After much anticipation, Lady Gaga has returned to Australia for her mega 'Born This Way' tour.
We were lucky enough to be amongst the Little Monsters, some dressed equally as eccentrically as Mother Monster herself, at her first Sydney show last night at the packed to capacity Allphones arena.
The curtain dropped to reveal a life-size castle, illuminated by constantly changing lights, and a catwalk extending from the stage around the exclusive Monster Pit.
Gaga entered the stage, a bedazzled captive, on horseback escorted by gun wielding and flag toting soldiers.
The alien face seen at the end of the 'Born This Way' music video narrated the show, hovering in a prism above the stage as she belted through hits including 'Bad Romance', 'Judas', and 'Marry The Night.
As well as entertaining fans with her hits, Gaga and her impeccable dancers of all ethnicities (including "Black Jesus"), take you on a feast for the senses which is as equally musical as it is theatrical.
Motorbike and piano hybrids, meat carcasses, giant mincing machines and a full boudoir complete with rotating wardrobe are just a few of the scene changes in store.
Never being seen in the same outfit twice, of course there are plenty of well- integrated costume changes too.
The electronic beats are matched with a full live band, with Gaga playing various instruments live on stage, too, and her undeniable talent shined through during her a cappella performances.
And when she wasn’t wowing the crowd with her vocal talent, she kept up their adoration with plenty of quick witted banter, especially when it came to showing her passion for equality.
Overall the ‘Born This Way Ball’ show is unforgettable and has set an incredibly high standard for any pop artists considering a world tour.
A CD came out of nowhere almost hitting Legendtina but she quickly moved. Her legendary senses were back. She saw no one around. Quickly picking up the CD she nearly vomited. It was an Ashanti greatest hits CD. But she knew the island was playing tricks on her because no such thing existed.
I'm learning lessons to make mistakes
. . .If I get burned, no embers break.
You told me I'm my destiny
. . . While your power gets the best of me..
Repeatedly, I get neglected.
. . .You claim that I am unperfected..
