Lady Gaga artRAVEs Dubai
Lady Gaga sure rocked the stage at Meydan Racecourse last night, as she presented her Dubai fans with an impressive stage set, high energy performances and an abundance of colour, glitter and funky costumes.
The pop superstar did not disappoint, as she showed off her A game, in terms of a spectacular stage show and of course, her fabulous sense for freaky fashion.
Starting off with a few songs from her latest ARTPOP album, Gaga warmed up the crowd with hits like G.U.Y, getting them ready for her most popular hits. With cheers starting out a bit reserved, maybe due to the fact that it was incredibly hot and the audience was still gearing up to hear all the familiar sing-alongs from Gaga's hit album The Fame, noise levels throughout the audience significantly increased when Just Dance came on and Gaga continued on with her most popular hits, not leaving any of the favourites out. From Paparazzi to Pokerface, all the way to an acoustic version of Born This Way, Gaga did not fail to please.
The eccentric fashionista she is, Lady Gaga retracted backstage after every other song to come back on with a new creative custome. Ranging from a glittery mermaid bodysuit, to a polka-dotted octopus leotard, all combined with a new crazy wig respectively, the pop star presented a full fashion fiesta of Gaga-esque looks. And her line-up of talented dancers followed with multiple new sets of looks throughout the show.
An emotional Lady Gaga stopped performances in between, to express her love for the UAE, her amazing experience of hospitality in Dubai and to educate her little monsters on the concept of her artRAVE movement, equality and harmony.
Was she controversial in her looks, performance and with things she said onstage? Of course she was, it wouldn't be a Lady Gaga concert otherwise.
All in all, an enjoyable show with vibrant dancing, fabulous dress-ups and that little bit of Gaga drama.
