Only moments ago Big Concerts confirmed the suspicions of many by announcing that Lady Gaga was on her way to South Africa later this year as part of the Born This Way Ball. I’ll give all of you Monsters a moment to platz before I continue……………. Ok, you alright now?
Lady Gaga’s Born this Way Ball tour will feature the likes of THE DARKNESS (I believe in a thing called love) & LADY STARLIGHT (her long time performance partner) as supporting acts when the GAGA Machine rolls into Cape Town and Jozi at the end of this year. The 5-time Grammy Award winner LADY GAGA has been making waves around the World with the The Born This Way Ball tour (produced by Live Nation) featuring crazy performances from her latest album Born This Way as well as well-known tunes from both The Fame and The Fame Monster albums. The South African leg of the tour begins November 30th in Johannesburg, ending off in Cape Town on December 3rd 2012.
Gaga had this to say about the Born This Way Ball Tour:
“The Haus of Gaga and I have worked for months conceiving a spectacular stage,” “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.”
Gaga was named Forbes’ Most Powerful Woman in the World 2011 and was included in Time’s annual “The 2010 Time 100” list of the most influential people in the world. As far as social media goes she is probably the most powerful person in the world with over 2.2 billion combined views of all her videos online, over 52 million ‘likes’ on Facebook and a #1 ranking on Twitter with almost 26 million followers.
