The singer praises her Little Monsters after opening night performance in South Korea.

Lady Gaga has admitted she struggled to sleep after kicking off her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour in South Korea on Friday (27th April).

The singer's performed to over 50,000 people at Seoul's Olympic Stadium, despite protests ahead of the gig which meant only those over 18 could attend.

The performance was the second biggest ever in the country behind the later Michael Jackson.

Fans have widely praised Lady Gaga's set, which included songs from her albums 'The Fame Monster' and 'Born This Way'.

Taking to Twitter this morning, Lady Gaga said: "I could barely sleep last night. It was the 2nd highest attendance of fans in the History of concerts in Korea."

In another Twitter, she added: "I'm so grateful for all of you, thank you monsters. Last night was like being completely prepared for a moment you could never prepare for."

The 'Born This Way Ball' tour is due to call in the UK in September, when Lady Gaga will play two nights at Twickenham Stadium in London.
