Lady Gaga unveiled dates for her "Born This Way Ball" tour in Asia and Australia today, and those shows will be followed by dates in the rest of the world, Billboard.biz has learned. Gaga will tour Europe and Latin American later this year, and North America early in 2013. According to a tweet sent from Gaga's account this afternoon, the tour will total 110 dates.
Live Nation Global Touring CEO Arthur Fogel and his team will steer the tour, as they did the bulk of the "Monster Ball" tour of 2010-2011, which grossed $188 million from 167 shows, according to Billboard Boxscore. "Monster Ball" put Gaga - no. 84 on Billboard's recent "Power 100" list -- on the map as a major, arena-plus level touring artist, and demand to see her remains very high. Given that she won't return to tour North America until next year, those markets will be fresh, though it is likely she could play most cities in North America tomorrow and do sellout business.
