Gaga’s third studio album “ARTPOP” topped the Billboard 200 in its first week of sales and includes chart topping hits such as “Applause” and “Do What U Want” that features R&B singer R. Kelly. There are numerous writer and producer credits on “ARTPOP” including DJ White Shadow, will.i.am, Zedd and David Guetta. In celebration of the album, Gaga collaborated with Relative Wave to develop an ARTPOP app for iOS and Android smartphones that offers several features categorized as auras in alignment with the track "Aura" from "ARTPOP." At present, "ArtHaus" and "ARTPOP" are the only areas accessible in the app with "Trackstar" and "GagaTV" to be unveiled at a later date.
The last time Gaga performed in Milwaukee was at BMO Harris Bradley Center in 2010 during her Monster Ball tour. For more information about Gaga at Summerfest visit festival’s website Summerfest.com. For more tour dates, music, and more from Gaga visit LadyGaga.com.
