“Gaga’s Monster Ball tour is one of the greatest concert experiences of my life. I can’t stop thinking about it.” – Tim Stack, Entertainment Weekly
“The chameleonic chanteuse’s Monster Ball tour is a dazzling showcase for the singer-dancer-writer-clotheshorse, but also a tantalizing tease of things to come.” – Ann Powers, Los Angeles Times
“A 40-foot animatronic sea monster, 15 costume changes and a grand piano burning to pieces in the middle of the stage – you certainly get what you pay for at a Lady Gaga concert.” – Mark Savage, BBC
“Lady Gaga out-Cher-ed Cher, made Cirque du Soleil and Britney’s ‘Circus Tour’ look like county fair carnivals, and made New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas anticlimactic.” – Joe Brown, Las Vegas Sun
“While The Monster Ball has nothing on the great operas or the golden age of musical theatre, Lady Gaga’s ‘electro-pop opera’ is at least twice as entertaining and infinitely fresher than any stage musical written over the last decade.” – Kelly Nestruck, The Guardian
