About the Monster Ball 1.0 ...

papergangstas

Why didn't Gaga perform Telephone on the Monster Ball 1.0? She released TFM before her 1.0 Tour started and I think during that time it was even known that Telephone would be the second single. Like, why would she snub Telephone from her 1.0 setlist, but perform Fashion (2009), Paper Gangsta and Eh, Eh? :oprah: She performed all of the other 7 songs from the album, but not Telephone :oprah:

Maybe she was salty that Britney's management refused Telephone, and her team made her record it and put Beyonce on it for sales, and therefore she snubbed it on her 1.0 tour before they forced her to release it as a single and it became a hit and then she had to perform it on her 2.0 Tour :bear: you never know :bear:

 

edit: I always had this gut feeling that she was forced to put Telephone on TFM to have a "safe" single that will gain popularity due to it's sound and obviously Beyonce, but she never really wanted it.

Maybe it didn't fit anywhere in the setlist? The only place I can see it is somewhere in the Boys Boys Boys/Paper Gangsta/Poker Face section

For some reason, I just don’t see telephone fitting that version of the tour. Along with Eh eh. It’s one of my favorite moments of the arena tour though

Maybe she was just keeping the premiere live performance for its single era :shrug:

If I recall correctly, she was kinda weird about performing Telephone at first. Pretty sure her first live performance was her Jonathan Ross set, months after the album dropped. An iconic performance, nevertheless!

If I remember correctly, she didn't perform it at Monster Ball 2.0 until after the video dropped. I think she may have been keeping everything a surprise (but I can't remember).

She performed it on the first night of the arena version, however they didn't have the instrumental so you could barely hear her actually singing the track. She just didn't perform it on the theatre version for some reason. 

all on my own, i'm a toxic innovator with my trigger finger resting on the incinerator

The video dropped a week or so before the 2.0 tour started

She was definitely saving until it became a single/ video came out... maybe the choreo hadn't been decided when 1.0 started

I know she didn’t but this literally sounded like playback 

 

Also this wig and Outfit. A mess. I can’t at how the tour evolved over it’s lifespan :firega:
