Lady Gaga took a moment during her Cheek to Cheek tour stop with TonyBennettFriday night at Ravinia to comment on the Supreme Court’s ruling earlier in the day, lifting the ban on gay marriage in the United States.
Resplendent in asee-through red fish net and feathered gown, Gaga took a moment to dedicate a song to all lovers and tomarriage equality.
“It might be a touchy subject, but let’s touch it,” a beaming Gaga said amid cheers. “What a special day for love! And here’s to Tony [Bennett] who fought for the Civil Rights of so many Americans.”
The last part of her comment was in reference to Bennett’s well-documented commitment to the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s including his participation in the 1965 Selma-to-Alabama march with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The duo return Saturday night to the Highland Park venue forthe second of two sold-out shows.
