One pop superstar will step in for another at Coachella: Lady Gaga has been confirmed to replace a pregnant Beyoncé.
Gaga, fresh from her energetic Super Bowl halftime performance in February, will perform at the Californian desert festival April 15 and 22, joining fellow headliners Radiohead (April 14 and 21) and Kendrick Lamar (April 16 and 23).
The “Perfect Illusion” singer tweeted:
Beyoncé stepped down from her headline slot at Coachella last week under advice from doctors. She will instead perform in 2018.
“Following the advice of her doctors to keep a less-rigorous schedule in the coming months, Beyoncé has made the decision to forgo performing at the 2017 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival,” the star’s Parkwood Entertainment and Coachella organizers Goldenvoice said in a statement.
The singer announced in early February she is pregnant with twins.
For now, we’ll just have to watch Queen Bey’s incredible Grammys performance on repeat until she’s ready to return.Try Newsweek: Subscription offers
