Earlier this week, we learned that there were some changes to the Coachella music festival line-up. Some big changes.
Looks like Beyoncé isn't headlining the music festival anymore after word got out that she postponed her performances due to the announcement that she was pregnant with twins. She would have been in her third trimester the weekend of the music festival. Instead, she will headline Coachella in 2018. Her replacement, however, is another big name in the music industry.
Musician Lady Gaga will headline Coachella both weekends and will fill in for Beyoncé on April 15 and April 22.
Lady Gaga has added Coachella to her already busy 2017 schedule. She begins her Joanne World Tour on August 1 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. Coachella organizers thought it was important to find another female artist to perform. This will mean that Lady Gaga will be the first female performer to headline Coachella since BJORK back in 2007.
Lady Gaga is a world renowned singer-songwriter. Her debut album The Fame (2008) was an overnight success with singles such as “Just Dance” and “Poker Face.” Her follow-up EP The Fame Monster (2009) gave us songs like, “Bad Romance,” “Telephone” and “Alejandro”. Her second album, Born This Way, topped the charts in more than 20 countries. In 2013, her third album, ArtPop, again topped the charts with her successful single “Applause."
Since then, Lady Gaga has been seen on the popular television series American Horror Story: Hotel for which she won a Golden Globe Award for her performance. In 2016, the pop superstar released her fifth album, Joanne. Since 2010, Gaga has been one the first female performers to have released four U.S. number one albums. More recently, she headlined the Super Bowl Ll halftime show.
Coachella Music Festival will run April 14-16 and April 21-23.
