Lady Gaga Adds More Dates To Monster Ball Tour

Lady Gaga Adds More Dates To Monster Ball Tour

Lady Gaga has added more dates to her 2011 Monster Ball Tour. Her monster-sized tour, which started back when Regan was in office, now has 36 dates scheduled for the United States and Canada.

While she added 12 shows, the tour itself has only expanded by a week. It’s now set to end April 27 in Cleveland, Ohio.

This is the second time in as many weeks that Lady Gaga has added concert dates and Land of Punt doubts it will be the last.

After all, Lady Gaga is performing so much she even does a set on her tour bus and an encore when they stop for lunch.

On Oct. 2, Lady Gaga makes an appearance at Yoko Ono’s Plastic Ono Band concert in Los Angeles—that should be a pleasant sounding show. After rocking with the 77-year old Beatle-killer, Gaga heads to Helsinki, Finland for her tour’s umpteenth European leg. She finishes that jaunt on Dec. 17 with a concert in London.

After that she’s off to the North Pole for the “elf leg” of her Monster Ball Tour. Just in time for Christmas, the North Pole shows will be exactly the same as her normal shows except the stage is only a foot off the ground.

This leg makes perfect sense since elves and gays make up the bulk of Lady Gaga fans.

Pop’s newest Diva and the current “it” girl isn’t the only major act touring in 2001. Below, LOP looks at some of the top acts that will be out on the road performing next year. It’s all part of a list Land of Punt likes to call, concerts 2011.

  • U2 has rescheduled the North American dates it canceled in 2010 after Bono wimped out with a bad back. What a crybaby. The 16-date, 14-city 360° Tour starts May 21 in Denver, Colorado and ends July 23 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
  • Roger Waters’ North American tour of “he Wall Live ends in mid-December. After taking three months off, he returns to tour Europe. The former member of Pink Floyd begins his journey of the Old World March 21 in Lisbon. The tour ends June 18 in Düsseldorf. The highlight of his historic outing is a five show run at London’s O2 Arena.
  • Celine Dion returns to Las Vegas on March 15, 2011. The greatest singer in the world has announced a new three-year residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. So far 54 concert dates have been announced with tickets ranging from $55 TO $250. This time around Dion’s show is based on the romance of Hollywood.
  • A better looking but less talented version of Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue, is set to play a string of concerts in Europe next year. The Australian beauty’s Aphrodite—Les Folies Tour 2011 kicks off Feb. 19 in Denmark and wraps April 8 in London. KM should be coming to North America after the conclusion of her European romp.
  • You know you tour a lot when it’s necessary to announce when you’re not touring. Dave Matthews Band will NOT be touring in 2011. LOP repeats, DMB will not be touring next year. The band has been a summer fixture on the concert circuit for years. In fact, they were named by Pollstar as the number one touring artist of the decade (2000-2009). Don’t worry though, DMW is set to return in 2012.
  • It been confirmed that Christina Aguilera will tour in 2011. She was going to launch a tour in the summer of 2010 but postponed it because she was just too busy. The cancellation had nothing to do with her tickets being over priced… by 50 percent. Nope, it had absolutely nothing to do with that.
