Article by Joe Sioufi: Right now as I am writing this article Lady Gaga's fans are already camping outside the Toyota Center - Lady Gaga is in town getting ready for her Born This Way Ball. The first few hundred general admission ticket holders will be able to be in the front section called the "Monster Pit" at Lady Gaga's show. Another motivation for arriving so early is the opportunity to meet the pop star in person and go back stage. The first person in line at Lady Gaga's shows becomes the "key holder".

Toyota Center is proud to welcome Lady Gaga back to Houston on Thursday, January 31st! The 5-time Grammy Award winner made her triumphant return to the stage with The Born This Way Ball. In this brand new tour, Gaga performs from her latest album Born This Way as well as music from both The Fame and The Fame Monster.

Who is Lady Gaga? Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, born March 28, 1986, known by her stage name Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, activist, businesswoman, fashion designer, actress and philanthropist.

Lady Gaga came to prominence as a recording artist following the release of her debut album, The Fame (2008), which was a critical and commercial success that topped charts around the world and included the international number-one singles "Just Dance" and "Poker Face." After embarking on the The Fame Ball Tour, she followed the album with The Fame Monster (2009), which spawned the worldwide hit singles "Bad Romance," "Telephone," and "Alejandro." The Fame Monster's success allowed her to embark on the eighteen-month long Monster Ball Tour, which later became one of the highest-grossing concert tours of all time. Her most recent album, Born This Way (2011), topped the charts of most major markets and generated more international chart-topping singles, including "Born This Way," "Judas," and "The Edge of Glory."

I am a big Madonna Fan but I think Lady Gaga have great potential, great voice and music. So we need to see if she can last as long as Madonna before we call her the Queen of Pop. Madonna had been in the music industry for more than 30 years. I will be at the show tomorrow, and I am sure I will enjoy it.

Have a great show Houston!
