Mama monster has given all of her little monsters a gift: Lady Gaga has released a sneak preview of the stage design for her upcoming tour, the Born this Way Ball.
Gaga tweeted the artist's rendering at midnight, which revealed an elaborate medieval castle replete with a fortress wall that doubles as a runway. She explained the set via Twitter, writing:
"To give you a bit of insight on the design of my new tour, the central area within the stage will be known as 'The Monster Pit.' ”
She goes on to say that the enclosed area will be reserved for fans with general admission tickets who waited all night and are "dressed to Ball."
Gaga released the set design after a strategic build up on Twitter, and perhaps not coincidentally, she's the first earthling (we assume) to hit 18 million followers.
