Lady Gaga to make live return at iTunes festival in September?

Apple has refused to comment on reports that the singer has been added to the line-up

Apple has refused to comment on speculation that Lady Gaga will make her live return at this Autumn’s iTunes Festival at London’s Roundhouse.

The singer, who has spent most of 2013 recovering from hip surgery will, according to The Sun, play as part of the festival to launch her new album ‘Artpop’, which is due for release in 2014. The newspaper reports that her team Haus of Gaga will be spending £500,000 on the show at the 3,300 capacity venue.

However, Apple refused to comment on the report this morning (July 11). “Apple does not comment on rumour or speculation,” a spokesperson told NME.
