About the show, the Hong Kong Daily News wrote, "Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way Ball' is effortlessly brilliant in both the visual and musical sense," while Seoul Daily said that with her "splendid and unprecedented stage, she is the absolute queen of pop!"
The UK's Daily Telegraph called the Ball "quite spectacular," while affirming that "Lady Gaga occupies pole position as the 21st century's ultimate pop star."
"The Haus of Gaga and I have worked for months conceiving a spectacular stage," Mother Monster 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."
"The Born This Way Ball" is Lady Gaga's first tour since the release of her album, "Born This Way," (Streamline-Konlive-Interscope), which has sold nearly 6 million copies worldwide since its release in May 2011. The album is the follow-up to back-to-back Grammy award-winning albums 2009's "The Fame Monster" and 2008's "The Fame." Combined, "The Fame" and "The Fame Monster" have sold 15 million albums worldwide, while Lady Gaga's hit singles have combined sales of more than 90 million worldwide.
