In a show that the Sun described as “awe-inspiring” and “the best live show you will see this year,” The Monster Ball tour is a visual spectacular bringing the vision of pop music’s biggest star to vivid reality. Self-described as “more of a musical than a concert” the journey to the ball takes Gaga and fans on a wild and warped ride from start to finish. From the Gaga’ized Rolls Royce, through 15 costume changes, as the Times say, this is truly “one helluva ride.”
North American audiences can look forward to her first major arena tour when Lady Gaga returns to North America this June for a 30-city tour. The North American itinerary and on-sale information will be announced soon.
It was also announced that Live Nation Global Touring will act as International tour promoter and producer for The Monster Ball Tour under the direction of Arthur Fogel, CEO/Chairman Live Nation Global Touring who said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be taking The Monster Ball Tour to fans around the world. Lady Gaga is a truly exceptional artist and the production is beyond amazing.”
