Lady Gaga is reportedly making her post-surgery comeback in the UK at London's Roundhouse.
The Bad Romance singer has been in a wheelchair for most of the year after hip surgery, but is apparently planning to return to the stage in London, said The Sun.
It's rumoured she will launch her new album Artpop at the gig in September to the 3,300 capacity venue and her team Haus of Gaga will be spending a reported £500,000 on it.
The performance would be part of the iTunes Festival, 30 nights of free music in London which fans can win ballot tickets to. Justin Timberlake, Kings Of Leon, Arctic Monkeys and Elton John have all been confirmed as festival acts so far.
A source told The Sun: "The gig in Camden has a huge budget and is likely to be the first anyone sees or hears of her album. The Haus Of Gaga team have been working in secret on costumes and stage sets for the show from their base in Paris.
"Gaga's dancers have also been rehearsing but she's only told her closest friends about the new direction she's taking. The music is going to be a big departure and Gaga's dreamed up a whole new image for the album."
An iTunes Festival spokesman said: "Apple does not comment on rumour or speculation."
