WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Pop superstar Lady Gaga will perform at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 14 in Purdue University’s Elliott Hall of Music. The show (which thankfully will not include Kanye West) also features special guests Kid Cudi and Jason DeRulo.Purdue’s Student Concert Committee is presenting the performance.
Lady Gaga says, “The Haus of Gaga had been designing ‘The Monster Ball’ for premiere in 2010 at the O2 Arena in London, but due to diligent work and preparation, ‘The Monster Ball’ will begin on Nov. 27 in Montreal. ‘The Monster Ball’ is a multimedia artistic experience in the style of the first-ever ‘pop electro opera.’”
Lady Gaga will release a repackage of her breakthrough album, “The Fame,” called “The Fame Monster,” earlier that week on Nov. 23. The repackage will include eight new songs, including the club-banging first single “Bad Romance.”
“A message to all my little monsters: “The Fame Monster” will come out four days before the first live show. You have exactly 96 hours to learn all of the lyrics so you can sing along. Dress accordingly,” Lady Gaga says.
