Lady Gaga Announces Tour, Skips Orange County
OK, so we all know by now that the Kanye West/Lady Gaga show at the Honda Center, once scheduled for November 15, isn't happening. Heck, the whole "Fame Kills" tour isn't happening. But even though Kanye is dealing with his own post-Taylor Swift issues, the hope still remained that the seemingly more stable Lady Gaga (insert your own "you know you're in trouble when Lady Gaga is the sane one" jokes here) would announce her own tour, and hit us up solo-style. Well, half of that came true.
As reported by Billboard and other sources, Lady Gaga is launching her own "Monster Ball" tour, with Kanye protege Kid Cudi in tow, and no Orange County date in sight. We just got dipped in burn sauce! For what it's worth, she's coming to LA on December 21 (Nokia Theatre) and San Diego on December 19 (San Diego Sports Arena). Lady Gaga was last 'round here in May (before becoming quite the inescapable cultural icon that she is now), at the Wango Tango KIIS-FM show. Our slideshow of that is here.
For those curious, full Monster Ball tourdates after the jump.
