SiriusXM has announced that Lady Gaga will perform at Harlem’s world famous Apollo Theater for a special invitation-only concert for SiriusXM subscribers and Pandora listeners on Monday, June 24th.

Howard Stern made the announcement during the live Wednesday (May 22nd) broadcast of The Howard Stern Show on SiriusXM.
The exclusive SiriusXM concert marks the first time that Lady Gaga will perform at the iconic venue and her first concert in New York City in almost two years. Fresh off the latest run of her Las Vegas residency, Enigma, at the Park Theater, Park MGM, Lady Gaga’s concert at the Apollo will feature Lady Gaga performing her worldwide hits.
The special performance will air in its entirety on SiriusXM Hits 1, Howard Stern’s Howard 101 channel, as well as Pandora NOW, the SiriusXM channel that harnesses the power of Pandora’s extensive listener data and SiriusXM’s curatorial expertise. Select highlights from the concert will also be available to Pandora listeners via user-generated playlists and curated stations.
“Performing at The Apollo has always been a dream of mine,” states Lady Gaga. “Thank you to SiriusXM and Pandora for inviting me. I’m excited for my fans to see a special show at this iconic venue.”
“After getting her start in New York City, Lady Gaga went on to conquer the world with her talent. We are thrilled to have Lady Gaga perform this exclusive show at the world famous Apollo Theater in her hometown as we celebrate SiriusXM and Pandora as one company,” says Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SiriusXM. “SiriusXM subscribers and Pandora listeners will get the opportunity to be part of this once in a lifetime musical experience and we can’t wait.”
