03 September 2009

Lady GaGa announced her Australian Tour for March 2010 this morning and when take40.com quizzed her yesterday on what the tour would entail it was as bizarre and wonderful as you would expect from a woman as eccentric as Lady Gaga.

In the past we've seen GaGa on stage in some pretty outrageous outfits, using props including disco sticks, motorbikes and more. We asked GaGa what her inspiration was this time around.

"Well it's a mixture of monster sci-fi movies from the 1950's as well as S&M and bondage and um, Walt Disney," Lady GaGa tells take40.com.

And how does she intend to combine Walt Disney and S&M?

"You'll have to come and see," she answers coyly.

But a set that we can expect to be nothing but bizarre and amazing is not the only thing GaGa has up her sleeve.

"The tour next year is going to be entirely designed by one of the greatest designers that ever lived and I'm not going to reveal his name just yet. We've already started discussing the show and it's just going to be incredible!"

"The grandness of the show, the scale is going to be much bigger - im playing in arenas now," Lady GaGa continues. "Although I was opening for the [Pussycat] Dolls in arenas you cant have as many things because you have to do changeover, someone has to come on after you, your set has to be very movable very quickly. So now I can do whatever I want."

The 'Paparazzi' singer told take40.com that we can also expect to see some new material in this tour.

"I'm putting out my re-release this fall (or spring here in Australia). Its call 'The Fame Monster' and it's all this new material that I wrote while I was on the road and it's meant to be life after 'The Fame'."

Lady GaGa brings her arena tour to Australia in March 2010, with tickets going on sale at 2pm Wednesday September 16. Click here for all the tour details!
