Lady Gaga Debuts Seven Songs on First Night of the Chromatica Ball

Lady Gaga kicked off her much-anticipated ‘Chromatica Ball’ tour in Düsseldorf, Germany, last night (July 17), giving a string of songs their live debut

The singer premiered her new show at the Merkur Spiel-Arena to over 54,000 fans, performing a 20-song setlist that included first-time live performances of “Alice,” “Replay,” “Sour Candy,” “Babylon,” “Free Woman,” and “Enigma.”

Gaga also performed a rendition of her Top Gun Maverick single “Hold My Hand” for the first time in the encore, also playing her 2009 hit “Monster” for the first time in eight years.

The tour comes in support of Gaga’s 2020 album Chromatica, which was scheduled to kick off in July 2020 but faced a string of delays due to Covid-19.

The Chromatica Ball tour continues in Stockholm, Sweden, on July 21, stopping off in Paris and Arnhem before arriving in London for two dates at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on July 29-30.

Gaga will kick off the North American leg of the tour in August, starting in Toronto and finishing up in Miami on September 17.

Before the show, Gaga shared a video from backstage in which she spoke about its meaning and her nerves as she returns to the stage for her first tour since 2018.

Posting to Twitter after the show, Gaga wrote: “I love you all so much and missed you thank you for a show I will never forget I’m a monster for life and even monsters can heal.”
