HOUSTON — Fresh off her high-wire, crowd-pleasing halftime performance at the Super Bowl, Lady Gaga has announced plans for a world tour kicking off this summer.

Gaga posted news of the Joanne World Tour on Twitter late Sunday night. The 48-date tour starts on Aug. 1 and will bring her high-energy act to several U.S. baseball stadiums, including Boston’s Fenway Park on Friday, Sept. 1.

In her Super Bowl halftime performance Sunday night, Lady Gaga dropped from the top of Houston’s NRG Stadium to open her show and offered a spectacle of singing, dancing, lights and pytrotechnics.

She was patriotic from the start, opening with snippets of “God Bless America” and “This Land is Your Land” with red and blue lights twinkling above her, before guide wires delivered her to the stage below. Her hit “Born This Way” became a gay rights anthem but in the context of Sunday’s show fit into the idea of accepting differences, a thread through much of the game’s commercial messaging.

President Trump’s name didn’t come up. Gaga’s most notable ad-lib? Saying hi to mom and dad.

Tickets to the general public for the Fenway show go on sale Monday, Feb. 13, at 10 a.m. on redsox.com/ladygaga.
