Lady Gaga  will finally bring her Born This Way Ball tour to North America in early 2013, after already performing her latest opus in Asia, Australia, and Europe. Twenty-six new dates in Canada and the U.S. were announced  on Wednesday (Sept. 5).
The North American leg will kick off on Jan. 11, 2013 in Vancouver and conclude on Mar. 16 in Miami. Two New York dates -- Feb. 22 at Madison Square Garden and Mar. 6 at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn -- have also been scheduled.
Following the May 2011 release of "Born This Way," the Born This Way Ball tour began last April in South Korea, and continued through Asia until coming to New Zealand in June. The European leg kicked off last month in Bulgaria, and will continue through October. Brief runs in Latin America and Africa are planned for the fall.
The Born This Way Ball follows Lady Gaga's international Monster Ball Tour, which supported her albums "The Fame" and "The Fame Monster" and featured three separate treks through North America from 2009 to 2011.
