Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga will perform two UK shows in September as part of a wider European tour under the banner ‘The Born This Way Ball’. Support will come from The Darkness and tickets will go on sales on 13 Apr at 9am.

Gaga says of the show: “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”.

Right. Well, here are the dates:

8 Sep: London, Twickenham Stadium
11 Sep: Manchester Arena
