LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The potential conflict between a Washington Wizards home playoff game and a Lady Gaga concert has been avoided.
Lady Gaga’s “artRAVE the ARTPOP Ball” concert has been rescheduled to May 12 to allow for a potential Game 6 between the Wizards and Indiana Pacers in their Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series on May 15.
Tickets purchased for the original May 15 show will be honored for the May 12 date, and Verizon Center officials said refunds will be made available if needed.
The Verizon Center issued a statement apologizing to Lady Gaga fans:
“We apologize to Lady Gaga and to her fans for any inconvenience in having to reschedule her show at Verizon Center,” said senior vice president and general manager of Verizon Center David Touhey. “We also want to thank her and her fans for their flexibility and understanding. Lady Gaga has been extremely accommodating in working with us to reschedule her tour date given the Wizards potential playoff game, and we are looking forward to her show.”
