lady gaga has announced plans to embark on a world Tour in support of her current album "Joanne". The singer, who has just performed at the 51st Super Bowl as the half-time headliner to an audience of 110 million, announced the dates soon after finishing her set on her official website.

Gaga tour kicks off in Canada

The tour kicks off in Vancouver, BC on August 1st followed by more North American dates until September 15th, when she is due to headline Rock in Rio Festival, in Rio De Janiero, Brazil.

There is a week break before the European leg of the tour kicks off in Barcelona, Spain on September 22nd.

The UK leg of the tour consists of only 3 dates so far. This is thought to be largely down to the underperformance of "Joanne" and singles in the UK market. However, there are gaps in the tour dates which would cater for extra dates if they are required, with many popular locations such as Dublin (Ireland) and Glasgow not included. The dates are as follows:

9th October: The O2 Arena, London

15th October: Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham

17th October: Manchester Arena, Manchester

How do I get hold of tickets?

There is a pre-sale available to merchandise customers on Wednesday 8th February on her official website.

This is alongside an O2 pre-sale, with both starting at 9 am GMT. LiveNation are hosting their own pre-sale on Thursday 9th February. Tickets go on general sale on Friday 10th February at 9 am.

According to Ticketmaster UK, seated tickets at the O2 Arena start at £133.75. Standing tickets at the O2 are priced at £63.75. Seated tickets for Manchester and Birmingham are priced at £116.75 and standing tickets cost £62.80.

There is a range of VIP Packages, named "Come to Mama", "Dancin' in Circles", "Perfect Illusion", Premium VIP Package and Ultimate Backstage Package.

48 dates now, more in the future?

Upon leaving the UK, Gaga has dates in Denmark, Sweden and Germany before heading back to the US. There are currently 48 dates included in the 3-month tour.

Gaga has experienced a lot of success on her previous tours, including The Monster Ball Tour which was extended several times, boasting 10 legs and 203 dates over an 18-month period. Two more tours, the Born This Way Ball tour and artRAVE: The Artpop Ball Tour followed, the former boasting stadium dates alongside arena dates. Considering her popularity in the past and her reputation for being a formidable live performer, it is highly likely that Gaga will be adding more dates to this tour in the future.
