The Monsters were Born This Way.

Hi guys, I hope you were as excited as I was when I heard Lady Gaga had announced another World Tour! Those of you who don't know, I was lucky enough in 2010 to get my hands on a Monster Ball ticket, Fly from Christchurch New Zealand, to Auckland (still New Zealand) skip school and be accepted into the cult like following of Gaga as the 'freak' I was and still am. Tickets in NZ go on sale in exactly one week through Ticketmaster. One week!  7 days! Im anxious as hell to get my 'paws' on a ticket to see my 'Mother Monster' rock the city again. Personally I think she should come rock Christchurch, after the many earthquakes in Canterbury. Since the quakes, I have been to one concert! only one and i'm beginning to have withdrawals! But Im sold by Gaga's theatrical edge, Im going no matter what the cost or how much school I will miss. I think many fans across the globe will feel the same way as well.

The previous tour, The Monster ball was everything I dreamed it would be and better. I'm not ashamed to admit that I sometimes still close my eyes and imagine the lights, hear the sounds, and wish I could escape back to that moment for just one more minute. Recently Lady Gaga released a fantastic DVD Of The Monster Ball Live In Madison Square Garden. I bought it ofcourse. I was bawling my eyes out after the first 5 minutes! (Don't worry I laughed and smiled too). The point I am trying to emphasize is that Lady Gaga is relatable to everyone who has ever felt different or like the 'underdog' of the pack. Whether the difference is your sexuality, ethnicity, religion or even music preference I can say that I don't think there is anyone out there who hasn't  felt like an outsider before. If no one can accept you for you, Its their problem.

Gaga in 'Born This Way.'
 Gaga encourages diversity and sends loving messages to her 'Little Monsters' about acceptance and the simple fact that "You were born this way." In other words its OK to be abnormal. Its OK to be yourself and Its OK to become who you want to be. Therefore, I feel this phenomenal woman has genuinely earned the trust of her fans and become one of the most (if not the most) successful artists of our time. She is brutally honest and admits her flaws both in interviews and her music. After all, "No ones perfect."

A few days ago on  social networking sites Facebook and Twitter, Gaga announced the new tour.

"To give you a bit of insight on the design of my new tour, the central area within the stage will be known as "The Monster Pit." "The Monster Pit" is General Admission only, and Little Monsters unlock it when they arrive to the arena or stadium. Entry to "The Monster Pit" is relegated to the fans who have arrived first, waited all night, + dressed to "Ball." 

I can only imagine how many desperate Little Monsters will be clawing each others eyes out for the limited spots! But it seems fair, line up early and fight for your place (in a lovingly monster way of course!)

Garr!!! So the plan from here is to study hard, save hard and book flights for yet another unforgagattable experience. Did you see what I did there? - Im sorry Im breaking out the awful puns! Im just so darn excited! I will keep you posted on my ticketing progress.

Proposed staging for the new tour.
Thats me.
I will see you at the Ball!
