Lady Gaga Sells out Around the Globe With her 2010 Monster Ball Tour and Announces 2011 North American Dates

Critics around the world raved about the first leg of The Monster Ball Tour, which Gaga described as “the first-ever pop-electro opera.” The Sun called it “breathtaking stuff” and “the best live show you will see this year,” while London’s Independent wrote: “Gaga’s got it, which is why, right now, the whole pop world wants to take a ride on her disco stick.” Writing about her show at Radio City Music Hall, the New York Times noted that “her Monster Ball tour always provided something worth a snapshot: a sci-fi tableau, perhaps, or a skimpy, glittery costume. The more her image gets around, the better Lady Gaga does.”

“In just 2 years Lady Gaga has become an international superstar, selling out everywhere in the world,” said Arthur Fogel, CEO Global Touring and Chairman – Global Music Live Nation.

Lady Gaga is touring in support of The Fame Monster, which was released on November 18th, 2009, by Streamline/Konlive/Cherrytree/Interscope. The album is the follow-up to 2008’s Grammy Award-winning album The Fame, which spawned the No. 1 singles “Just Dance” and “Poker Face.” Combined, The Fame and The Fame Monster have sold 11.5 million albums worldwide, while Lady Gaga’s current singles, “Just Dance,” “Poker Face,” “Lovegame,” “Paparazzi,” “Bad Romance” and “Telephone” have combined sales over 40 million worldwide. At this year’s BRIT awards, she took home awards for International Album (The Fame), International Female Solo Act and International Breakthrough Act.

Her music videos have received a combined total of over 1 billion views online – the first artist to reach this number. Lady Gaga has made another video milestone with “Bad Romance” becoming the most viewed video of all-time on
