Lady Gaga opens iTunes Festival at the Roundhouse in front of Adele, Neil Horan and other celeb fans

Lady Gaga made her UK comeback last night (01.09.13) as she opened iTunes Festival at the at the Roundhouse in Camden.

The 27-year-old singer made her first UK performance in almost a year, rocking the stage almost half-an-hour late dressed as a bandit brandishing a knife, with a black bandana covering the lower half of her face.

The star – who was forced to cut her Born This Way Ball tour when she underwent surgery in February – told fans: “To say that I’ve missed you, it’s a bit of an understatement. When I’m without you, I can’t live.”

Gaga – real name Stefani Germanotta – compared herself to Dorothy from the The Wizard of Oz, claiming she finally felt like she’s home.

She explained: “I’m a bit like Dorothy right now. There’s no place like home.”

Gaga played an hour-long set performing seven songs from her upcoming third studio album, ARTPOP, witnessed by a host of celebrity supporters in the audience including Adele, Niall Horan from One Direction and TV personality Arlene Phillips.

Katy Perry is to close the iTunes Festival on 30 September.
