Pop superstar Lady Gaga will perform a special invitation-only show at New York City’s iconic Apollo Theatre next month, hosted by SiruisXM and Pandora.
The streaming service and radio platform, which merged for $3.5 billion earlier this year, will offer Sirius’ subscribers and Pandora listeners the chance to win tickets to the show. Qualified subscribers will receive an email, and new listeners will be able to enter a contest that not only includes tickets to the concert, but a complete trip to New York as well. Those who aren’t invited to the performance, however, will be able to watch the show on SiriusXM’s channel Hits 1, Howard Stern’s Howard 101 channel, or Pandora’s NOW channel.
“Performing at the Apollo has always been a dream of mine,” Gaga said in a statement. “Thank you to SiriusXM and Pandora for inviting me. I’m excited for my fans to see a special show at this iconic venue.”
Harlem’s Apollo Theatre, which opened back in 1914, has been a staple in New York City’s music community for years, hosting artists like Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Mariah Carey, Lauryn Hill, The Isley Brothers, and Guns N’ Roses. Each year, the venue brings in an estimated 1.3 million guests. Gaga is the latest to artist to perform a special SiriusXM show at the venue; previously, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, and U2 have taken the stage for a show hosted by the radio giant.
Gaga is currently performing two separate residencies in Las Vegas: Enigma, where she plays a variety of her hit songs, and Jazz and Piano, where she performs stripped-down renditions of her work. Last year, she starred in the Oscar Award-winning film A Star Is Born, and produced the soundtrack with Bradley Cooper, which includes the award-winning Best Original Song “Shallow.” Her latest LP, Joanne, dropped in 2016.
