Coachella: Lady Gaga To Replace Beyoncé As The Show’s Headliner
The super-star replacement comes just five days after representatives for Beyoncé informed AEG’s Goldenvoice that the “Formation” singer would not be performing at North America’s highest-grossing annual festival based on her doctor’s advice; Beyoncé could have been in the third trimester of her pregnancy during the double-weekend billing. Beyoncé will instead perform at Coachella in 2018.
Lady Gaga will add the double Coachella slot to her already busy 2017 tour schedule, announced shortly after her critically acclaimed performance at Super Bowl LI in Houston. Gaga’s Joanne World Tour kicks off Aug. 1 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, B.C., and includes three nights at the Forum in Los Angeles as well as stops at iconic stadiums like Wrigley Field in Chicago, Citi Field in New York and Fenway Park in Boston.
