Following overwhelming ticket sales and sold-out shows throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Asia, five-time Grammy Award winner Lady Gaga will be bringing her Born This Way Ball World Tour to 25 cities in North America in 2013, including performances in Phoenix, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Toronto.
The tour makes a stop at US Airways Center on Jan. 23, 2013. Tickets will go on sale Friday, Oct. 5, 10 am.
In this brand new tour, Gaga performs her latest album Born This Way as well as music from both The Fame and The Fame Monster. The Born This Way Ball began on April 27, 2012 in Seoul, South Korea.
Pollstar’s 2012 Mid Year report ranks the Born This Way Ball as the top grossing tour by any female artist worldwide this year. About the show, the Hong Kong Daily News wrote “Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Ball is effortlessly brilliant in both the visual and musical sense,” while Seoul Daily said that with her “splendid and unprecedented stage, she is the absolute queen of pop!” The UK’s Daily Telegraph called the Ball “quite spectacular,” while affirming that “Lady Gaga occupies pole position as the 21st century’s ultimate pop star.”
"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.”
