LADY Gaga has announced that she will be bringing her latest tour to Europe in typically bonkers style.

Tickets for The Born This Way Ball go on sale on Thursday, and the tour will reach Manchester Arena on September 11.

"The Haus of Gaga and I have worked for months conceiving a spectacular stage,” said Lady Gaga. “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.”

So that’s that cleared up then. The tour will be the first since the release of Born This Way, which has sold six million copies to date.

Tickets cost £60 to £80, and go on sale at 9am. To book, visit or ring 0844 847 8000.
