Welcome to the new episode of the Billboard.com Pop Shop Podcast, Billboard's weekly audio breakdown of the Billboard charts, hottest music news and year's biggest musical events. Casual pop fans and chart junkies can hear Billboard co-director of charts Keith Caulfield and Billboard.com senior editor Katie Atkinson every Tuesday on the Pop Shop Podcast, which can be streamed on Billboard.com or downloaded in iTunes (click here to listen to the previous Tuesday’s edition of the show on Billboard.com).
On the latest episode of the show, we have the perfect independent lady for Independence Day: the one-and-only Lady Gaga! The Mother Monster called up the Pop Shop Podcast to announce the return of the Bud Light Dive Bar Tour. Last fall, Gaga hit bars in three cities before the release of her Billboard 200 chart-topping Joanne album. This time around, she'll play one date in Las Vegas on July 13 before passing the torch to two mystery artists for shows in Los Angeles on July 26 and New Orleans on Aug. 30.
