Lady Gaga announces more Monster Ball tour dates and Lollapalooza

Lady Gaga’s headlining slot on Lollapalooza was confirmed this week, as she and her Monster Ball tour mates / longtime friends Semi Precious Weapons take the stage at the monster of all summer festivals Aug. 6 – 8 at Grant Park in downtown Chicago. For full line-up, tickets and details, visit http://2010.lollapalooza.com. This will be Gaga’s second Lollapalooza performance: a pre-fame, pre-monster, relatively unkown, brunette Gaga performed in 2007, earning her critical acclaim and spawning her meteoric rise to superstar status.

Over the past few weeks, Lady Gaga has reached unprecedented milestones as a true digital music trailblazer. She was the first franchise to rack up more than 1 billion total online video views (“Poker Face,” “Bad Romance,” and “Just Dance”), according to online analytics company Visible Measures, which tallied the plays on clips that made its “100 Million Views Club” list. She’s also the only artist of the digital era to top the 5 million sales mark with her first two hit singles, a record she broke when “Poker Face” reached 5 million in sales after her debut single, “Just Dance,” accomplished that feat last year.

See Gaga in action when the Virgin Mobile Presents The Monster Ball Tour Starring Lady Gaga, with special guests Semi Precious Weapons, hits your city this summer. New dates are constantly being added to meet the demand for the sold out spectacular; visit http://www.ladygaga.com for updates.
