Lady Gaga was bumped from an intimate set at a Melbourne club in favor of a local rock act. Gaga had booked the set to celebrate the final show of the Australian leg of her Born This Way Ball tour.
However, the city's Cherry Bar, insisted that Gaga would have to be off the stage by 9 PM, so that Jackson Firebird, a local two-piece act, could take the stage.
"We honour our existing bookings to local acts," club co-owner James Young told The Age.
Young said Gaga's band and crew enjoyed "a great relationship with Cherry over previous tours. They've come in night after night, stayed very late and had a ball. So the band approached us about having a tour after-party here."
In this instance, Young would not budge on the 9 PM finish time and Gaga and her crew had to take their party elsewhere.
