dressed down, pop monolith Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Tour hit town this year in
a similarly over-the-top fashion. If Gaga’s dress-to-excess policy tends to
dominate the tabloid headlines, the success of her tour is down to much more
earthy qualities. Beyond the pop opera fireworks, the elaborate theatrical
staging and extras like keyboards masquerading as Harleys (sure why not?), The
Born This Way Tour was the biggest and best of the year because it reiterated
all the great about Gaga.
that is great about Gaga is her heart. This chick frickin’ means it. It’s bore
out in her strong and resilient voice; it’s in the performance of Born This
Way, which even if you question the sentiment you can’t deny the force with
which it is argued. And it’s the details: like having her Monster Pit upfront
open to the fans who queue first rather than those with the fattest wallets.
There’s no other gig this year where the fans from 45-year-old mums to 17 year
old gay boys who live their life by this lady, dress up and dedicate themselves
so wholly to a two-hour pop set. So for the fact that she gets that and she
dances like she means it, Lady Gaga is our undisputed live act of the year.
Lady Gaga and The Born this Way Tour can still be seen across the world.
