Lady Gaga feared she would ‘never be on stage again’ in heartfelt tweet ahead of Chromatica Ball
As Lady Gaga’s twice postponed Chromatica Ball tour kicks off TONIGHT in Düsseldorf, the superstar tweeted that she worried she would never tour again.
Lady Gaga was devastated when she had to postpone her world tour due to the pandemic and let’s be honest, she doesn’t do things by halves. Suffice to say the Chromatica Ball is a behemoth that could never have been attempted with such stringent Covid-19 restrictions so we can be rest assured it will be worth the wait.
That doesn’t mean that she wasn’t nervous about when it would happen and for a star SO devoted to her Little Monsters, it must have seemed after the second postponement that it was never going to happen.
On Friday, Gaga opened up to her fans on Twitter, reflecting about how ‘there was a time I thought I’d never be on stage again.’ Today she mused on what Chromatica symbolised and at a time when LGBTQ+ people are embattled across the world politically and physically, she truly meant it when she said:
WHAT DOES CHROMATICA MEAN? A BATTLE FOR YOUR LIFE 🖤💋

It’s not like Gaga has been sat there twiddling her perfect pointy-nailed thumbs, of course, having turned out another mesmerising performance in the huge Ridley Scott movie House of Gucci, popping up at the Oscars with Liza Minelli and releasing stunning new track Hold My Hand from one of this year biggest movies Top Gun: Maverick.
It’s on stage that she is truly home though, as anyone who’s seen her live will attest to. In Friday’s tweet she said she’d only ‘overcome my nightmare with love, support, trust, truth, bravery, talent and dedication’.
There was a time I thought I’d never be on stage again. I was so sad I couldn’t even dream anything but a painful nightmare. I’ve overcome my nightmare with love, support, trust, truth, bravery, talent and dedication. I am so grateful. I’ll see you in BABYLON. #ChromaticaBall

One thing we know to be true is that Lady Gaga will be on her very best form, ecstatic to be back on stage again in front of her fans from around the world who have clung onto her music, her love and her light over some of the most difficult years of their lives. It will be a celebration of being together again, hearing the songs from her world-beating album Chromatica and seeing Mother Monster in all her (edge of) glory after SO much time.
The tour kicks off in Dusseldorf tonight and concludes in Miami on September 17. You can get tickets to what will be a breathtaking, barnstorming show as Lady Gaga at last takes to the stage again HERE.
