Review: Lady Gaga brings big-city spectacle to Tampa's St. Pete Times Forum




It was the concert on everyone's mind Saturday night: Lady Gaga at Tampa's St. Pete Times Forum. Could it possibly live up to the hype? OUR hype? There was no way, right?

Not so fast. Sean Daly was there in the capacity crowd, and his review called the Tampa concert

an expectedly eye-bugging party that commenced (at 9:55 p.m., no less) with a massive throbbing wraparound screen revealing a silhouetted purple Gaga cooing Dance in the Dark.

Soon enough, the star, prone to frozen poses and purple body suits and lemon hair and rump flashes, frolicked on a multi-tiered neon-lit stage made to look like a trashy metropolis, complete with a beater car with crucifixes on the windshield and a piano under the hood, a slick touch in a night full of 'em.
