Lady Gaga’s `Born This Way Ball` kick-starts in Seoul with adults-only gig
London: Lady Gaga has started her ‘Born This Way’ Ball tour with a concert in Seoul that barred fans under the age of 18 from attending it.
The run-up to the concert saw protests and demonstrations from activists in the South Korean capital prompting authorities to make the gig an adults-only event earlier this month, a leading news channel has reported.
A small group of Christians staged a rally outside Seoul’s Olympic Stadium, where around 45,000 fans saw the singer belting out hits like ‘Poker Face’ and ‘Judas’. The tour will resume on 2 May with the first of four dates in Hong Kong.
Activists in Seoul have been protesting over the concert for weeks, claiming the singer was “obscene” and could “taint” young people.
A group calling itself the Civilians Network against the Lady Gaga Concert said her performance was “too homosexual and pornographic”.
Many fans wore versions of the singer’s flamboyant costumes as they arrived at the event on Friday.
Those who attended saw the pop artist introduce some new designs, among them a leotard formed from four guitars and a giant piano keyboard headpiece.
The tour’s UK leg kicks off in September with two dates at Twickenham Stadium.
