Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way Ball' World Tour To Run For Another Year
22 June 2012, 11:27
The 'Bad Romance' singer's manager suggests her tour will run until around Spring 2013.
Lady Gaga's manager has revealed the singer's current world tour will last at least one more year.
Troy Carter, the 'Marry The Night' singer's longtime manager, says the tour is part of a "long album cycle" and will continue to run until Spring 2013, with more dates expected to be announced later this year.
"It's going to be an additional year before that tour is over," Troy revealed, during his keynote interview at the Music Matters To Me conference. "It's a long album cycle, but it's part of the storytelling."
The music manager also spoke out about the cancelation of Lady Gaga's Jakarta concert, following protests and threats of violence from extremists, and suggested it was simply "a microcosm" rather than specifically targeted at the 'You & I' pop star.
"It's less about Gaga than it really is what's happening in the world right now as a whole," he explained. "It's a generational divide. Jesus Christ got crucified. It happens."
Lady Gaga arrived in Sydney this week to continue her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour, posing outside the Sydney Opera House with fans after her arrival, and said on Twitter that she was having a "lovely time" in the city.
