Gaga is shown grooving to “Beautiful Day” in the VIP section from video captured at the show. This was not the gloriously gowned star of “Jazz + Piano,” walking in to command attention. Gaga showed up in a gray-flannel shirt, black shirt and shorts.
Bono reportedly called out the Dolby Live headliner from the stage during the show’s acoustic set, reportedly calling out, “I better sing these notes right, Lady Gaga is in the house tonight.”
Unconfirmed reports, and relying on our own brand of facial recognition, indicate actors George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Richard Kind; Pearl Jam legend Eddie Vedder; and sports broadcaster Joe Buck were also in that eclectically populated suite.
Gaga has joined U2 on stage previously, at Madison Square Garden in July 2015 during the Nelson Mandela tribute “Ordinary Love.” The superstar recording artist and actor has just released “Sweet Sounds of Heaven” the new single from the Rolling Stones’ “Hackney Diamonds” album, due Oct. 20.

Friday, Gaga dropped in to Katy Perry’s “Play” show at Resorts World Theater. AEG Presents officials have confirmed she was there. At this writing, neither artist has posted or commented about the visit.

Gaga has just closed her latest latest run of “Jazz + Piano.” We expect her to return in the spring. Perry has seven shows left in her remarkably inventive “Play” production.
Perry is planning a new album and global tour in ‘24, but said Saturday, “Of course wanna go and release ‘KP6’ and do other things and go on a world tour, and I’m so excited for when that day comes, but right now I’m so grateful and so, so present in these last seven shows.”
‘Postcard’ draws celebs
Oprah Winfrey made her second (that we know of) trip to The Sphere on Friday for the premiere of “Postcard From Earth.” Pitt, “Better Call Saul” actor Rhea Seehorn, supermodel Hilary Rhoda, filmmaker Ava DuVernay (“Middle of Nowhere,” “Selma”), and “Orange Is the New Black” co-star Natasha Lyonne were all in the house.
