The Born This Way Ball

The last concert that I’ve been to was Christina Aguilera’s ‘The Back to Basics’ tour which was staged at the Bonifacio Global City open field in Taguig. And that was way back in 2007. Other worldwide superstars such as Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry also brought spectacular and dazzling shows off their respective worldwide tours in the country, but I wasn’t able to see any of those live. I know right? It sucks to be me. But all bad things must come to an end, and the curse will stop really soon!

The costumes! The stage! The songs! The Spectacle! Lady Gaga!

Lady Gaga is going to have a massive return in the country and will bring her ‘The Born This Way Ball’ to her Pinoy fans at the Mall of Asia Arena on the 21st and the 22nd of May. This is going to be really exciting. It feels orgasmic.I haven’t even purchased my ticket yet, but i am going to pull out all the stops just to see this one.

The feel and theme of the tour kinda looks creepy though. The tour poster looks like it was actually inspired from an 80’s horror or sci-fi movie. And the original sketch for the stage design is kinda “hell-ish”.

But who cares? It’s Lady Gaga, so everything must be creepy. She’s the queen of the creeps anyway.
And you have to give the lady some props for executing the idea really well.

And the costumes are amazing as well, although it feels like we’ve already seen most of these from her previous tours and whatnot. For this edition, Gaga collaborated with Giorgio Armani to create these wonderful pieces.

The bitch is awesome and she knows it. Kidding aside, although I am not a big fan of the Born This Way album (I still like “The Fame-Lady Gaga-era” much more), I am still excited to hear some songs from the album live, such as ‘Born This Way’, ‘Government Hooker’, ‘Bloody Mary’, and ‘Marry the Night’.

More creepy stuff.
