Lady Gaga’s Chromatica Ball finally descends upon MetLife Stadium

It feels like a lifetime ago when Lady Gaga, in the darkest days of the pandemic, released “Chromatica” in May 2020.

It was essentially, a way to free yourself from the lockdown of the walls you were climbing and escape to another planet where the clubs were still pumping out beats—instead of hand sanitizer—in a world where masking up and social distancing never existed.

But perhaps Chromatica was a victim of timing: There was only so much an album designed to just dance could do when there was no place to dance.
