Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Ball Heads to North America in 2013

Lady Gaga is pretty much in the news always, but it’s not usually for honest-to-goodness functional newsworthiness. (She has, in the last 24 hours, ridden a bicycle, gotten a tattoo, and reduced her alcohol content.) This morning she announced the first North American installment of her globe-trotting Born This Way Ball via Twitter. The massive tour kicked off in South Korea in April, and will hit Vancouver for its first 2013 stop on January 11 before dipping down into the States and running through mid-March. No openers have been announced yet, but Gaga has a tradition of hand-picking lesser-knowns to break, so here’s hoping for Django Django or Trinidad James. The Lady’s fourth album ARTPOP is due out in 2013 and is reported to include collaborations with BTW European opener Zedd, SPIN cover star Azealia Banks and, yes, Whitesnake guiarist Doug Aldrich.
