Lady Gaga Electrifies at U.K. Tour Launch

Lady Gaga thrilled 23,000 fans at Manchester’s M.E.N. Arena on Thursday (Feb. 18) for the opening date of her U.K. “Monster Ball.” The revamped arena version of her “pop-electro opera” features brand-new sets, concepts, and 15 costume changes, but the same outrageous Gaga.

She opened the show with “Dance in the Dark,” performed “Telephone” for the first time on tour, set her piano ablaze during “Speechless,” and shared the stage with a 40-foot mechanical sea monster for “Paparazzi.” Gaga, ooh-la-la!
