If you’re shaking behind your screen right now, we understand, we really do. Harbour some calm thoughts because you will need to be able to act swiftly when it’s your turn in the front of the online queue for Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball Tour. The critically acclaimed singer was rumoured to make a trip down to sunny South Africa in the near future, and this morning it was revealed that the mother monster will make two appearances, one in Cape Town on 3 December and the other in Johannesburg on 30 November. Supporting the Born This Way singer will be her veteran performance partner Lady Starlight and the recently regrouped British rock band The Darkness.
The debut SA appearance of one of the most influential women in modern culture and one of the highest-earning tours of all time has set fans (or little monsters) abuzz. The tour, based on her Born This Way album which sold over 6 million copies worldwide, is sure to set the stage alight with its celebration of birth, death and everything in between.
