Lady Gaga leads stellar Late Late Show line-up tonight


RTÉ have announced the star-studded line-up of guests set to appear on The Late Late Show tonight with Ryan Tubridy, and by the sounds of it we’re in for a real treat!

Hollywood royalty Lady Gaga will join Ryan from London to chat about her new movie House of Gucci in a role she took so seriously she lived as her character, Patrizia Reggiani, for a year and a half during filming both on and off-camera. Ryan will also talk to the Oscar winner about her own experience with bullying and her friendship with fellow musician Tony Bennett.

Ryan said: “Lady Gaga is a pop-cultural phenomenon, whatever she turns her hand to seems to shine from the Grammys to her Oscar, she is a fascinating mega-star. I cannot wait to talk to her.”

Former President Mary McAleese will discuss her new documentary With God on our Side and why she believes a united Ireland is coming.

Boyzone sensation Ronan Keating will be on the show to chat about his new album Songs from Home and why coming back to Ireland after lockdown was an emotional experience. Ronan will also be joined by his wife Storm for a very special performance.

As Ireland’s World Cup qualifying campaign draws to a close this weekend Ryan will be joined by soccer analysts Eamon Dunphy and Liam Brady as they give their verdict on Stephen Kenny’s tenure so far and they will also discuss their memories of Dalymount Park as the ground is set to close next year for redevelopment.

100 years after the signing of The Anglo-Irish Treaty, Orlaith McBride brings a treasure trove of priceless items from The National Archives into The Late Late studio.

Plus, there’ll be music from Irish singer/songwriter Glen Hansard singing an Oscar-worthy performance of Gold from the movie Once.

All of this and more on The Late Late Show tonight on RTÉ One at 9:35pm.
