Melbourne, Australia – February 15, 2012 – Following last week’s confirmation of the Lady Gaga Born This Way Ball tour dates in Australia and New Zealand, the response has been overwhelming. As a result, promoters Live Nation and Michael Coppel confirmed today that 3 shows in both Sydney, June 20, 21 and 23 at Allphones Arena and Melbourne, June 27, 28 and 30 at Rod Laver Arena, and 2 shows in both Brisbane, June 13 and 14 at Brisbane Entertainment Centre and Auckland, June 7 and 8 at Vector Arena, in addition to previously announced Perth, July 7 at Burswood Dome will all go on sale to the public this Friday, February 17th at 9am.

5-time Grammy Award winner LADY GAGA is set to make her triumphant return to the stage with her Born This Way Ball. In this brand new tour, Gaga will perform her latest album Born This Way as well as music from both The Fame and The Fame Monster. The Born This Way Ball, produced globally by Live Nation, will begin on April 27th, 2012 in Seoul, South Korea, and will travel the globe including cities that Gaga has never played before.

Lady Gaga’s last tour – The Monster Ball – captivated audiences around the globe, receiving rave reviews in every city. The Sun called it “the best live show you will see this year,” and the Pollstar Concert Industry Awards named it the Major Tour of the Year.

"The Haus of Gaga and I have worked for months conceiving a spectacular stage,” said Mother Monster. “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 Born This Way Ball will be Lady Gaga’s first tour since the release of her album Born This Way (Streamline/Konlive/Interscope), which has sold nearly 6 million copies worldwide since its release in May 2011. The album is the follow-up to back-to-back Grammy Award-winning albums 2009’s The Fame Monster, and 2008’s The Fame. Combined, The Fame and The Fame Monster have sold 15 million albums worldwide, while Lady Gaga’s hit singles have combined sales of over 65 million worldwide.

Gaga was named Forbes' Most Powerful Woman in the World 2011 and was included in Time's annual "The 2010 Time 100" list of the most influential people in the world. With over 2.2 billion combined views of all her videos online, Lady Gaga is one of the biggest living people on Facebook with over 47 million ‘likes’ and is #1 on Twitter with nearly 19 million followers. Lady Gaga is the only artist in the digital era to top the 5 million sales mark with her first two hits.
