Chicago, IL, September 21, 2012 — Last week, 5-time Grammy Award winner LADY GAGA and Live Nation Global Touring revealed complete details for North American leg of her The Born This Way Ball World Tour. Following an overwhelming morning of ticket sales, The Born This Way Ball has now confirmed a second show in Chicago on February 14th at United Center. In this brand new tour, Gaga performs her latest album Born This Way as well as music from both The Fame and The Fame Monster. The Born This Way Ball began on April 27th, 2012 in Seoul, South Korea.

Feb. 13 at the United Center is sold out. Tickets for the Feb. 14 second show at United Center go on-sale Friday, Sept. 8 at 10 a.m. at www.LiveNation.com .

Pollstar's 2012 Mid Year report ranks the Born This Way Ball as the top grossing tour by any female artist worldwide this year. About the show, the Hong Kong Daily News wrote "Lady Gaga's Born This Way Ball is effortlessly brilliant in both the visual and musical sense," while Seoul Daily said that with her "splendid and unprecedented stage, she is the absolute queen of pop!" The UK's Daily Telegraph called the Ball "quite spectacular," while affirming that "Lady Gaga occupies pole position as the 21st century's ultimate pop star."

Fans will have first access to ticket pre-sales via LittleMonsters.com on Monday, Sept. 24th. To receive an access code for this exclusive pre-sale, sign up for free at LittleMonsters.com and RSVP to the concert that you wish to attend.
