Lady Gaga coming to the St. Pete Times Forum
Yes, Lady Gaga has announced a few new North American tour dates for 2011, and Tampa is among them. She'll stop at the St. Pete Times Forum on April 16, according to her website. That gives you nearly seven months to stitch together a suit from sequins and meat.
Lady Gaga has a solid history with Tampa, first performing her revue show at G.Bar before ascending to megafame right around the time of her sold-out Ritz Ybor gig -- in fact, Poker Face was the No. 1 song in the country the night she performed there. Since then, all we could do was watch as she became the biggest star in pop music, and one of the biggest and most obsessed-over celebrities on the planet.
According to Ticketmaster, tickets are $49.50-$175. They go onsale Saturday. Click here to buy tickets. We'd be surprised if this show doesn't sell out, but if it does, good news: Gaga is also performing April 15 at Amway Arena in Orlando. Tickets there start at $49.50, too, and they also go onsale Saturday.
