There is no arguing that Lady Gaga has become one of the biggest pop stars of all time, with her talents stretching across several genres of music. From her electronic pop roots to jazz, this lady can really do it all. She has even dabbled in acting, best known for her roles in House Of Gucci and A Star Is Born.

In 2020, she even launched her very own makeup brand, Haus Labs, offering a stunning variety of clean and cruelty-free products. Constantly re-inventing herself, there's seemingly nothing that she can't do.

While doing all of that, Gaga has embarked on a total of 9 tours, including residencies alongside her captivating world tours. Her first tour commenced in 2009 and lasted a total period of six months. The Fame Ball tour grossed $3.15 million; not too bad for a first tour. For the next few years, Gaga would go on to tour, hopping across the globe to perform for her army of Little Monsters, who were clamoring for her at every location.

The Chromtica Ball is Gaga's sixth worldwide tour, and it has been in the pipeline for quite some time. It was originally planned to commence in 2020, just after the release of her comeback pop album Chromatica, however it was delayed due to the unforeseen circumstances of the pandemic.

The Chromatica Ball tour's locations include Düsseldorf (Merkur Spiel-Arena), Stockholm (Friends Arena), Paris (Stade de France), Arnhem (GelreDome) and London (Tottenham Hotspur Stadium). The next few locations that the Chromatica Ball will take Gaga across the pond to Canada and America.

For her current tour, the Bad Romance singer even hired security guards for her wardrobe. This was another exciting sign for fans that the outfits were going to be simply spectacular.

Fans Think There Is A Secret Message To The Chromatica Ball

On July 17th, Gaga marked her first night performing her long-awaited Chromatica Ball tour in Germany. After giving a show-stopping performance, many fans were blown away, and as she hopped around locations, fans have begun to speculate as to what the real meaning behind the setlist is.

One user on Twitter interpreted the show in the following way:

He goes on to explain how she begins the show by 'battling for her life', which is shown by her restrictive movement. At the end of the show, she is finally 'free' and can finally celebrate her victory, which is portrayed through her songs about love and joy.

Much to fans' amazement, Gaga even liked the tweet, suggesting his theory was in fact correct. If he is correct, it would tie in with Gaga's idea for the stage being a 'museum of brutality', as she shared in an Instagram post.

The fan, Michael Murray, goes on to explain how he believes it's of 'her best tours' and goes on to give his seal of approval for the interludes by Nick Knight, labeling them as 'dark' and 'twisted', which ties in well with Gaga's description of her stage design being the 'museum of brutality'.
