Gaga is coming! Gaga is coming!
Okay, so it's not until early 2013. But today, the freak-queen of gloss-pop, meatsuits, and gender-bending award show appearances announced a new North American leg of her Born This Way Ball World Tour, and it includes a stop -- for just one night -- here in the Bay Area.
Gaga will perform Jan. 17 at HP Pavilion in San Jose -- the night before pop star Pink is scheduled to play the same venue. Madeon and Lady Starlight are opening Gaga's show, and tickets go onsale this Friday at 10 a.m. (There's also a presale for members of Gaga's social networking site, Littlemonsters.com.) Prices range from $63 to $197.28, including fees, and can be bought at Ticketmaster.
