The pop superstar has been playing opossum regarding her upcoming Born This Way Ball world tour, releasing but a few dates for a concert showcase that is rumored to include more than 110 stops.
The previously released Gaga tour dates included stops throughout South Korea, Tokyo, Japan, New Zealand and Australia, along with just a couple UK tour dates; however, we now know Lady Gaga's full Born This Way Ball itinerary for a select European portion of her upcoming tour.
Lady Gaga had teased of the release of the upcoming tour dates on Twitter, saying, " "The first 21 European dates to THE BORN THIS WAY BALL will be announced and tweeted at 3am EST/12am PST/7am GMT. I'm so excited! #pawsup (sic)."
The dynamic performer revealed 21 stops along her tour. The European portion of Born This Way Ball will kick off in Sofia, Bulgaria at the Vasil Levski National Stadium on August 14th. The stops throughout Europe will continue through August and September before Lady Gaga wraps things up in early October with a final Euro concert at Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona, Spain on October 6th.
It is said that British rock group The Darkness will be opening for Lady Gaga at the various European shows, while acclaimed electronic DJ ZEDD is joining on for the Asia portion of the tour and DJ Lady Starlight for the Australian concerts.
"The Haus of Gaga and I have worked for months conceiving a spectacular stage," Lady Gaga said previously in a statement about the tour. "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."
