Lady Gaga’s long-awaited Chromatica Ball was first announced ahead of the release of her sixth studio album, also titled Chromatica, in May 2020. However, the international run of shows was subsequently put on hold — along with the rest of our plans — due to coronavirus closures.
Now, the rescheduled tour date has been pushed back once more, to 2022, due to the lingering threat of the virus. “While some parts of the world are moving quickly to open up, others are not yet ready,” reads a statement from the singer to fans. “So until we can confirm all global dates, we have to postpone The Chromatica Ball shows to the summer of 2022.”
The world tour was initially announced in March last year, scheduled to run from July 25 to August 27, and spanning stadiums in Paris, London, Boston, Toronto, Chicago, and New Jersey. The dates remained the same when it was postponed to 2021, though Variety notes that the specific dates for the newly-delayed shows are yet to be listed.
