Lady Gaga has been on tour since November of 2009, and she’ll continue globe-trotting until April of 2011 on her Monster ball tour.
According to Billboard, by the last show, Gaga’s run will have grossed $200 million. And she has all of you little monsters who bought tickets to thank for it.
She’s made stops in North America, Europe, the U.K., Asia and Australia. A spokesperson for Live Nation Entertainment, who also serves as the producer on the Monster Ball, told Billboard that Gaga can play with the big leaguers, like Madonna and U2, who grossed $220 million and over $300 million on their last tours, respectively.
"It's an opportunity," Live Nation global touring chairman Arthur Fogel said. "As an artist with that kind of talent and vision emerges, it creates a lot of excitement, and ticket sales worldwide demonstrate that people are really excited to see the show.
"Over the course of the next many months, we're trying to play to as many people in as many places as possible," he added. "It's an across-the-board home run."
Gaga should just permanently stay on tour at this point. What’s the point in stopping? She’s still finding time to get into the studio, and by the time April of next year rolls around, we’ll be ready to see her again!
