Lady Gaga announces ‘Born This Way Ball’ UK dates – ticket details

The Darkness also sign up for autumn shows

Lady Gaga has announced plans to play two UK dates later this year.

The singer will perform at London’s Twickenham Stadium on September 8 and Manchester MEN Arena on September 11 as part of her ‘Born This Way Ball’ tour. Gaga will also play a one-off date in Ireland at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium four days later.

Support on all three dates will come from The Darkness and Lady Starlight. Tickets for the shows go on sale this Friday (April 13) at 9am. To check the availability of Lady Gaga tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS, or call 0871 230 1094.

In a statement, Gaga said:

The Haus of Gaga and I have worked for months conceiving a spectacular stage.

She added: “The ‘Born This Way Ball’ is an electro-metal pop-opera; the tale of the beginning, the genesis of the Kingdom of Fame. How we were birthed and how we will die celebrating.”

The shows are part of a global tour which kicks off at Seoul Olympic Stadium on April 27, before coming to Europe later in the summer.
