Third Lady Gaga show confirmed
She's once, twice, three times a Lady and New Zealand loves her.
With two Vector Arena shows already sold out, a third and final night has been confirmed for Lady Gaga's world tour.
Tickets for Lady Gaga's Born This Way Ball, set for June, went on sale last week and the response was so strong promoters have announced a third show for June 10.
The first two shows - June 7 and 8 - were almost instant sell outs.
The Vector Arena shows will be Gaga's third trip to New Zealand - she supported the Pussycat Dolls in 2009 before bringing her own headlining shows in 2010.
Her latest tour will feature her latest album Born This Way, as well as songs from both The Fame and The Fame Monster albums.
Gaga describes the upcoming tour as an "electro-metal pop-opera; the tale of the Beginning, the genesis of the Kingdom of Fame. How we were birthed and how we will die celebrating".
The five-time Grammy Award-winner unveiled sketches on Twitter of the set she will be using for the tour.
The pictures showed a gothic castle with intricate details like towers, carvings and a catwalk that extends into the audience.
It is not known if the full production will feature in the New Zealand show. She will take the tour to Australia for six dates after the Auckland shows.
Gaga's 2010 Monster Ball tour was named the Major Tour of the Year by Pollstar Concert Industry and in 2011 the singer was named Forbes' Most Powerful Woman in the World. She previously supported the Pussycat Dolls when they toured NZ in 2009.
Her album Born This Way has sold nearly six million copies worldwide since it was released in May 2011 and her singles have sold more than 65 million copies.
