For months I have been waiting for Lady Gaga to come to Vancouver.
I was unbelievably excited for the concert, but even as I was sitting in my seat at Roger’s Place, I had no idea I was about to be inducted into the Little Monster fan club and swept away by the superstar’s Fame Monster or her Madonna-like “liberation” phenomenon.
Gaga was in a whole other league compared to any other concert I’d seen.
Everything from her costumes, to the show’s intricate story line, to the outfits sported by her Little Monsters turned the concert into a 4D experience where the show didn’t just take place on stage, but throughout the entire arena: the fans were just as much a part of her show as her dancers and back-up singers.
And as a part of her show, I made sure to sing along to every one of her hits.
It was a surreal experience seeing the songs, known for their provocative music videos as well as their catchiness, performed live on stage.
It was also a nice surprise to see some variation in the dance sequences: in other words, the show wasn’t as “shocking” as her videos, but just as entertaining.
I can’t say enough good things about Gaga’s show, and even 16 hours after it ended, I’m still feeding off of her incessant energy.
But the show was phenomenal, and Lady Gaga is a talented singer, pianist and really connects with the audience.
As a newly inducted Little Monster, I can’t wait to see her the next time she comes to town.
