Good news, Lady Gaga fans! After Beyonce dropped the sad news that she cannot perform at the Coachella 2017, netizens speculate who can best fill Queen B’s shoes. News reports reveal that Coachella organizers tapped Lady Gaga to perform this year.
Lady Gaga To Headline Coachella 2017
Coachella 2017 just became more exciting this year! Daily News reports that Lady Gaga will replace Beyonce for the weekend festival. The outlet notes that the American Horror Story star will perform on April 15 and 22 at the Empire Polo Grounds.
The source notes that Coachella’s organizers were looking for a female performer to fill in the Lemonade singer’s slot. Lady Gaga will be the second female singer to perform for the music and arts festival. The very first female performer was singer Bjork in 2007.
Billboard reports that the official announcement has not been made because they are still finalizing the negotiations with the Poker Face singer. According to the outlet’s source, once Lady Gaga’s huge stage production is agreed upon, the organizers will make the official announcement.
