My girl, Lady Gaga was scheduled to perform artRave: The ARTPOP Ball Tour at the Verizon Center on Thursday May 15th, 2014.
Buuuut that was the same night of a potential Game 6 of the Wizards-Pacers playoff series at the Verizon Center as well.
Soooo – what to do?
They flip flopped the dates with the concert scheduled for Philly on May 12th, so the show will now be in D.C. on May 12th and in Philadelphia on May 15th, now wreaking havoc on all the little monsters in two markets!
And so we whisper….we might now be able to go….the 15th didn’t work for us….but we’re so sorry for fans who are having trouble with the reschedule. Seeing Lady Gaga can be a most powerful experience. Last year when I was sick I watched the Monster Ball Concert many times and it made me feel better. (Although if she has the green vomit performance artist from the SXSW, I’ll have to excuse myself!)
Tickets for the original May 15 show will be honored on the new date; refunds, if required, will be available at the original point of purchase. If you need tickets, there are still some available here.
