After much talk about Lady Gaga’s nearly completed follow-up album, the world got it’s first taste of some new material from the pop superstar at her performance at Elton John’s White Tie and Tiara Ball last Thursday.

While seated at one of her signature deconstructed pianos, Gaga told the crowd: “This is a brand-new record that no one’s ever heard before. And I’ve never, ever played it live, ever.” Gaga goes on to describe the new song, titled “You and I,” as “a bit of a rock n roll tune.”

Lady Gaga announces more Monster Ball tour dates and Lollapalooza

Lady Gaga’s headlining slot on Lollapalooza was confirmed this week, as she and her Monster Ball tour mates / longtime friends Semi Precious Weapons take the stage at the monster of all summer festivals Aug. 6 – 8 at Grant Park in downtown Chicago. For full line-up, tickets and details, visit http://2010.lollapalooza.com. This will be Gaga’s second Lollapalooza performance: a pre-fame, pre-monster, relatively unkown, brunette Gaga performed in 2007, earning her critical acclaim and spawning her meteoric rise to superstar status.

Over the past few weeks, Lady Gaga has reached unprecedented milestones as a true digital music trailblazer. She was the first franchise to rack up more than 1 billion total online video views (“Poker Face,” “Bad Romance,” and “Just Dance”), according to online analytics company Visible Measures, which tallied the plays on clips that made its “100 Million Views Club” list. She’s also the only artist of the digital era to top the 5 million sales mark with her first two hit singles, a record she broke when “Poker Face” reached 5 million in sales after her debut single, “Just Dance,” accomplished that feat last year.

Lady Gaga Announces 2010 Monster Ball Summer Tour

Lady Gaga, one of the most exciting and innovative new artists in recent history, has announced her highly anticipated return to North America on the heels of her sold-out European tour. The 2010 North American leg of The Monster Ball Tour, presented by Virgin Mobile, will begin on June 28 at Montreal’s Bell Centre, taking her spectacular show to 31 top arenas and a host of new cities in the U.S. and Canada throughout the summer and fall.

In keeping with Lady Gaga’s flair for the theatrical, as well as her innovative and creative spirit, the second leg of the tour promises to push the limits of the live concert experience, bringing fans a spectacle even more eye-popping than what they experienced during the thrilling first leg of The Monster Ball.

“It’s still called Monster Ball, but it’s more of a musical and less of a concert,” Lady Gaga said in a February interview with KIIS-FM’s Ryan Seacrest. “It has a New York theme, it’s a story, and the story is that me and my friends are in New York and we’re going to the Monster Ball, and we get lost.”

Critics around the world raved about the first leg of The Monster Ball Tour, which Gaga described as “the first-ever pop-electro opera.” The Sun called it “breathtaking stuff” and “the best live show you will see this year,” while London’s Independent wrote: “Gaga’s got it, which is why, right now, the whole pop world wants to take a ride on her disco stick.” Writing about her show at Radio City Music Hall, the New York Times noted that “her Monster Ball tour always provided something worth a snapshot: a sci-fi tableau, perhaps, or a skimpy, glittery costume. The more her image gets around, the better Lady Gaga does.”

Live Nation Global Touring is the International tour promoter and producer for The Monster Ball under the direction of Arthur Fogel, CEO Global Touring and Chairman – Global Music Live Nation who said: “Lady Gaga has set out to revolutionize pop music and with her new production she continues to do exactly that. We’re thrilled to take The Monster Ball to fans around the world.”

Lady Gaga is touring in support of The Fame Monster, which was released on November 18, 2009, by Streamline/Konlive/Cherrytree/Interscope. The album is the follow-up to 2008’s Grammy Award-winning album The Fame, which spawned the No. 1 singles “Just Dance” and “Poker Face.” Combined, The Fame and The Fame Monster have sold 10 million albums worldwide, while Lady Gaga’s five singles, “Just Dance,” “Poker Face,” “Lovegame,” “Paparazzi,” and “Bad Romance,” have sold in excess of 30 million copies total. The video for “Bad Romance” has racked up more than 125 million online views. Lady Gaga recently premiered the video for her new single “Telephone,” featuring Beyoncé, on the E! television network and entertainment website VEVO.
