Lady Gaga does not disappoint.
In the opening night of the European leg of her Monster Ball tour, the envelope-pushing performer was electrifying as she took to the stage in Manchester, England.
With fifteen outfit changes, nineteen songs and four acts, the show was a feast for the eyes. Gaga not only writhed atop a flaming piano, she also let loose a 40-foot tentacled "monster" onstage as 23,000 fans looked on in amazement.
Always in the mood for experimenting, the singer had scrapped the format from her US shows and started anew. The European tour's production was put together in only four weeks.
"I got very bored, so I threw it away," she told the BBC.
Next, she will take her act to Dublin, London, Auckland, Sydney, Perth, and Osaka.
