artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball (2014) Joanne World Tour (2017)

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.

Background Edit

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.

Development Edit

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.

As the end of the video countdown approaches, the screen located at the front of she stage rises to reveal a back-lit Gaga on a risen platform in the middle of the stage. She performs the entire song on the platform with a microphone stand among pink lights and smoke. The spotlight hits Gaga during the song's bridge, revealing her face to the audience for the first time. The song ends with Gaga's silhouette just before she removes her jacket.

Two platforms on Gaga's sides rise to her level with female dancers and guitar players. The dancers hand Gaga her guitar and she plays the song as the platforms move up and down. Female dancers perform the choreography while Gaga interacts with her band members. The song ends with Gaga and her guitar players at the front of the stage.

Additionally, Gaga can be heard singing the rest of the song from underneath the stage.

Act III Edit

Just Dance Edit

An extended intro of the song is played. Gaga can be seen rising from a lift at the back of the stage playing her keytar.

When she holds the mask to her face, the sounds of a crowd cheering for her are heard. There are also flashes of her dancing in a fringe ensemble, similar to that which she wore earlier in the show. The video ends with her putting on a black hat as the screen rises.

Act IV Edit

Applause Edit

Before Gaga appears onstage, the DJ White Shadow remix begins to play as the suspended bridges above the crowd are lowered from the ceiling for the first time. For the majority of the song, Gaga and her dancers perform the choreography while crossing the bridges and stopping at the circle stages. The song concludes on the metallic piano stage at the opposite end of the venue.

Come To Mama Edit

Gaga takes a seat at her piano and talks to the audience about equality. By this point, the bridges have been raised back up into the ceiling and flattened out into projection screens. Gaga performs the song at the piano while her dancers surround her and perform minimal choreography. On the screens, live footage of Gaga can be seen surrounded by mouths inside of flowers that sing along with the music.

The Edge Of Glory Edit

Gaga's dancers walk back to the main stage area alongside the crowd. Gaga is left alone at the piano on the B stage where she performs an acoustic rendition of the song. Towards the end of the song, Gaga's dancers return to the B stage.

Born This Way Edit

One of Gaga's dancers places a tulle skirt on her as the intro to the song plays. Gaga is risen up on a platform where she performs the majority of the song with choreography. The bridges are then lowered and she and her dancers return to the main stage. An extended outro of the song is played as Gaga slowly exits the stage.

Trapped Film Edit

The screen on the main stage is once again lowered. Gaga is seen sandwiched between two white walls which gradually begin to close in on her. She can be seen screaming but no sound is heard.

Act V Edit

Bloody Mary Edit

The screen rises as the intro to the song begins. Gaga and her dancers are seen scattered along ramp made of the tilted platforms, with Gaga being at the highest point. The dancers perform the choreography as Gaga slowly makes her way down the ramp, joining them sporadically. During the bridge, Gaga's dancers surround her and remove her oversized coat to reveal a red bodysuit. The song ends with the bridges being lowered from the ceiling and Gaga standing at the front of the stage. During earlier shows, one of Gaga's dancers removed her patented leather blouse. In more recent shows, the blouse is not worn and a red hat with roses hanging from it is placed on her head. The second verse and chorus are cut from the song.

Dancin' In Circles Edit

Gaga and her dancers walk over the bridges to the second circle stage while she talks to the audience about the album. The song is then performed with choreography, which involves Gaga and the dancers twirling around the stage and facing all angles of the arena. About halfway through the song Gaga lets her hair down.

Paparazzi Edit

Gaga sings the first verse of the song a cappella before restarting the song with the music. Gaga and her dancers perform the first verse and chorus with choreography. The instrumental continues to play but Gaga stops singing after the first chorus. She is carried by a dancer onto a bridge and "beaten" by him. The dancers exits to the main stage and Gaga is left lying on the bridge as it ascends into the ceiling. Sirens are heard and emergency red crosses are projected onto the other bridges.

Act VI Edit

Angel Down Edit

The song begins as the bridge descends back down into the arena. Gaga is seen in a spotlight, having made a costume change high above the crowd. The song is performed as the bridge makes its way down to the level of the stages. The second verse and chorus are cut from the song.

Joanne Edit

Gaga makes her way to one of the circular stages where her guitar and a stool are waiting for her. She explains to the audience who Joanne was and the importance of the album's name in her family. She performs the majority of the song on the circle stage and eventually meets two of her guitar players on the main stage to finish off the performance. She and the guitar players play an extended outro to the song.

Paint Film Edit

The screen descends back down to the front of the stage and a black and white close-up of Gaga's face appears. Throughout the video, purple paint is seen dripping in reverse up Gaga's face. At the end of the interlude, Gaga smears the paint all over her face.

Act VII Edit

Bad Romance Edit

The screen rises to reveal Gaga and her dancers on the main stage. Throughout the performance, the platforms rise and tilt with clips from the music video playing underneath them. The song is performed with choreography. At the end of the song, Gaga is left on the only platform that remains higher than the rest of the stage. Her dancers carry her from the platform to the front of the stage where the song ends and sparks and fire are shot from the back of the stage. The French segment of the bridge is cut from the song.

The Cure Edit

Gaga's dancers help her remove her bustier. Gaga usually reads a letter that a fan has thrown onto the stage at this time and proceeds to go into the crowd to hug him/her. She then returns to the stage where she and her dancers perform the song with choreography. By the end of the song, Gaga is the only remaining performer. She says goodnight to the crowd and flashes them a peace sign as she walks off the stage.

Encore Edit

Million Reasons Edit

An extended intro to the song is played as Gaga makes her costume change and walks across the bridges to the piano stage. She thanks the crowd and begins to play the song on the piano. The first and second verse and chorus are played acoustically on the piano. The band joins her for the bridge and final chorus. Gaga stands on her piano and interacts with the crowd during the last chorus. As her piano begins to descend under the stage, she takes off her hat and leaves it on her piano bench. After Gaga has exited the stage, a single spotlight is shined onto the hat before the house lights come on.

Stadium Show Changes Edit

  • A runway connects the main stage to the piano stage. In addition, the circle stages and the bridges were absent.
  • The screen which ascends and descends at the front of the stage is located in a stationary position behind the band.
  • Fireworks are shot into the sky above the stage during select songs.
  • Two portrait style screens are placed on both sides of the stage.
  • Seats are located on the floor, with the general admission pit only around the runway and main stage area.
  • Act V. is completely cut from the set.
  • Gaga performs "Applause" and "Born This Way" on the runway, rather than the bridges and circle stages.
  • Gaga performs "Angel Down" on the main stage.
  • Gaga performs "Joanne" on the runway and the main stage.
  • Rather than leaving her hat on the piano bench, Gaga places it on a mic stand located on the main stage before ending the show.
  • At the Citi Field show on August 29, 2017, the platforms on the main stage were malfunctioning and therefore not used during the show. In addition, Gaga performed in the pouring rain on this night and black piano was used instead of her usual metallic rainbow piano.
