Lady Gaga concert

Last night, Geof took my mom and I to see Lady Gaga in concert at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. As you may remember, this was a belated birthday gift for me and an early one for my mom. My mom may be in her 60’s, but she is a huge fan and so am I. I liked Gaga before she really became what she is today and think she has incredible talent.


Monster Ball!

The morning of the concert was spent rushing around. I went to MAC to have my makeup done for the occasion and then came home and got my outfit together. It felt a little strange since it’s not typically how I dress. My fears were put aside as soon as we arrived at the concert and realized that my outfit was pretty tame compared to some others.


Ready for the concert...big bow headband and all!

We started the night off at one of our favorite restaurants in the city, Jones. It was nice to enjoy dinner before the show and we had a great time. It was also a perfect night in the city weather-wise, so that made it even better. The food at Jones is such a guilty pleasure. I stuck with the usual grilled cheese and tomato soup that I always get when we go there.

We left right from Jones and headed to the show. Geof got us club box tickets and I couldn’t wait to get up there and see the view. We got to our box and you could see everything so perfectly. The opening act was horrible. It was a band called Semi Precious Weapons and they just weren’t for me. I couldn’t wait for it to be over. They played about a half hour and then the stage was set for Gaga.


Me with Geof and my mom

She came on a little after 9 pm and played for a solid 2 hours. This was a show I will never forget. She sang, danced, played the piano and bantered with the audience. It was everything I expected and more. Her voice sounded amazing live and I love how the show told a story of trying to make it to the “Monster Ball”. There were elaborate sets and the show was very creative.






Someone in the crowd threw a Phillies hat onstage and she wore it for a few songs


Playing a fiery piano


That is Gaga in the white costume








I couldn't get a good photo of the monster, so I took a little video clip during Paparazzi. She sounds so good!

I heard all of my favorite songs, Paparazzi, Bad Romance, Just Dance, Love Game, Pokerface, Monster, So Happy I Could Die, Alejandro, Telephone, and many more. Not only was it great to finally get to see Lady Gaga live, but it was also nice to have a night with two of my favorite people, Geof and my mom!

I wanted to go see her in concert when she was here in KC a few weeks back but the show sold out in like 5 minutes! Looks like you had a great time....you looked fantastic, as did your mom! I think it's awesome that she's a fan!

You and your mom look so much alike. And she looks fantastic. If my mom were still around she would have loved Lady Gaga. She'd get a kick out of her outfits.
