In the days that followed Conchita Wurst’s victory at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015, many international names expressed their congratulations and support for the bearded drag queen.
While Elton John and Cher expressed their feelings on Twitter, Lady Gaga has taken an extra step, asking Conchita to join her latest tour.
The “artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball” is set to start its European leg on September 16 in Istanbul, Turkey. It is unclear if Lady Gaga wants Conchita to be her opening act for just the one show or for more dates on the tour.
The tour will hit Vienna on November 2, by playing the Vienna Stadthalle, the most likely venue for Eurovision 2015.
UPDATE: Conchita Wurst publicly refuted the rumors on Twitter, denying any invitation to join Lady Gaga’s tour.
