A Monster Ball Summer

Lady GaGa turns up the heat this summer with 31 stops in U.S. and Canada beginning in June.

Promising more spectacle than even she is known for, GaGa launches the second leg of The Monster Ball tour in Montreal at the Bell Centre June 28. Boston is next with a show at TD Garden July 1, followed by Atlantic City at Boardwalk Hall July 4 and then on to NYC and Madison Square Garden July 6.

Other stops include Toronto (July 11), Indianapolis (July 15), St. Louis (July 17), Dallas (July 22), Phoenix (July 31), Los Angeles (Aug. 11), San Jose (Aug. 16), Portland (Aug. 19), St. Paul (Aug. 30); Detroit (Sept. 4), Pittsburgh (Sept. 5) and Philadelphia (Sept. 14). Last date on the tour is Sept. 19 in Raleigh at RBC Center.

“It’s still called Monster Ball, but it’s more of a musical and less of a concert,” GaGa told KIIS-FM morning show and “American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest in February. “It has a New York theme, it’s a story, and the story is that me and my friends are in New York and we’re going to the Monster Ball, and we get lost.”
