Bigger than Obama? San Francisco Goes Ga Ga over Lady Gaga at the Bill Graham

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

Did you miss Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball tour at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium? Well click here and you’ll be transported there in a jiffy through the magic of digital video.

How would you rate her stage energy in this “first-ever pop electro opera” compared to that of, let’s say…. a drugged Britney Spears? (Perhaps Lady Gaga missed her morning coffee the past few days, just saying….)

Anyway, she was the biggest thing to hit Civic Center since Barack Obama’s visit to the BGCA back in Ought-Seven. Is she Bigger Than Obama these days?  

Can LGG sing Poker Face upside down? Yes, Yes She Can.


Of course the True Fans waited in line all day, powered by California Pizza Kitchen and whatnot. Did the nearby CPK on Van Ness send over some free pies to those at the head of the line? Que bueno!

But don’t go gaga if you see a big bus (camera left) with “Lady Gaga” written on the side. Her real bus (should she need it) will be a unmarked million-dollar job, like the one on the right: 


All this mania is quite a switch compared to her appearance at The Mezanine in the SoMA just nine months ago, the last time she came to town.

Bon courage to all those on this Monster Ball tour.

OMGG! Lady Gaga’s arrival in San Francisco will be our early Christmas present.

President Obama came to the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium a couple years back – will LG be Bigger than Barack?

Only Time Will Tell.

International pop superstar Lady Gaga today announced plans for her next North American tour, entitled “The Monster Ball.”  The tour will begin on November 27 in Montreal, and will wind up on January 21, 2010 in Gaga’s hometown, New York City.  Kid Cudi will be the supporting act for the entire tour.

Lady Gaga will release a re-package of her breakthrough album, The Fame, called The Fame Monster, earlier that week, on November 23.  The re-package will include eight brand new songs, including the club-banging first single “Bad Romance.”  Continues Lady Gaga, “A message to all my little monsters: The Fame Monster will come out four days before the first live show.  You have exactly 96 hours to learn all of the lyrics so you can sing along.  Dress accordingly.”
