Lady GaGa Electrifies UCF

Filed under: Popular Music — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 01:53

View Image In one of the absolute best concert experiences I’ve ever had (and I’ve seen A LOT of live performances throughout the years), pop superstar Lady GaGa brought her Monster Fame Ball to Orlando Sunday night. Playing before a sold-out at-capacity crowd of over 10,000 at the UCF Arena, GaGa sang almost every song from her new album The Fame Monster, and a large portion of her debut album The Fame. The gigantic stage was flanked by enormous electric projection screens which not only hid the background musicians (rising several times to reveal the live band dressed in some pretty cool costumes), but had visual projections which accented the performances perfectly. In the forefront, Lady GaGa sang and danced alongside her army of dancers. The choreography was amazingly unique and the entire spectacle continued to solidify GaGa as the next mega-superstar.

The concert opened with “Dance in the Dark” from The Fame Monster which GaGa sang behind a thin screen with digitally-projected images in-front of her. The screen soon lifted as she burst into her first #1 single “Just Dance.” The concert then settled into most of the tunes from her new The Fame Monster, highlighted by an amazing 15-minute piano interlude which saw performances of “Speechless” and an acoustic version of “Poker Face.” But the dance tunes again ruled supreme with rocking numbers from The Fame, including “Love Game,” “Paparazzi,” and “Poker Face.” The show ended with GaGa’s highly energetic and most-recent #1 song “Bad Romance.” The crowd didn’t stop to breathe one-time! Everyone danced the night away while partying with Lady GaGa, who is on-pace to be the next Madonna. And from the incredible 2-hour long spectacle of theatrics, vocals, choreography, and talent shown to Orlando on Sunday, it is apparent this super-star is well on her way!
