Lady Gaga Concert

We went to the Lady Gaga concert on November 20, and it was absolutely amazing.  We misunderstood the timing of the concert and so we arrived when she had already started, which was a huge bummer, but I think we only missed a couple of songs.  I'd wanted to go to a Lady Gaga concert for a while, but they are so expensive in the US and I could never justify it to myself to spend that much money on a concert.  But it was slightly cheaper here (about $75 per person instead of $100), and it somehow seems easier to justify expensive things when we're here because it's "part of our travel experience."  Don't get me wrong, we're still being just as frugal as we always are in day-to-day things, but we have had a few more expensive splurges than we normally would (e.g. Machu Picchu).

So the Lady Gaga concert.  It was worth every penny.  We paid for the cheapest seats, but since we got there late it took no effort to just walk right in to the middle open area, rather than going to the back where our seats actually were.  So we were closer than we expected, which was awesome!  If you know anything about her, you would know that Lady Gaga had to change her outfit multiple times during the concert, and she did not let us down.  You can sort of see her first costume in the screen in this picture:

The set for the concert was this awesome moving castle thing with all different styles of lighting and moving parts.  Unfortunately it's really hard to take good pictures at concerts, so they're pretty blurry.  But hopefully this gives you the idea:

For the song Electric Chapel, the castle was lit with multicolored lights:

Here's us with the Electric Chapel stage in the background.  You can tell by how weird my neck looks that it was a self-taken picture :)

For a couple of songs there was this weird glowing face that had some parts of it (mouth and eyes) moving and some parts fixed (the rest of the face).  I think it was not actually Lady Gaga behind the face.  It's the thing on the right of this picture that looks like it could be the moon:

No great pictures, but definitely a great concert.  I would definitely do it again!
