These are truly the best of times... and I don't care if I act like a 13 year old girl involving anything Gaga. I pay my own bills I do what I want!
Repost from Hotline: Kanye West can't hold Lady Gaga down! The unstoppable pop princess has announced a headlining tour of her own, bringing along Kud Cudi for 22 North American dates that brings Gaga Superstar to the Wang Center for two dates Dec. 1 and 2. Yes, nevermind those hermaphrodite rumors -- it's Lady Gaga at the Wang, ladies and gentlemen.
The news is super sweet for Gaga fans, as the tour with West didn't include a Boston stop. The closest date was a Dec. 16 show at the DCU Center in Worcester, as well as a show in Hartford around Christmastime. Now not only do we not have to deal the guilt of with paying for Kanye West tickets, but travel just got a whole lot easier. Just dance, says Hotline!
Here's word from Interscope Records: International pop superstar Lady Gaga today announced plans for her next North American tour, entitled "The Monster Ball." The tour will begin on Nov. 27 in Montreal, and will wind up on Jan. 21, 2010 in Gaga's hometown, New York City. Kid Cudi will be the supporting act for the entire tour.
Says Lady Gaga, "The Haus of Gaga had been designing 'The Monster Ball' for premiere in 2010 at the O2 Arena in London, but due to diligent work and preparation, 'The Monster Ball' will begin on Nov. 27 in Montreal. 'The Monster Ball' is a multimedia artistic experience in the style of the first-ever 'pop electro opera.'"
Lady Gaga will release a re-package of her breakthrough album, The Fame, called The Fame Monster, earlier that week, on Nov. 23. The re-package will include eight brand new songs, including the club-banging first single "Bad Romance." Continues Lady Gaga, "A message to all my little monsters: The Fame Monster will come out four days before the first live show. You have exactly 96 hours to learn all of the lyrics so you can sing along. Dress accordingly."
