Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, better known as Lady Gaga, from Yonkers, New York is bringing her infamous tour to Philly for two days. Born to an Italian family consisting of an internet mogul and business partner- this aspiring exhibitionist began her career singing Michael Jackson and Cyndi Lauper tunes into a plastic tape recorder, her parents were the only ones who sprung for Lady Gaga tickets then. She earned her stage name from the Queen song "Radio Gaga." First signed to Def Jam recorders at 19, LA Reid, however, they dropped Gaga after only 3 months - it was hip hop star Akon who gave Lady Gaga another chance, signing her to his Konvict label. Since then, Lady Gaga has written songs for Britney Spears, Fergie, The Pussy Cat Dolls and New Kids on the Block. After sparking the interest of Interscope records, Gaga struck a joint deal with the two labels. One of the first songs that Lady Gaga would produce would be a mashup (combo of music from one song and a capella from another) of the AC/DC song "TNT" and the Motley Crue song "Girls, Girls, Girls" and the rest is history!!
Of Montreal is an indie rock band from Athens, Georgia who is known for putting on a whimsical and musically captivating show. The band is composed of band leader Kevin Barnes, Bryan Poole, Dottie Alexander, Davey Pierce and Clayton Rychlik who all came together after years of members shuffling in and out of the group. As a long time fan, you should expect a new sound, look and feel to the band with the new direction they are taking their style to. Moving away from the psychedelic-fantastical sound of past albums, and toward a heavier use of guitar, they not only wail with Barnes' high-pitched voice, but also place it over a rock background with only hints of the quirky sound that has placed them in a few top bands lists for half a decade. Barnes acts the narrator to a symbolic play happening on stage - naked women and men eating apples out of each other's hands, while a cartoon of a cock (rooster) and a priest flashed on the projection screen and other theatrical displays that are very visual.
As Lady Gaga concerts started becoming more and more popular as Lady Gaga , she would find set and fashion inspiration in the form of Lower East Side DJ Lady Starlight. The two went on to perform at Lollapalooza in 2008 where Lady Gaga was given a summons for indecent exposure due to her hot pants addiction - from this, more and more fans were learning of the outrageousness of a Lady Gaga concert and wanted Lady Gaga tickets of their own. Emulating the pop-art lifestyle, Lady Gaga concerts are anything but drab - with outlandish outfits dripping with faux crystals, faux meat, balls dropping to the theme of A Clockwork Orange and mounds and mounds of hot pants, Lady Gaga tickets are your passes to some serious eye candy. Lady Gaga shows guarantee a blast into the past and a glimpse into the future of pop. So get yourself in and just dance.
