A Monster Ball at American Airlines Center
Once again Lady Gaga packed American Airlines Center with her ‘little monsters’ filling the place to the rafters. It didn’t seem to matter that this was the same show they’d seen only last year. Even the set list was the same. The only major difference was the inclusion of Gaga’s newest single, “Born This Way”, not once, but twice. Sitting at her piano she showed that the song could have a nice, slow side and then finished off the show with an encore of the song as well.
Dressed in their favorite Gaga costumes – or like one woman with a dress made out of condoms, dressed in their own style – the fans were almost as good of a show as the concert itself. But once the show started all of that went away and it was only Gaga and her loyal little monsters and a major love fest. Like her music or not Gaga knows how to put on one hell of a show and she preaches loving yourself no matter what others might say about you.
While that particular message was something to be proud of the profanity, faux blood and crotch grabbing might have been a bit much for the surprisingly numerous children under the age of ten that attended last night. But one thing was certain – everyone left that night feeling a little bit better about themselves and Gaga’s ability blow the roof off of AAC is still firmly intact.
