As promised, the lowdown on the Lady Gaga concert.
By the time I got there (got lost in the park for a while) it was 8pm, and because I came from the 'top' of the slope area.... my friend and I had the chance to see the Lady herself just arriving, in a black car, with her entourage in another black car, and 2 white vans. That was amazing, even though all we saw was the top of her head...
The opening act, though entertaining and happening-- I felt was LONGER than the concert itself, in which Lady Gaga performed for just 1 hour. I don't think she sang all the songs from her album... but each song she performed was spectacular, and she did the PR thing, you know, 'I love Singapore, I love chilli crab' endearing, yes, especially when she said it's her first time performing on her own for such a big audience ( think the papers reported 10000+ turn out).
Well, I didn't managed to squeeze all the way to the front row, but I would say my friend and I were standing about 50m away from the stage. It was needless to say, HOT, stuffy, sweaty and when pple raised their arms, you wish you have a mini fan with you for ventilation. Hahaha.......Thankfully, I was wearing my comfy white tee and leggings, so no worries of any wardrobe malfunction, and no stickiness from rubbing arms and shoulders with other sweaty bodies.
Here is a pic I took outside the entrance (when the concert was over). I am wearing Smoke & Diamonds and Plummage on my eyes - not that you can really see - I had NO time to do my makeup, and had to major RUSH to the venue.
I bought a tee-shirt from the merchandise tent. $40 each. How cute are the colors!!
This is the screen they used to cover the stage while setting up.
Another hot sweaty pic after the concert and everyone was moving out.
Her 2nd outfit... a red leather thingy, and that giant keyboard thingy.. she was wearing this wig which covered half her face.
Her last outfit, which is a patent nude bra and panty thingy... and the piano is priceless. She was wearing a matching 'bubble' jacket too, but I didn't zoom my camera close enough to get a clear shot. Here, she played Brown Eyes and Pokerface. She also sang the disco version of Pokerface as her finale song.
And oooo check out the buns! :) she was practically 'making love' to the piano, if you know what I mean.
If you can see the matching bubble jacket and piano. And check out the digital cam/ phones, everyone dying to capture the moment.
All in all, it was an awesome performance with impressive showmanship (IMO), and if she comes here again, I would want to go!! All hail Lady Gaga!
