AN early candidate for Winnipeg's musical event of 2014 is set for May 22 at the MTS Centre.
Lady Gaga will make her Winnipeg debut that night when she performs in Lady Gaga's artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball.
Tickets go on sale to the general public Monday, Dec. 9 at 10 a.m. at livenation.com and Ticketmaster. Prices, not including service charges, range from $35 to $200. Members of her fan club littlemonsters.com had access to tickets beginning Tuesday afternoon.
Lady Gaga is touring in support of her Artpop album that was released in November and became her second consecutive No. 1 album to reach No. 1 in the United States.
Winnipeg teenager Maria Aragon, who rose to Internet fame in 2011 when a YouTube video of her version of Gaga's hit Born This Way went viral, performed with Lady Gaga at a concert in Toronto in March of that year. There is no word yet whether Aragon will be a part of the Winnipeg show.
In January, Gaga is scheduled to release Cheek to Cheek, a jazz album with Tony Bennett. The two teamed up on The Lady is a Tramp on Bennett's 2011 Duets II album.
