Cape Town went gaga for Gaga.

I’ve always been very open about my taste in music, which I confidently term as “commercial crap”. I have no problem listening to trashy pop from the radio. The morning Lady Gaga tickets were released I begged my dad to buy me an early birthday present (unemployment sure sucks!)… it was without a doubt THE best birthday present I have EVER gotten!

Lady Gaga did NOT disappoint. It was beyond a concert. It was a work of art, a theatrical production. Dancing, sets, music – I felt like I was watching what Phantom of the Opera would look like if it was on acid and projected into the future, and instead of a love story between 2 people, it was a love between Gaga, her fans, ourselves, unity and acceptance.

Some of my personal highlights:

  • Buying a pink wig off someone and wearing it for the performance.
  • The castle set.
  • Gaga arriving onto the stage on a horse!
  • The birth scene (not quite a highlight, but surely one to remember!)
  • Her personal story & inspiring messages
  • Seeing how inspired the audience was, especially those in the Monster Pit.
  • That reallyannoying chic on stage with her, who practically tried to take over the show.
  • Shreibe, Americano, Black Jesus, Born This Way.
  • The encore (which fool actually left when she said she was playing “the last song” pffft. You missed out)
  • When she brought up that little girl on stage for the encore of Marry The Night, and genuinely cared and looked after her while on stage.
