Get ready to party, because Lady Gaga is bringing “artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball” to Tel Aviv.
The international tour following her album ARTPOP, featuring hits like “Applause,” “Do What You Want” and “G.U.Y.,” will reach Park Hayarkon on September 13, producers Udi Appelboim, Ronen Miley, Bookmark Entertainment and Live Nation Global Touring announced Sunday.
Tickets will go on sale on Wednesday, June 11 at 8 a.m. on the Le’an website, but there is a pre-sale on Monday for her “Little Monsters,” as she calls her fan club. Ticket prices begin at NIS 370, with VIP tickets for NIS 1250 and Golden Ring tickets for NIS 1450.
The provocative pop star’s latest tour already sold 775,000 tickets in 35 cities around the world and includes set changes and complex choreography and several costumes – including a polka-dot octopus suit and giant gold wings (but not a dress made of raw meat).
Lady Gaga was clearly not intimidated by the unimpressive efforts by the BDS movement to stop her from performing in Israel. A petition started by BDS Amsterdam garnered only a measly 1,098 signatures.
The pop singer previously performed in Israel in 2009, at Non-Stop Musix, a two-day festival sponsored by Pelephone.
