Five days ago Beyoncé withdrew from her Coachella performance due to her doctor’s orders, but you don’t have to return your tickets just yet because there are reports that another powerful female performer will take her place and it’s Lady Gaga.
Lady Gaga will be performing on April 15 and 22 at the Empire Polo Grounds in California. Billboard also reports that they are already finalizing how they will bring in her huge stage production. I’m guessing there will be flying involved like her Super Bowl performance or even hundreds of drones.
“It was important to Coachella organizers that a female performer replace Beyoncé,” an insider tells Billboard. As mentioned before, this will make Lady Gaga the first woman to headline the festival after Bjork in 2007.
There’s no official statement from the organizers of Coachella or Lady Gaga just yet, but sources say that they “will make the announcement in the coming days.”
