Lady Gaga begins another worldwide tour April 27, opening in Seoul, South Korea. She is there now and the Fame Monster is being met by Christians and right wing groups who, it seems, don't like her support for gays and, they say, for pornography.
There is a concerted effort in that country by some groups to keep young people away from music and musicians they deem objectionable and there are restrictions on concerts that are similar to the restrictions other countries have on films. Anyone under the age of 18 will not be permitted to attend Lady Gaga's concert.
Lady Gaga protest in Seoul, S. Korea
On Sunday the 22nd in downtown Seoul a coalition of groups is protesting her appearance with 300 expected to attend a group prayer, Agence France Presse (AFP) reported. “We will pray to God that the concert will not be realized so that homosexuality and pornography will not spread around the country,” an organizer, Kang Ju-Hyun, told AFP. Kang did not elaborate.
The tour is in support of her newest album and is called the 'Born This Way Ball.' After one night in Seoul she will play other dates in southeast Asia, including four nights in each of Hong Kong, Tokyo and Singapore, in Australia and New Zealand and then in Europe. They will be dates in America and South America announced as the tour moves along.
