If you are a big fan of Lady Gaga and had you been in Bangkok, Thailand in May 2012, you would have had an absolute ball. Simply because the lady in question stunned the audience with her antics at her Born this way Ball at the Rajamangala National Stadium. But not to worry, I'm sure she'll be back again soon to cheer you on.
Since you are here, perhaps you'd like to spend a little time viewing some of the superstar's hit videos such as Poker Face, Alejandro, (my all time favourite) Paparazzi, (wow) Bad Romance (a real bad ass performance) and Telephone the duet with Beyonce (one of the best artistic and choreographed videos ever) Don't forget to watch the videos on full screen and with the volume in overdrive.
Initially, I wasn't taken in by Lady Gaga when she first appeared in the spotlight and never thought I'd become a fan, but now I am completely hooked. And now that I have placed all these magnificent music videos on my page here, I just couldn't help but tune in and listen to them all over and over again.
Unfortunately, I won't be in Bangkok during the time span of the Born this way Ball tour, but I will try to catch up with the singing sensation on one of her other tour dates around South East Asia, New Zealand or Australia. But if you should be in Bangkok on the 25th May 2011, love her music as well as her live performances, then you should definitely not miss this amazing and auspicious occasion.
If you have been following in the footsteps of Lady Gaga, you'll be aware that this 5-time Grammy Award Winner, will not only be performing a great many of her hit songs from her latest album Born This Way but also some of her magical form from both The Fame and The Fame Monster albums. If her videos are anything to go by, this brand new concert is going to be an absolute blast.
Those of you who were fortunate to be present at The Monster Ball concert, which captivated a huge audience worldwide, will know that Lady Gaga received rave reviews wherever she performed. At the time it was one of the best live shows ever and the Born this way Ball is going to literally tear the roof down.
The Born This Way Ball concert will be held on Friday, May 25, 2012 at 7:30 P.M. Tickets for the concert can be purchased from ThaiTicketMajor at 1,500 Baht, ($50) 2,500 Baht, ($83) 3,500 Baht, ($115) 4,500 Baht ($150) and 7,000 Baht ($233) respectfully. Whatever the price it is sure to be well worth every penny.
For the average Thai, many of these prices may seem a little on the pricey side but if you can afford to stretch the budget, dig a wee deeper into your pocket, try to get up as close as possible to the stage. And I probably don't have to tell you this but it's best to book your seats early to avoid any disappointments.
Rajamangala National Stadium is the national stadium of Thailand and the home stadium for Thailand's national football team. It's also known as Hua Mark Indoor Stadium and located in Khwaeng Hua Mak, Khet Bang Kapi, Bangkok. It has the capacity to hold up to 50,000 people and was officially opened in 1998.
The only real downside to getting to this particular stadium in Bangkok is that there is no public transport servicing the venue. In fact, some of the other stadiums have also presented public transport problems and a great source of frustration for fans. Please be aware that both the Sky Trains as well as the underground subway trains do not stop anywhere near the stadium.
The best way to get to Rajamangala National Stadium is by bus or taxi. Buses pass fairly close to the stadium but not at the stadium itself. I believe Suvarnabhumi Airport serves as a link to the stadium via the City Line at Ramkhamhaeng Station but I think it's safe to say... It's better to go by taxi.
