Lady Gaga Returns to Her Roots as She Plays Intimate Show at New York City Bar
Lady Gaga returned to her roots Thursday night in New York City where she performed at The Bitter End, the same venue where she performed before hitting superstardom.
The popstar took the stage at the legendary Greenwich Village venue where she launched her career more than 10 years ago in her burlesque group, Lady Gaga and the Starlight Revue.
During her show Thursday night at the iconic club — which also helped launch the careers of Bob Dylan, Bill Cosby and Patti Smith — she climbed onto the balcony and sang for hundreds of adoring fans who lined the always-packed Bleecker Street.
She performed with producer and hitmaker Mark Ronson, who helped her on her latest record, Joanne, which was released Friday.
The audience inside the venue was filled with industry personnel, fans and famous faces like Robert De Niro and Helen Mirren. The concert is part of her Bud Light-sponsored "Dive Bar Tour," where she is playing random bars across the country unannounced.
On Friday morning, she took to Instagram to thank everyone who came out.
There were so many fans that shut down Bleecker St. last night during our dive bar show at The Bitter End. I couldn't leave without singing to you, the bar was to small to fit you all! Was so awesome to connect with you on release night like that in my hometown from the rooftop of the place I began this whole journey when I was 15 playing out in NY as a singer/songwriter.
