Lady Gaga Live In Dubai
Dubai are you ready for Lady Gaga?
Fans of Lady Gaga in the UAE have fired up the social media chatter as news filters down that ‘Born This Way’ singer has a date with Dubai on September 10.
Several fan sites and Twitter accounts dedicated to the five-time Grammy winner have announced the news, stating an official confirmation will only come mid-May.
Twitter handle Lady Gaga News stated: “Lady Gaga will bring artRAVE to Dubai on September 10th, 2014! Tickets go on sale May 15th. Official announcement released on May 12th.”
Gaga Daily, a fan site of the singer also stated a similar story, saying: “Sources from Dubai are reporting an official announcement of Gaga’s artRAVE in Dubai in September, most likely the 10th, will come within the next couple of weeks.
“Nothing is 100 per cent official yet, since neither Live Nation or Gaga announced it, but we’ll have to wait a bit.”
A reply to an email query to the Dubai-based Done Events to confirm whether they are organising the local concert is yet awaited.
However, UAE-based fans or ‘Little Monsters’ [as they are popularly referred to] of the American pop singer couldn’t contain their excitement.
Monster Mody tweeted: “Lady Gaga is coming to Dubai on September 10th 2014! My life just ended!.”
Casablancas said: “Is it true that Lady Gaga is coming to Dubai? I’m gonna cry. Please tell me it’s true. Oh my.”
Mrinali Mathur, a school-going fan of Gaga, said: “I am so going to save up my pocket money to attend her concert. Lady Gaga is my icon. Please let this news be true.”
Yousif Abdullah said: “I’m freaking out! Lady Gaga is coming to Dubai. Get me there.”
Gaga, who’s real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, shot up the charts back in 2008 with her debut album, ‘The Fame’, which included breakthrough hits ‘Just Dance’ and ‘Poker Face’.
In 2009, ‘The Fame Monster’ cemented her starry rise to the top with number-one tracks including ‘Bad Romance’ and ‘Alejandro’.
Gaga has continued her winning innings with ‘Born This Way’ in 2011, with ‘Artpop’, which released in November 2013, became her second number one album in the US.
Not new to controversy with her artistic fashion sense – who can forget that meat dress – and her underlying tiff with Madonna and celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, few can question Gaga’s influence on the music scene having sold an estimated 24 million albums and 125 million singles worldwide.
