LOS ANGELES, March 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Live Nation, the international tour promoter for Lady Gaga's The Monster Ball tour presented by Virgin Mobile, has confirmed due to exuberant fan demand, an additional 6 Monster Ball concert dates have been added to the previously announced North American itinerary. On Friday, sales were so brisk that a 3rd and final show was added in New York. Quick to follow were sell outs in Toronto, Vancouver and San Jose who have also now confirmed 2nd and final shows in each city. In Los Angeles, to ensure Lady Gaga fans had the best possible access to tickets a 2nd performance was announced prior to Saturday's on sale and both Staples Center concerts are also now completely sold out.
With Lady Gaga's flair for the theatrical, combined with her innovative and creative spirit, The Monster Ball Tour promises to push the limits of the live concert experience, bringing fans a spectacle even more eye-popping than what they experienced before.
"It's still called Monster Ball, but it's more of a musical and less of a concert," Lady Gaga said in a February interview with KIIS-FM's Ryan Seacrest. "It has a New York theme, it's a story, and the story is that me and my friends are in New York and we're going to the Monster Ball, and we get lost."
Lady Gaga is touring in support of The Fame Monster, which was released on November 18th, 2009, by Streamline/Konlive/Cherrytree/Interscope. The album is the follow-up to 2008's Grammy Award-winning album The Fame, which spawned the No. 1 singles "Just Dance" and "Poker Face." Combined, The Fame and The Fame Monster have sold 10 million albums worldwide, while Lady Gaga's five singles, "Just Dance," "Poker Face," "Lovegame," "Paparazzi," and "Bad Romance," have sold more than 30 million singles worldwide. The video for "Bad Romance" has racked up more than 125 million online views. Lady Gaga recently premiered the video for her new single "Telephone," featuring Beyonce, on the E! television network and entertainment website VEVO.
As sponsor of the North American Monster Ball Tour, Virgin Mobile customers will have access to presale tickets.
