Lady Gaga Debuts Official Born This Way Ball Tour Poster (PHOTO)

Nicole Sia / February 7, 2012

Christmas has come two months late (or 10 months early) for Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters, as the social-networking pop star took to Twitter again tonight (Feb. 7) to leak details about her 2012-2013 tour, The Born This Way Ball. This time around, the 2012 Grammy performer shared the tour’s official poster, a bit of “homework” she says she finished early and felt compelled to leak after “too much wine.”

The moody black-and-white design features Mother Monster’s large, godlike visage peering out from ominous clouds above a medieval castle in the same architectural style as The Born This Way Ball’s stage design sketch.

Four men stand with Gaga in the foreground of the structure, while another man peers out from a tower window. Below the group appears the tour’s official name in large block letters, superimposed over an electric purple inverted pyramid.

We think the poster evokes characters from The Rocky Horror Picture Show, specifically the pale-faced, fair-haired alien manservant Riff Raff, and the costuming from the “Time Warp” musical number.

The “Marry The Night” singer also tweeted that The Born This Way Ball official tour dates will be announced tomorrow (Feb. 8) at 11 a.m. PST.

Now that you’ve seen the stage design and tour poster, how do you think The Born This Way Ball is shaping up compared to Gaga’s Monster Ball? Tell us in the comments below, or on Twitter and Facebook.
