Lady Gaga’s South African tour dates announced

2012-06-19 00:00

GAGA about Lady Gaga. It has been confirmed. Lady Gaga will be performing in South Africa later this year.

Big Concerts yesterday officially announced that the Born This Way singer will be performing in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

But she won’t be performing in Durban.

Big Concerts’ chief operating officer, John Langford, told The Witness: “Lady Gaga’s touring schedule only allows her to be in SA for a few days between other global tour dates. As a consequence we were only able to offer two performances in South Africa, and given their relative market size it makes sense to have these in Johannesburg and Cape Town.”

Yesterday Gaga wrote on her twitter page: “I am SO EXCITED to be bringing THE BORN THIS WAY BALL to South Africa. Stadium shows! Its a dream come true, you’ll have to show me around!”

The pop star will be at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on November 30 and at the Cape Town Stadium on December 3.

Gaga will be joined by British rock band The Darkness and DJ Lady Starlight.

Tickets go on sale at 9 am today on Computicket’s website and at Computicket outlets on Thursday. Seated tickets start from R315 and standing tickets are R715.

Computicket said fans may experience delays in purchasing tickets online and advised patience — but don’t refresh the page, because that will send you to the back of the virtual booking queue. — WR.
