While Lady Gaga’s performance at the Brit Awards on Tuesday was a heartfelt tribute to her late friend, designer Alexander McQueen , the show served as a preview for the next phase of her Monster Ball Tour , which launches in England on February 18 before moving on to New Zealand, Australia and Japan in March. In an interview with London’s 95.8 Capital-FM on Tuesday, the singer spilled a few new details on what her fans can expect.
“The show is a musical, it’s not just a pop show, there are lines and a score — there’s a lot of music that you haven’t heard before. Some of it’s very old, some of it’s new, there are scores specifically for the show itself,” Gaga said. “The show’s completely different and I have some really amazing surprises, and it’s unlike anything I’ve done before.”
She also spoke a bit about the bizarre keytar that she played during the Brit Awards, which turns out to be the Haus of Gaga’s latest innovation.
“We have this new instrument that I brought to the Brits tonight, ’Emma,’ which is what I was playing on the stage. She’s a hybrid from all these other instruments, which is quite funny to deal with,” she explained.
Earlier this month, Gaga spoke with Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM show about the tour, noting its city vibe.
“It’s still called Monster Ball, but it’s more of a musical and less of a concert. 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,” she told Seacrest.
