Lady Gaga In concert
It was one of the stunning concerts that I’ve seen as Lady Gaga rocks Singapore Indoor Stadium for her Born This Way Ball. The first sold-out night of her three-night tour in Singapore (May 28, 29 and 31) was attended by thousands of fans of all ages; female, male, young and old. The stage was dazzling with a castle and the design setting was changing as different songs played. Her opening song was “Highway Unicorn (Road to Love)”, as she appeared on the stage on the top of a black unicorn prop.
Lady Gaga’s powerful music, extreme dance moves and not to mention her unique sense of fashion were showcased during the concert. She had costumes of futuristic soldier, meat dress outfit and eccentric costumes with sequences that added entertainment to the astonishing event. She even played on a piano that was designed like a motorcycle for her performance of the song, “Hair”.
What overwhelmed me the most was the part where she shared her stories of her youth. How she struggled to survive from the mean boys in high school and how they made her feel like a loser. She had words of encouragement to the fans whom she often call, ‘Little Monsters’. Her speech moved me and some of the audience were even in tears. It was a touching night and everyone enjoyed the show as she also stated that we all deserve to be happy. As the concert was about to end, she also said that she wakes up every morning and pinch herself because she can’t believe that she’s a star. She ended the show with an encore version of “Marry the Night” and everyone was enjoying it. The concert was worth watching with a full blast of unique and extravagant entertainment. I can’t wait to see her next concert tours!
Lady Ga Ga will be rocking the LA Staples Center Jan 20,21.
Here are the top five touring acts of 2010. While they are all big names, you may be a bit surprised at some of the names on it.
5. The Black Eyed Peas- $81.6 million
It seems that everything that the Black Eyed Peas touches in recent years has turned to gold. Or Platinum, whatever. The Black Eyed Peas World Tour in 2010 sold out all 82 dates that they had. And everyone had a “Goodnight” (oooh hooo).
4. Lady Gaga- $116.2 million
It can be argued that Gaga is the biggest star in the muscle universe today. Her 2010 Fame Monster World Tour (which is actually still going on as we speak) sold out 101 of 122 shows last year. Of course, a lot of the $116 million that she received when back into production costs (Gaga is never understated), she’s still doing pretty good for herself.
3. AC/DC- $122.6 million
One of the most iconic hard rock bands of the last half centuries, AC/DC’s 2010 stadium dates found the band playing to over 1.15 million people in 28 shows. With a number “Black Ice” hitting number one recently, it can be argued that AC/DC is as popular, if not popular, then it as ever been.
2. U2- $131.5 million
To be honest, the only reason why U2 isn’t number one on this list is because they had to cancel a full North American tour thanks to Bono’s back issues. In fact, U2 was able to make all their money with only 22 dates (and 22 sell outs). Expect the band to take up the top spot in 2011 with their rescheduled North American tour.
1. Bon Jovi- $146.5 million
While they may not be the flashiest or the most beloved band in rock, Bon Jovi is quite possibly the most consistent. Regardless of whether they release a new album or not, they hit the road almost every year. And their fans keeping buying tickets, with 69 sell outs in 69 dates. Though the band is going to take the next couple of years off, they will hit the road again.
