Lady Gaga makes a stop in Dallas, Texas
This past Thursday and Friday Lady Gaga did two concerts, one each night. She additionally made a stop at S4, the premiere gay club in Dallas, on Wednesday night. I attended the the Friday night concert, and I have to say it was phenomenol.
The band "Semi-Precious Weapons" opened for Lady Gaga and they were entertaining to say the least. With a set of glam rock numbers coupled with a stream of expletives, and on stage costume changes. They put on quite a show. And I learned that Lady Gaga used to open for them which is something I did not know.
After a short set change Lady Gaga's portion of the show began. She opened with "Dance in the Dark" while posing behind a large screen that encircled the stage. After that she performed a song exclusive to the tour called "Glitter and Grease". She did a great job of making sure to perform one of her big hits frequently enough during the concert to keep the audience happy. Artistically the real hi-light of the concert came when she sat down at the piano to do her ballad "Speechless". Prefaced by a heartwarming if slightly cynical speech about her father and all the "Drunk a--holes" in her life, her performance showcased both her humanity and musicianship.
Lady Gaga then gave her audience a real treat with a performance of her song "You and I" which will be on her upcoming album. Other key points of the concert included her "living" dress for the performance of "So Happy I Could Die", the angel fountain that spewed blood tinted water during "Alejandro", and a giant monster that looked like something out of a Tim Burton movie for "Papparazzi". But the best part of the evening was when Lady Gaga came back out for an encore of "Bad Romance"
All in all I would say the concert was an evening of overtop antics that managed to keep an air of artistry about them. And this was a concert that I think will be remembered as the true beginning of pop music's next legend.
