Lady Gaga has announced details of the UK leg of her 'Born This Way' tour, stopping off at London, Manchester and Dublin.
In a statement concerning the tour, which she has branded the 'Born This Way ball', Gaga said: "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."
So the usual subdued affair from Gaga, then…
She will be playing London Twickenham Stadium on September 8th 2012 and the Manchester Arena on September 11th, with a one-off date in the Dublin Aviva Stadium in Ireland on September 15th. Tickets for the event will go on-sale at 9am on April 13th with tickets priced between £50-£80 (London) and £60-£80 (Manchester), with support on all three nights coming from The Darkness and Lady Starlight.
