In an interview with The Sun (via NME), Lady Gaga said that she will debut seven new songs in concert tomorrow night. She kicks off the iTunes Festival at the Roundhouse in London. It will be her first performance since she was forced to cancel her tour in February due to a hip injury that needed surgery.
She said: "I came to the UK because I love performing here. There are 30 performers over the next month and I get to be the first at the iTunes festival - why would I come back anywhere else? I'm playing seven new songs but I've kept some back for later in the year. I am just relieved to be back and playing new music. I spent a fortune on rehearsals because I want things to be right come the big night. The Roundhouse is a famous venue and I want to make it special for the fans."
She also talked about how her new album ARTPOP would play on stage. She added: "It is meant to be a more intimate experience with the record - this next album will scale up and down live. It can go huge and strip right back. I think what will surprise people the most about this album and Sunday is that I know I am part of an era of artists and celebrities who are obsessed with fame in that way, but I am all about the music and the fantasy of performance. I am a student of Bowie and Bolan and Freddie Mercury. If we could get in a time machine and go back to what they were doing, they would say the exact same thing."
She also mentioned in the interview that she was "not in it for the fame".
