Westfield – the world’s premier shopping, lifestyle, and entertainment brand – announces an exclusive global event with Grammy award winning artist Lady Gaga online and across its global network of flagship destinations to launch her forthcoming album with Tony Bennett, Love For Sale.
The megastar will stage a streamed performance celebrating jazz classics and her new duets album with Tony Bennett, Love For Sale, ahead of its official launch to the public on 1 October. The partnership with Westfield leverages the company’s virtual presence and physical locations to bring together fans and customers from across the globe in a one of a kind virtual-meets-physical hybrid concert.
The virtual and physical audience will hear Lady Gaga perform several new tracks from the album, either within physical Fan Zones in 21 Westfield centres across Europe and the US, or online, where the experience will also unite fans with a ‘Watch Together’ function where Gaga lovers can meet up online in groups of six in their own private room.
Lady Gaga commented: “I love singing jazz music, and am very excited for everyone to hear my new album with Tony Bennett, Love For Sale. I am grateful to Westfield for helping bring me and my performance to my fans across the world even when I can’t travel to them.”
