Lady Gaga’s triumphant, drone-filled, subtly Trump-bashing comeback show at yesterday’s Super Bowl LI will be followed by a 48-date world tour.

The Joanne world tour, produced by Live Nation’s Global Touring division, kicks off at the Rogers Arena (18,630-cap.) in Vancouver on the 1 August, taking in arenas and stadia in North America and Europe – and a solitary festival date at Rock in Rio in Brazil on 15 September – and wrapping up at Salt Lake City’s Vivint Smart Home Arena (19,911-cap.) on 14 December.

No Asian or Australasian dates have yet been announced. A full list is available on Gaga’s website.

Lady Gaga’s last headlining tour, 2014’s ArtRave: The Artpop Ball, was the seventh highest-grossing of the year. The Cheek to Cheek tour in 2015, co-headlined with Tony Bennett, failed to place in the top 100.

She was then represented in North America by WME, but switched to CAA in January 2016.
