Lady Gaga surprised fans in east London last week with a secret performance at Hackney’s Moth Club, where she joined Mark Ronson to celebrate the release of new single ‘Perfect Illusion’.
On Friday (September 9), Lady Gaga celebrated the release of her new single ‘Perfect Illusion’ by making a surprise appearance at Hackney’s Moth Club.
With word spreading quickly, around 200 fans crammed into the small venue to catch a glimpse of Gaga – even though it hadn’t been confirmed she’d be playing – with some beginning queuing at 9pm to gain entry.
The singer turned up at the club around 1:30am to perform the track and a stripped-back, slowed down version of her hit ‘Bad Romance’.
Before her set, rising band Sweat had held their own gig, which was followed by DJ sets from The Horrors’ Rhys Webb and Mark Ronson.
After she had performed her two songs, Gaga joined Ronson and friends in the DJ booth to the right of stage.
She periodically returned to the stage as Ronson continued to play songs for the eager crowd a little while longer.
Ronson gave ‘Perfect Illusion’, which he produced with Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker and BloodPop, another airing after Gaga had finished ‘Bad Romance’.
He also played Gaga’s 2009 hit ‘Poker Face’ and dropped his 2015 single ‘Uptown Funk’, which he had previously played earlier in the night.
By 1:45am the whole thing was over and fans ventured out into the street to watch Gaga leave the club in her car.
