Lady Gaga brought her “Joanne World Tour” to Chicago this past weekend and made history in the process. The singer headlined Wrigley Field Friday, making her the first ever female artist to headline the home of the Chicago Cubs.
Wrigley has been hosting concerts at the ballpark for 12 years, with everyone from Billy Joel, to Pearl Jam, to Bruce Springsteen headlining but up until Gaga no woman has ever graced the stage.
“Somebody told me tonight that I had the great honor of being the first woman ever to headline Wrigley Field,” Gaga told the crowd. “I feel so proud to stand here with so much dignity, but I have to say, I’m so sorry that you have not had a woman here for more than 100 years. How dare they? Welcome to the mother**king womb.”
Next up, Gaga brings her “Joanne World Tour” to New York’s Citi Field tonight and tomorrow.
