Lady Gaga has opted to maintain an aura of mystery until the last minute of her new tour, “Born This Way Ball,” which began yesterday in Seoul, where the singer has left hardly seen in public. The 26-year-old artist has avoided reporters who have waited at the entrance of the hotel and at the Olympic stadium of Seoul.
On her Twitter account, Lady Gaga expressed her concern yesterday after making the last trial: “Nervous in the face tonight. I hope to have the little monsters (nickname giving their fans) happy and proud.”
Since the Seoul concert is the first of her world tour, she arrived well in advance to meticulously rehearse,” said a spokesman for Hyundai Card, the company organizing the event. Several South Korean media say that even those employed in the production of the sets has kept all the details of their work in secret. However, Lady Gaga, who visited South Korea in 2009 to promote her first job, she met briefly with some of her fans in the hotel’s lobby where she stayed.
The concert was full of controversy after the rating committee and South Korean media announced that only those over 18 years are allowed to see the show. There must be something considered as inappropriate for minors in content and language. After Seoul, Lady Gaga will take several Asian capitals such as Jakarta, Manila and Tokyo, as well as the major cities of Australia and New Zealand. The artist has included Spain on one of her tours, which will take place at the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona on October 6.
