Last night, Lady Gaga performed the final date of her successful artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball tour at the Bercy Arena in Paris, France. After the show, Gaga hit the streets of Paris in an attention-grabbing inflatable dress.
Gaga’s artRAVE set was streamed live on Yahoo!. She appeared alternately joyful and sad throughout the evening, stopping many times to cry and thank her fans for supporting her through what turned out to be a difficult year. After the show, Gaga tweeted that the live stream had been a huge success:
Incredible job monsters! The Yahoo/Livenation Livestream of the artRave broke records and is the biggest concert stream they’ve had!⚡️

Once the show on stage had ended, the show offstage was just beginning. Gaga then hit the streets of Paris in a sparkly inflatable dress. When inflated, Gaga’s dress makes her look like a literal star, which, of course she is.

While it held up for photographs, by the end of the night, the dress had seen better days:
The show itself was a colorful explosion of lights, energy, music and empowerment. Here are a few highlight’s from Gaga’s final show:

All in all — from the concert to the afterparty — it was a night fit for a bizarre pop queen.
