hot ticket: lady gaga in oslo

Okay, well maybe I don’t have sex every day. But when my fans scream, it’s like a series of teeny tiny orgasms.

Lady Gaga, Sentrum Scene, Oslo, 30.07.09

This week was a big concert week for me and Knut. And for Oslo too, where last night Madonna, Lady Gaga and Metallica held their concerts all over the city at the same time.

After Tuesday’s unforgettable Madonna Sticky & Sweet Concert, we went to see Lady Gaga for the Oslo leg of her 2009 World Tour. The venue, Sentrum Scene, was packed with an estimated 1,700-strong audience. Knut and I have been eagearly awaiting Lady Gaga’s concert since we missed the first time she was in Oslo late last year. We found a good spot, not too close to the stage and quite elevated with a better view. The house was thundering as the crowd cheered on Lady Gaga’s name even before she started. The lights went down and a movie vignette called “Who Shot Candy Warhol” started rolling. This segued to Lady Gaga breaking into the opening song “Paparazzi” as she comes out of a box wearing a disco-ball inspired dress and a Venetian mask.

And what followed was an hour-long concert filled with an electrifying slew of monster hits such as “Just Dance” and “Love Game”, a motley series of fiercely fabulous costume changes, feverish audience engagement, a song dedicated to the gay boys of Norway (“Boys, Boys, Boys”, haha!), and the now trademark piano rendition of “Poker Face” (the other slow song she did was “Brown Eyes”), before climaxing into the album version of the Billboard-breaking hit where everyone just went gaga.

    you know, I think Gaga had a concert here yesterday but most people weren’t aware (including me) because of bad promotion. every danish person I know didn’t know that lady gaga would have a concert here.

    I knew of it when I saw your tweet, googled “lady gaga denmark” and saw that she has a concert the day after. naturally, tickets were sold out, kasi nga kinabukasan na.

    kainez. or maybe it was cancelled? biset talaga

    Hi! Lady Gaga is crazy! I’ve just made a mix of her “Love Game” with dialog from The Mighty Boosh, one of my favorite series ever. Check it out on my official site!: DJ Bread n Butter
