Chicago, IL - Lady Gaga brings her "Joanne World Tour" Friday to Wrigley Field, 1060 W. Addison, becoming the first woman to headline a concert at the famed Cubs' ballpark.

Sir Paul McCartney, Jimmy Buffett, Billy Joel, Pearl Jam and Green Day have all headlined shows at the iconic stadium, but Friday Gaga makes history. 

And with Wrigley Field located adjacent to Boystown - the city's officially recognized gay and lesbian neighborhood - the pop superstar will find herself right in the middle of Chicago's LGBTQ community.

The "Born This Way" singer has remained an outspoken advocate for LGBT issues throughout her music career.

According to Advocate, Lady Gaga gave much love to her queer fans at the Los Angeles tour stop in August. Addressing the "LGBTQ" community by name multiple times, Gaga said, "Everyone is family here" and "everyone's gotta love each other."

Gaga's 2017 tour wraps up on Dec. 14 in Salt Lake City.

The final Wrigley Field summer concert is the Zac Brown Band on Aug. 26.
