Lady Gaga’s kicked off her 2012-2013 Born This Way Ball World Tour in Seoul, South Korea last Friday. The singer is already making headlines for her crazy costumes, designed by Versace, Armani and Moschino.
“It’s been my life’s dream to be dressed in Italian designers,” Gaga, 26, told US Weekly.
“Lady Gaga is the present and the future,” Donatella Versace said. “She is the most revolutionary and inspirational artist. She is fearless and daring. I can’t wait for everyone to be surprised by what we’ve cooked up together!”
And even Gaga’s giant castle stage set is a masterpiece. James “Winky” Fairorth, CEO of Tate Towers said,”The stage set for the Born This Way Ball is the largest scenic structure that’s ever been built to tour.” It takes fifteen 53 foot long tractor trailers to move the castle and main stage!
Gaga’s first show in South Korea got off to rough start when the government stepped in and banned minors from attending listing her music under “Harmful Content for Youth.”
But the show did go on for nearly 60,000 fans. Gaga then headed to Hong Kong tweeting Sunday, “I’m so happy to be in Hong Kong! We have 4 shows here! Thanks for buying tickets my amazing little monsters, I can’t wait to rock this city.”
The tour will continue to Asia, Australia and Europe with more dates expected to be announced soon.
How many of you will be going to see her perform?
I’m not a huge fan of big tours like this. Being from Portland, I have come to love smaller/more private venues.
The picture above is a pic Gaga Tweeted shortly after her show in Korea. She said “I could barely sleep last night. It was the 2nd highest attendance of fans in the History of concerts in Korea.”
Below is a picture of Gaga standing in the arena where she performed in Korea, before the stage was set up. “Imagine when it’s full. I love that it’s raining, so NEW YORK of you Korea!” she said.
