Lady Gaga Planning 450-Date World Tour?
Lady Gaga is ambitious. We know this already, since she scratched and clawed her way out of the Lower East Side to ascend into the pop stratosphere, breaking a lot of dagger-shaped nails in the process. But now she's riding high and is the biggest pop star on earth. That's why the rumor that she is planning a record-breaking, 450-date global tour doesn't shock us! It's typical of Gaga to plan a tour that's bigger than the towering stiletto heels she is known for wearing.
The Sun reports that Gaga aims to eradicate U2's recently notched record for the highest grossing and most attended tour of all time. The band's 360 tour stands as the most successful tour ever. Gaga wants to beat the Irish rock band's record and claim the touring throne -- and the idea isn't just a dream, either. It actually came to her in a dream.
"As is always the case with Gaga, the plans came to her in her sleep," a source said. "She has a target of 450 dates. It has never been done before, but she's doesn't think that's a reason not to try." Like Yoda says, "Do or do not. There is no try." That's certainly a Gaga mantra.
The tour would reportedly launch in Asia and India sometime next year.
450 dates, though? Gaga is known for going all in and for her dedication and her work ethic, but 450 dates is a lot. Like a whole lot. Little monsters all over the globe no doubt want to see her face, her costumes, her wigs, her heels and her performances. But this would be a massive undertaking that would require a lot of people to be as dedicated as Gaga is in order to get it done.
While Gaga is likely trying to take advantage of the height of her fame, she could also risk wearing herself down to a nub. How many times have we seen ambitious divas end up hospitalized from exhaustion? No one, not even Gaga, is immune to that. Then again, we'd love to see her try to accomplish this goal. Nothing has ever stopped her before.
