Lady Gaga asked her audience to call her "Joanne" during the first night of her three-city tour.

The 30-year-old singer songwriter started her Bud Light x Lady Gaga Dive Bar performances in Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday (05.10.16), but prior to plaing tracks from her latest album 'Joanne', which was named after her late aunt, the 'Bad Romance' hitmaker requested the concert-goers do her "one favour" and not call her Lady Gaga, according to The Rolling Stones website.

Speaking at the gig, the blonde beauty said: "If you could do me this favour. Tonight if you could just call me 'Joanne.'"

Prior to the concert all phones and mobile devices were confiscated from fans to enable Lady Gaga to stream the event via Facebook Live.

Lady Gaga kicked off her show at 9.15pm whilst clad in a rhinestone jacket and pink hat to perform four tracks, including 'Sinner's Prayer', 'A-Yo', 'A Million Reasons', before finishing off with 'Perfect Illusion'.

During the show a group of 15 hearing impaired people, who represented Not Impossible, attended the gig and wore a custom-made vest, which vibrated with the beat of the music to enable them to follow each single, whilst a person performed in sign language on the stage wings.

Despite singing only four songs during her set, the powerhouse revealed she kept her gig short so as not to reveal "too much" from her upcoming LP.

She explained: "We can't give away too much tonight, so we'll see you next stop."

Lady Gaga's next show will take place one day before her LP will be released, on October 20th, and again one week later on October 27th.

Meanwhile, Lady Gaga has revealed her album is about "all the men" in her life, including her ex-fiancé actor Taylor Kinney - who she broke up with in July this year after dating for five years - and her father.

Speaking previously about her forthcoming record, she said: "When you listen to the album, it's clear the influence that all the men in my life have made on this record.

"But I have such a rebellious spirit, and my father was always very angry. He drank because of his sister's death. I was trying to understand him through making this record."
