full circle. I’ll be riding this high for a month.

    Oh and dddddd at me going to an after party wearing a skeleton t-shirt and someone asking if I’d been to see Phoebe Bridgers. No bish!!!
