Update #4- The DC show reschedule has finally been announced! Lady Gaga will be performing at 8 p.m, September 29, at Dar Constitution Hall. Click here for details. No word yet on whether or not tickets to the previous show will be good at the new venue. I will update once again when I get word on this.
Update #3- Still no word on the DC show, but there is an announcement out regarding the show at The National in Richmond, VA:
"The Lady Gaga show originally scheduled for April 3rd, 2009 and then moved to The National has been rescheduled for the Landmark Theater on September 24th @ 8pm. All previously purchased tickets for both the Toad's show and The National show (Etix, Plan 9, BK Music, The National Box Office, and Ticketmaster) will be honored on the new date without exchange (all tickets are general admission). Additional general admission tickets will go on sale THIS Friday April 10th at 10am at the Landmark Theater Box Office and all Ticketmaster outlets. Refunds for previously purchased tickets will be available at the point of purchase. "Click here for more details.
Update #2- I've just learned that an official announcement regarding the rescheduled dates/venues, etc. will be out next week, so hold tight. I'll update this post as soon as the announcements are made.
UPDATED: Read Lady Gaga's apology to her fans here. She said the reason for cancelling her shows was because of illness, not American Idol.
Of particular importance to me though, is this statement:
"...the shows have now been moved to bigger venues. for more dancing, more sweating, and more of my props to fit on stage."So what does that mean for those with tickets to the original venues? As soon as I find out more I will update.
Also, Chester French, who was going to be opening for Lady Gaga (and who I was going to interview post-show....see below), may not be at the rescheduled performance now, according to their comments on their site.
I will try to set something else up with them if that ends up being the case.
I was hoping so badly that this was an April Fool's Day joke. But, unfortunately, it's not. Lady Gaga's DC show at the 9:30 Club has been rescheduled for an as-yet-unknown date. Rumor has it that the reason is due to her appearance on American Idol tonight.
The good news is that I will be interviewing Lady Gaga's opening act, Chester French, whenever the show is rescheduled. So in addition to the concert review, I'll be posting the interview as well.
Have any questions you want me to ask Chester French for you? Just let me know in comments.
And if you haven't heard their AWESOME song "She Loves Everybody" yet, check it out right here:
These guys are hilarious, too. I think I'm going to love chatting with them, especially after watching this interview they did with Young Hollywood.
