Lady Gaga has released the stage design for her upcoming worldwide tour, artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball tour.
The stage design appears rich and Greek – supporting the aesthetics of tracks such as ‘Venus’ that feature on Gaga’s most recent album – that has been adapted to a galactic and ethereal look.
The stage branches off to several runways, one of whose tip is the the ARTPOP Zone: an elevated seating area for the most dedicated of Little Monsters who have paid for the experience to be practically on-stage with the ‘Do What U Want’ singer.
Lady Gaga has described the stage as ‘lucite,’ claiming that ‘you can just dance underneath the runways’.

The tour begins on May 4th in North America, eventually reaching the UK on October 15th where Gaga will play three dates at London’s O2 Arena.
The tour is in support of the star’s most recent album, ARTPOP, which debuted at number one in both the UK and the US. The album features singles ‘Applause’ and ‘Do What U Want’.
Recently, Lady Gaga gave a keynote speech at SXSW, where she revealed that the currently unknown new single’s video will be released this coming Saturday. Rumours surrounding the upcoming single’s identity revolve around both ‘G.U.Y.’ and ‘Venus’.
Over the weekend, a previously unheard track by Gaga titled ‘Brooklyn Nights’ was leaked online.
