Mind the exclamation marks folks, but it has just been announced by Big Concerts and 5FM’s Gareth Cliff that Lady Gaga will tour Cape Town and Johannesburg towards the end of the year. Mother Monster will be bringing her Born This Way Tour to our shores, which is set to be the singer’s first trip to our beautiful country.
The Paparazzi hit maker is set to tour Joburg on 30 November at FNB stadium, with Cape Town getting its turn on 03 December. In what is set to be Cape Town’s gayest party EVER, this is surely a big feat for Big Concerts. The concert promoter has recently come under fire for not bringing down current, big acts to the country. Some have even gone so far to dub them “Mediocre Concerts”. I mean really, how many times are we supposed to fund Roxette’s retirement fund? Great job BC, you’ve done well!
Gaga will be supported by The Darkness, with a special appearance by Lady Starlight. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, 19 June. Make sure you get yours early, they will sell out in record time. Are you excited to have Lady Gaga on our shores?
