Lady Gaga unveiled dates today for her Born This Way Ball tour in Southeast Asia/Australia and those shows will be followed by the rest of the world including dates in Europe, Latin America and North America.
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.
