This leg of the Born This Way Ball began in April 2012 in Seoul, South Korea, and has passed through Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.

"The Haus of Gaga and I have worked for months conceiving a spectacular stage," she said. "The Born This Way Ball is an Electro-Metal Pop-Opera; the tale of the Beginning, the genesis of the Kingdom of Fame. How we were birthed and how we will die celebrating."

Sounds like a real hoot.
