The Joanne World Tour is the fifth headlining concert tour by American singer Lady Gaga, in support of her fifth studio album, Joanne (2016). It began on August 1, 2017, in Vancouver, Canada and is scheduled to conclude on December 18, 2017, in Inglewood, United States.
The tour plans to visit most major U.S. markets including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Detroit, Washington DC, Atlanta and Dallas along with Canadian stops in Edmonton, Montreal and Toronto. During the fall, Gaga will head to South America and Europe for additional tour dates.
The singer explained that she wanted to have a slowed-down section during the Joanne World Tour, so that she was able to really connect with each person in the most intimate way that I can, like it would be in a dive bar.
For every ticket sold for the United States shows, Live Nation announced that US$1 would be given to Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation.
