Although much smaller than her usual Las Vegas residency concerts, Lady Gaga still managed to put on an entertaining show at the Apollo Theater in Harlem. The 33-year-old singer and actress made her debut at this iconic venue on Monday, performing for a select group of celebrities and lucky ticket holders who had connections to the event.
Lady Gaga, the famous pop singer, recently performed at Harlem’s Apollo Theater for a select group of celebrities and fortunate ticket holders. While she has toned down her unconventional style in recent years to align with her country-themed album Joanne and acting role in A Star Is Born, she brought back her earlier fashion choices during her performance. However, she started her show with a relatively conservative appearance compared to her usual bold looks. She donned a wig of long aquamarine and purple hair, matched with one of her own T-shirts, and complemented her outfit with knee-high black boots and fishnet stockings for a touch of punk. Later during her set, she switched to a sequined choker bodysuit after shedding her T-shirt.

In a nutshell: Gaga kicked off the show with a brief acoustic and piano performance of her classic songs. Her Las Vegas residency, which began in December 2018, showcases two different types of concerts – more intimate ‘jazz & piano’ sets where she reinterprets her own music and jazz standards with minimal arrangements, and bigger ‘Enigma’ shows featuring her popular hits and elaborate light shows with backup dancers. To give her Apollo audience a taste of both, she started with a stripped-down set followed by a full-blown production.
