The Joanne World Tour is the fifth headlining concert tour by Lady Gaga, in support of her fifth studio album, Joanne (2016). The first concerts which are advertised as a part of the tour were on April 15 and 22, 2017 in Indio as part of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, but Lady Gaga's choreographer Richard Jackson revealed that they have nothing in common with the actual tour. The official tour is scheduled to begin on August 1, 2017, in Vancouver, Canada, and conclude on December 18, 2017, in Inglewood, United States. After tickets went on sale, various shows in Europe and North America quickly sold out, prompting additional dates in both continents.
Gaga's fifth studio album, Joanne, was released in October 2016 and 170,000 copies in the US during its first week, becoming her fourth album to reach number one in the nation. As a result, the singer became the first woman to have four US number one albums in the 2010s. A few weeks before the release of Joanne, Gaga began a small promotional tour called the Dive Bar Tour, which visited US city halls. On October 24, 2016, the singer confirmed to Howard Stern that she would embark on a worldwide tour other than the Dive Bar Tour to continue the promotion of the record. She also clarified that it can only begin after her performance at the Super Bowl LI halftime show, that took place on February 5, 2017. Following the halftime show, Gaga announced the Joanne World Tour. Gaga's participation in the Rock in Rio festival in Brazil as only date in South America as well as tour dates for North America and Europe were subsequently revealed. On February 28, 2017, Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festivalannounced Gaga as a main headliner of the festival in Indio replacing initial headliner Beyoncé, who had to cancel her appearance due to pregnancy.
In February 2017, Gaga unveiled a lookbook for the tour, which would be available as part of the merchandise on the tour. The book was a collaboration between London-based creative studio Lobster Eye and merchandising company Bravado. They hired photographer Synchrodogs, and stylist Daria Lagenberg to create the photographs. Models like Stacy Koren and Daria Svertilova posed for the pictures, which showed them in a wood-inspired set. The merchandise consisted of necklaces, scarves and t-shirts, with Alexa Tietjen from Los Angeles Times commenting that "If the lookbook is any indication, the Joanne World Tour just might be Gaga’s most fashionable yet." The merchandise also received positive reviews from Rachel Torgenson who wrote for Cosmopolitan said that the pictures used were reminiscent of "a high-fashion lookbook that is more editorial than the September issues of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Elle combined".
Commercial Performance Edit
According to Live Nation, all the arena dates of the tour had general admission as well as reserved seat tickets listed. Special privileges were provided to Citi bank card holders, who had the opportunity to utilize the pre-sale in cities like Los Angeles and Philadelphia, although there was a limit of 8 tickets per transaction for any buyer. For every ticket sold for the United States shows, Live Nation also announced that US$1 would be given to Gaga's Born This Way Foundation. The company announced that there were high demands for tickets across North America and Europe, when tickets went on for sale on February 13, 2017. All the dates for the North American leg were instantly sold out leading to secondary dates being added in cities like Las Vegas, Inglewood, Toronto and Philadelphia as well as at New York City's Citi Field and Boston's Fenway Park. There were further sold out shows reported for the tour dates in Tacoma, Omaha, Vancouver, Edmonton, San Francisco, Chicago and Montreal among others. Similar demand was observed in Europe where tickets had gone for sell three days earlier, leading to sell-outs. Barcelona, Birmingham, London and Paris were sold out immediately with Live Nation promptly announcing secondary dates. A press release from the company alerted that minimum tickets were available for the dates with the high demand.
