“Today is the anniversary of my father’s sister Joanne‘s passing,” Gaga wrote along with a black-and-white photo of herself and Mark Ronson, who served as executive producer on her album. “12-18-1974.”

“It also happens to be our last #JoanneWorldTour date playing North America,” she added. “I’m very sentimental @MarkRonson , who I wrote Joanne with will be here, in the audience and on stage. #Joanne #LupusAwareness.”
