Sighting: Lady Gaga joins 'Chicago Fire' cast at show's watch party at Haymarket Pub

Lady Gaga showed her support for the series premiere of NBC’s “Chicago Fire” on Twitter and in person Wednesday.

The pop star – who is dating “Chicago Fire” star Taylor Kinney – encouraged her 30 million followers to watch the show’s premiere and tweeted photos from the cast’s watch party at Haymarket Pub & Brewery in West Town.  She joined Kinney and co-star Jesse Spencer at the get-together, which took place in the back bar.

“‘My bf Taylor is on TV TONIGHT!!!” for the premiere of CHICAGO FIRE on NBC at 10/9c in America,” Gaga tweeted. “Monsters, wanna watch it with me+chat online?”

Gaga ordered the vegan burger and posted a total of 17 “Chicago Fire”-related tweets and retweets, including one about Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s cameo on the show.

“Omg! Thats the real mayor of Chicago on the show!” Gaga tweeted. “So emotional”

Gaga has been spotted frequently on the set of “Chicago Fire,” which has been filming at the Cinespace Chicago Film Studios on the West Side and in various locations around the city.

According to Chicago Fire soccer player Chris Rolfe, the firefighter drama filmed Tuesday around W. Armitage Avenue and N. Mohawk Street in Lincoln Park.

“They had an ambulance out front of a house and were filming a scene where the medics were running inside the house,” Rolfe told me. “…I'm trying to get a cameo.”
