MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Lady Gaga headlines Summerfest on Thursday, June 26th — with a show starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Marcus Amphitheater.

The special guest for the show is Crayon Pop.

Having sold nearly 4 million tickets during her first 3 tours, the “Applause” continues as multiple stops of Lady Gaga’s new tour artRave: The ARTPOP Ball sold out within hours of public on-sales.

Gaga has gained numerous awards and nominations for a string of hits.

Her first album spawned several smash hits.

While touring the album Gaga wrote ‘The Fame Monster’, an EP examining the darker side to her new-found fame.

The Fame Monster was released in 2009 and won multiple awards, spawning her most iconic single ‘Bad Romance’ as well as ‘Telephone’ and ‘Alejandro’.

During this time Gaga came under increased public and critical scrutiny for her eccentric and often bizarre style choices.

Gaga embarked on her second tour, The Monster Ball upon finishing in May 2011. The critically acclaimed and commercially accomplished tour ran for over one-and-a-half years and grossed $227.4 million, making it one of the highest-grossing concert tours of all time and the highest-grossing for a debut headlining artist.

In 2011, Gaga released her second full-length album ‘Born this Way.’

The album was received vastly more critically than her previous two for touching on themes of politics, sexuality, and religion.

Despite this, the album’s songs were praised critically, and Born This Way sold 1.108 million copies in its first week in the US, debuting atop the Billboard 200, and topping the charts in more than 20 other countries.
