Lady Gaga's Tour on Schedule, Finally
By COLLEEN TRACHY
Hot off winning three VMAs and performing at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, Lady Gaga will finally play two rescheduled dates from her spring “Fame Ball” tour on Sept. 28 and Sept. 29.
The original leg of “The Fame Ball” ran from March 12 to May 2 earlier this year. The shows, originally scheduled for April 2 in Washington, D.C. and April 3 in Richmond, were moved because of her appearance on “American Idol” and illness.
On Sept. 28 Lady Gaga will take the stage at the Landmark Theater in Richmond after rescheduling the show three times. The original venue, Toad’s Place, closed because of financial difficulties last March. The show was moved to the National, then changed to the Landmark Theater for Sept. 24. The date was then changed again to Sept. 28 at the Landmark Theater.
The following night, Sept. 29, Lady Gaga and her “Haus of Gaga” will make up the Washington, D.C. date at DAR Constitution Hall.
Both shows start at 8 p.m. The Landmark Theater will accept tickets purchased for Toad’s Place and The National. Tickets are sold out, but fans of Lady Gaga can catch her on tour with Kanye West on their “Fame Kills: Starring Kanye West and Lady Gaga” North American arena tour from November 10, 2009 to January 24, 2010.

Lady Gaga is known for her Andy Warhol-inspired theatricals and over-the-top costumes. She is expected to perform songs off of her multi-platinum album, “The Fame,” including her number one hits “Just Dance,” “Poker Face” and “LoveGame,” as well as her new single, “Paparazzi.” Earlier this year, Lady Gaga’s “Fame Ball” opened to excellent reviews, and if her television performances are any indication, her rescheduled shows will be more than just something to talk about.
