Beyonce is pregnant with twins. Who is her pinch hitter? By now, just about everyone knows that Beyonce and her husband, Jay Z, are pregnant with twins! Based on her doctor’s advice, five days ago she had to back out of Coachella with many fans disappointed, even more so when concert promoters said they would be offering no refunds. But get ready to do a happy dance because guess who’s replacing Bey Bey? Lady Gaga!
That’s right, late last night the Lady herself tweeted a poster of an updated version of the lineup for Coachella and said, “Let’s party in the desert!” She’ll be headlining both weekends on Saturday nights, April 15th and 22nd.
ICYDK, Coachella takes place each year at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, California. Since 1999, it has showcased both established musical artists in addition to new talent and reunited groups. This year, in addition to Lady Gaga, others in the lineup include Lorde, Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar, XX, Bon Iver, New Order, DJ Snake, Empire of the Sun, Bicep, Breakbot, Big Gigantic, Bastille, John Misty, Car Seat Headrest, Four Tet, Survive, Future Islands, Kaytranada, Real Estate, Mitski, Whitney, Preoccupations, Banks & Steel, Schoolboy Q and many others! Coachella is one of the most famous and profitable concerts worldwide with 198,000 tickets sold in 2016 and a gross intake of $94 million!
Lady Gaga’s stage production is said to be absolutely huge so concert organizers are in final talks to bring her entire production to Coachella. And it was important to the Coachella organizers that a female performer replace Bey Bey. A female artist has not headlined Coachella since Bjork did in 2007.
For those of you who will be missing Beyonce, rest assured that she will be performing at the desert concert in 2018!
Will YOU be attending Coachella 2017? We can hardly wait for the fashion, food, music and fun!
