Lady Gaga’s Fast-Selling Chromatica Ball World Tour Tops $80M Gross

The trek was rescheduled from 2020 dates with 14 more shows, many of which are at or near sell-outs.

Lady Gaga has sold out 90% of her Chromatica Ball tour and is on track to gross an impressive $4 million per show in the U.S., according to ticket sales reports viewed by Billboard. The successful sales report is welcome news in the concert business, showing the resilience of iconic acts during periods of consumer uncertainty and high oil prices — 14 of the tours 20 shows went on sale in March and have sold quickly.

First announced on March 5, 2020, the Chromatic Ball tour named after Gaga’s sixth studio album, Chromatica, was originally a six-date run that expanded to 17 dates when new shows were added the original routing in March. Last month, three more east coast dates were added, including an Aug. 26 stop in Atlanta and Aug. 28 in Hershey, Penn.

So far, the tour has generated over $80 million in gross ticket sales with many markets here and overseas sold out, according to sales data viewed by Billboard, including Dusseldorf, London, Japan and Boston. Paris, Stockholm, Arnhem, Los Angeles, Toronto, Chicago and New York are all well positioned for a strong final sales push.

“Europe is over 88% sold with 70,000 tickets sold in Paris, 76,000 in London and opener in Düsseldorf, Germany completely sold out,” says Arthur Fogel, president of global touring and chairman for concerts at Live Nation. “Toronto is sold out, New York is basically sold out, Wrigley Field is sold out. Tokyo’s two shows at the Tokyo Dome are sold out — it’s amazing.”

Fogel says his only disappointment so far is “that we don’t have more time to add more shows,” based on Lady Gaga’s busy schedule in 2022. In April, Gaga staged nine performances of her Jazz & Piano residency at the Park MGM hotel and casino in Las Vegas. The Chromatica Ball launches July 17 in Düsseldorf and ends Sept . 17 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
