HBO Goes Gaga: MSG Shows Get Concert Special

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — If you haven’t been able to get tickets for Lady Gaga’s shows at Madison Square Garden later this month then HBO has you covered.

Check Out Photos Of Lady Gaga At The Grammy Awards!

The Feb. 21 and Feb. 22 shows will be taped for a documentary on Gaga’s “Monster Ball” tour. The concert special will be televised on May 7, two weeks before the singer releases her highly-anticipated sophomore album “Born This Way.”

The special will be directed by one of Lady Gaga’s choreographers, Lauriann Gibson. 

The tour has paid homage to Gaga’s New York City roots. The concert plays out like a pop-opera taking on a “Wizard Of Oz” theme as Gaga and her friends get lost in New York on their way to the “Monster Ball.” Though it’s hard to imagine Gaga being able to top the show, which even featured a blood fountain, HBO promised Gaga will bring some brand new moves to the special.

The queen of gore and glamous was carried into the Grammys Sunday in a giant egg before performing the title track to her upcoming album put. She won three Grammys for her latest album “The Fame Monster”. (Check out the other Grammy winners here!)

    She should get an original act. Its been done already by David Bowie, Elton John and Madonna. How about focusing on any talent she may have.

    Bob – your perception is that everyone should be “normal”, which I assume you think you are. And to that, I say, who wants to be “normal’? Ejoy your life. Say and show how you feel. If you are eccentric, why should you pretend not to be. I’ll bet you are a gay-hater. I am straight, but people don’t always choose who they are. They are “born that way”. And that’s what Gaga is singing about. It’s not deep. It’s very “in your face”. Deal with it, and if you are happy with your stepford wife, then life your life, and let others live theirs. You are not the judge on humanity……or even just Lady Gaga.

      Well said, Barbi! I typically find the haters who say people should act “normal” almost always have dirty little secrets in their lives that they divert attention from by pointing fingers at others. Gaga is quite clearly comfortable in her own skin. If only we could all be so bold and also accepting of others with this quality.

  4. Bob Lanese says:

    Sorry to say this but, Lady Gaga is a freak, why can’t she put on some cloths and try to act normal……..

      And by the way, she is an entertainer. Don’t be afraid. She’s not going to “get” you.
