Lady GaGa’s solo plans and the joint venture of Martina McBride and Trace Adkins are both in the daily tour recap for October 5, as compiled by TicketNews.
Up-and-coming star Lady GaGa may be without a co-headlining tour partner, but she’s not without a tour. The pop musician announced recently that she will headline her own outing later this year, despite the cancellation of her planned dates with Kanye West.
Supporting acts have not yet been named for the venture, but Lady GaGa stated that the first dates will start just a week after the Fame Kills Tour was set to begin. The routing will also hit many of the same cities, according to the pop star, but details are still scarce on the actual course and timing of the trek.
That’s the complete concert report from TicketNews for this Monday. More artists have updated their tour itineraries, though, and you can catch the best in brief below:
Martina McBride and Trace Adkins are teaming up for the Shine All Night Tour, which is set to run from late 2009 through spring 2010, at least.
