Lady Gaga - The Chromatica Ball

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?

She did one jazz show with Tony then he had to cancel so instead of the Albert Hall she did a little impromptu at Ronnie Scott's. So, besides a few Joanne promo moments, yes this was her first headline gig since late 2014 in London (she did the Joanne shows in Birmingham).
I really hope it’s not another 8 years before I see her again. She was outstanding and I hope she’s been inspired out on the road seeing the fans again to make another album soon.

She’s the one. I haven’t really been interested in her over the last year or so or listened to her discography for a while but the second she was on that stage she had me eating out the palm of her hand like I was 17 again.
I feel like a local saying this but, having let it all sink in, I feel like Telephone was my highlight, even though I did love most of the Chromatica tracks (911 was sublime but too short). She just went completely off when performing it on Friday and so did the entire stadium. The only time I’ve seen something similar was Madonna’s Like a Prayer at Sticky and Sweet.
It was by far the most anthemic experience I’ve had at a live show- literally all the ballads felt like they were unifying everyone. And, obviously, her vocals during the ballads were other worldly.
I felt like it was the opposite in Golden Circle. At some points I felt like the only one truly going for it during the Chromatica songs. My feet barely touched the floor nn
Night 1 I felt this in the gold circle too? Felt like I was the only one around me singing the Chromatica songs

I keep thinking about last night and getting choked up (yes gay yes queer!!!). Like … I will actually never recover from this.

Getting to share it with my mother - the woman who’s been my fiercest supporter, advocate, ally in absolutely everything I do - was just so momentous. I keep thinking about watching her getting her life to Born This Way and my heart could honestly just burst.
It's such a weird feeling now that I have finally got to see, in person, one of the most influential artists in my life. Someone who has had such an impact on my youth, who I have bonded with others over listening to her music, someone who has been a soundtrack to so many nights out, parties and good times.

A night I will never forget, and hopefully it won't be too long until we get to see her in concert again. So special.
