Lady Gaga‘s Chromatica Ball just got bounced again — clear into next year.
The stadium tour was initially scheduled for the summer of 2020, but rescheduled until this summer due to the pandemic. But on Wednesday, Gaga issued a statement delaying the Ball yet again, saying, “While some parts of the world are moving quickly to open up, others are not yet ready. So until we can confirm all global dates, we have to postpone the Chromatica Ball shows to the summer of 2022.”
As of now, new dates have not been announced, but the North American shows are still expected to take place in Boston, Chicago, Toronto and East Rutherford, New Jersey. (Variety)

Elton John tells Billboard magazine that he’s more interested in being a father than putting out new music. “I don’t think we are in a time where the world needs a new Elton John album. I don’t feel inspired to write or compose anything either. Right now I am a full-time father and I love it. I love being a father.”
