Kid Cudi and Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga Announces ‘Monster Ball’ Tour Dates, Kid Cudi to Open

The show must go on. In the wake of her ill-fated “Fame Kills” tour with Kanye West, a solo Lady Gaga will embark on a North American tour in late November. While she won’t share the stage with Mr. West, the rapper’s protégé Kid Cudi will come along for the ride.

The “Poker Face” singer’s 22-date outing, titled “The Monster Ball,” will begin on November 27 in Montreal, and close on January 21, 2010 in her hometown of New York City. Kid Cudi will be the supporting act for the entire leg.

Lady Gaga will release The Fame Monster, a repackaging of her debut album The Fame, on November 23. The set will feature eight new songs, including the first single “Bad Romance.”

“A message to all my little monsters: The Fame Monster will come out four days before the first live show,” the pop star said in a statement. “You have exactly 96 hours to learn all of the lyrics so you can sing along. Dress accordingly.”
