Her first SXSW performance...
Rolling Stone reports that Lady Gaga will perform at Stubb's at this year's South by Southwest festival on the Doritos #BoldStage. She will perform on March 13. Fans who want to attend have to complete a "series of bold challenges issued online". It will be Gaga's first SXSW performance and will benefit the Born This Way Foundation.
She said: "The ARTPOP performance at SXSW will be a completely one-off set and experience. I've been dreaming of this moment. It's all about the music and the connection with the crowd, and I want the audience in Austin to see me live in a way I never have before. I love theatrics, but I started out singing at a piano with a Bud Light in a bikini. Performing at Stubb's is a real blast from my past, I can't wait to celebrate with the audience how far music can go when we believe and stick together. It's moments like these that I live for."
She posted a video online telling fans how they can win tickets to the show. She told her fans to "share a picture or video that expresses their individuality through a bold action," using the hashtags #BoldBravery and #BoldStage and uploading it to Instagram, Twitter or Vine. Winners will get an all-expenses paid trip to her show. Other "bold" missions will be provided by Doritos on site.
Gaga added: "There are personal brave moments when you face one person, and brave moments that help change the world, when you face many. Both are equally as important. My bravest acts have been the conceptual choices I've made when writing music. Whether I'm fighting for equal rights with Born This Way or fighting for creativity and art with ARTPOP, I'm always aware of the many I will face in opposition. With ARTPOP, I hope to inspire the audience at SXSW to cherish their individual talents. This simple act keeps music and art alive in a very commercial world."
