Lady GaGa spits fire from her breasts at Glastonbury

Singer brings her 'Poker Face' to Worthy Farm

Lady Gaga‘s Glastonbury set saw her spit ‘flames’ from the breast area of her costume near the end of her show tonight (June 26).

The star’s performance involved numerous costume changes and a typically provocative anecdote about topless festival-going as she played an 8pm (BST) slot on the Other Stage.

The singer began her set with ‘Paparazzi’, emerging from a silver case, opened up by dancers to reveal her sporting a silver, robot-style sparkly dress.


The New York musician played an enormous keytar to end the song while standing on a revolving platform that span round to reveal her buttocks to the crowd, inducing a ripple of cheering.

The singer was playing with a new backing band for the first time in public, leaving them to play an instrumental jam while she underwent a costume change. She returned to play ‘Boys Boys Boys’ wearing a red outfit covered in spikes, flanked by a pair of mopeds on stage.

After the song, Lady Gaga told a story about how she once watched Iggy Pop at a festival while topless, adding that, “I saw him in a hotel but I was too embarrassed to go up and tell him”.

Following another costume change into a nipple-revealing black outfit she donned a bra that fired sparkle-flames from her breast area when she sang the chorus to ‘Eh Eh’.

Lady Gaga ended her set with a rendition of ‘Poker Face’ on piano wearing a bubble-laden outfit, followed by the full version of the song.

Lady Gaga played:


‘Love Game’
‘Boys Boys Boys’
‘Money Honey’
‘Just Dance’
‘Dirty Rich’
‘The Fame’
‘Eh Eh’
‘Poker Face (piano version)’
‘Poker Face’
