LADY GAGA DELIVERS HITS AND LGBTQ SUPPORT AT ‘JOANNE’ TOUR KICK-OFF – (08/03/2017)

Lady Gaga kicked off her Joanne world tour in Vancouver, Canada, Tuesday night, playing a 22-song set full of hits. The theatrical performance included short films, complicated staging, pyrotechnics, lighting masterpieces and some pretty epic outfits.

Gaga performed “Dancin’ In Circles” live for the first time, along with fire, dancing and a tribute to the LGBTQ Community. Halfway through the show, an audience member threw an LGBTQ Pride flag toward the stage and Gaga asked a security guard to hand it to her. “Needless to say, I have a lot to say about this issue,” Gaga told the crowd, which erupted in applause, before quoting lyrics from her song “Come To Mama.”

“But the most important thing that I’ve got to say about it is that everybody’s got to love each other,” she said. “You gotta stop throwing stones at your sisters and your brothers. ’Cause it wasn’t that long ago that we were all just living in the jungle.” Before launching into the song, Gaga drove her sentiment home by telling the crowd, “So, for any of you who don’t believe in equality that are here this evening, come to mama.”

The Joanne tour hits the U.S. on Saturday, when Lady Gaga pulls into Tacoma, Washington. The pop singer is set to play over 50 shows around the world before the end of the year.

JUSTIN BIEBER SHARES NEW FACE TATTOO, SELLING SHIRTS – (08/03/2017)

Justin Bieber now has a small cross tattooed right next to his eye. The Biebs has many tattoos but this is his first to be placed on his face.

Meanwhile, Bieber and his stylist, Karla Welch, announced they’re dropping a collection of repurposed Hanes T-shirts – something she’s been making for the 23-year-old singer to wear on tour for the past year. “He was so fearless,” Welch told Vogue of the tees that inspired the collaboration. “[He said], ‘I want T-shirts that are long,’ and they literally didn’t exist in the marketplace. It was a bit of a nightmare.”

Welch created the tops from “mountains of triple-XL tees,” purchased at Kmart, that she chopped up and remade using her own pattern. The seven variations of the shirt will go on sale Thursday exclusively on the brand’s site, xKarla – and in Los Angeles at a Maxfield store pop-up beginning August 6th. The shirts retail for $30 a pop.

Bieber recently canceled the remaining 14 dates of his Purpose World Tour. When asked about his future plans Bieber said, “Just resting and getting some relaxation. We’re gonna ride some bikes.”

COLDPLAY’S CHRIS MARTIN PLAYS LINKIN PARK’S ‘CRAWLING’ IN HONOR OF CHESTER BENNINGTON – (08/03/2017)

Coldplay kicked off its latest North American stadium tour on Tuesday night (August 1st) at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and during the show frontman Chris Martin paid tribute to late Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington by sitting at the piano to play a stripped-down version of Linkin Park’s Grammy-winning hit “Crawling.”

Martin told the crowd before playing the song, “From time to time we like to do a couple of songs and we’re gonna do one right now. (I) hope that’s okay. It may not sound that great, but it’s meant in good faith. This is to everybody who misses someone you know. This is for our whole community of musicians.”

  • Martin actually started the song a second time after making a mistake, saying, “I know this is probably going to end up on YouTube, so I want to do it right.”
  • Bennington’s bandmate Mike Shinoda shared footage of the tribute on Instagram with the caption, “Thank you @coldplay It sounded beautiful,” followed by an emoji of a person placing their hands together in prayer.
  • Bennington committed suicide on July 20th at his home in Palos Verdes, California, leaving behind a wife and six children.
  • A private funeral service for the 41-year-old singer took place last Saturday (July 29th) near his home. It was attended by five hundred guests, and keepsakes from the service included programs and lanyards similar to the VIP passes handed out at Linkin Park concerts.
