January 11. That's when Lady Gaga will kick off the North American leg of the Born This Way Ball tour, people! That's right, American and Canadian little monsters will get their Gaga fix. The Mother Monster will return her native continent for a tour this coming winter.

Gaga shared the dates via a tweet and her LittleMonsters.com site, sharing a circular graphic with the dates inside. You can view the dates to the left. The first show is set for  Jan. 11 in Vancouver, B.C. She will then travel back down into the U.S. and across the country, through the midwest and back up into Canada during the coldest months of the year, so we hope her caravan of vehicles plays it safe, since it'll likely be freezing with lots of ice on the ground.

Hopefully, Gaga will bring her BF Taylor Kinney with her to help her stay safe and warm during her winter trek.

The last date of this leg hits Miami, Florida on March 16, so she will brave the cold only to bring the heat, hanging out in and near Florida right around the time of spring break and her birthday.

The tour should line up with the promotion and possible the release of 'ARTPOP.' We are dying to see new songs live and that insane, castle-like stage set up in front of our faces and in real time. The rest of the world has had their share of Gaga this summer and fall. But in Winter 2013, she will be all ours.
