Go Gaga for this Lady
FIVE-time Grammy Award winner Lady Gaga is set to make a return to the stage, with her Born This Way Ball tour.
Gaga will perform songs from her latest album Born This Way, as well as music from both The Fame and The Fame Monster.
The Born This Way Ball, produced globally by Live Nation, will begin on April 27 in Seoul, South Korea and will travel the globe, including cities that Gaga has never played.
Lady Gaga's last tour - The Monster Ball - captivated audiences around the globe, receiving rave reviews in every city.
The Sun called it "the best live show you will see this year" and the Pollstar Concert Industry Awards named it the Major Tour of the Year.
"The Haus of Gaga and I have worked for months conceiving a spectacular stage," said Mother Monster.
"The Born This Way Ball is an electro-metal pop-opera; the tale of the beginning, the genesis of the Kingdom of Fame.
"How we were birthed and how we will die celebrating."
The Born This Way Ball will be Lady Gaga's first tour since the release of her album Born This Way, which has sold nearly six million copies worldwide since its release in May last year.
The album is the follow up to back-to-back Grammy Award-winning albums, 2009's The Fame Monster, and 2008's The Fame.
Combined, The Fame and The Fame Monster have sold 15 million albums worldwide, while Lady Gaga's hit singles have combined sales of more than 65 million worldwide.
Gaga was named Forbes' Most Powerful Woman in the World 2011 and was included in the annual "The 2010 Time 100" list of the most influential people in the world.
With more than 2.2 billion combined views of all her videos online, Lady Gaga is one of the biggest living people on Facebook, with more than 47 million 'likes'.
She is number one on Twitter, with nearly 19 million followers.
Lady Gaga is the only artist in the digital era to top the five million sales mark with her first two hits.
