Sydney’s Town Hall became the Monster Hall when Lady Gaga invaded the building with her eccentric cornucopia of stage accessories. “I broke here in Australia before anywhere else in the world, so let’s celebrate!” the honorary Australian citizen said as she thrilled all her little monsters Down Under with a one-night-only stage show. And throwing more sardines on the fire of a mermaid-featuring “You & I” video, Gaga sported a black leather tail while singing the song from a wheelchair. (Did she get hurt from a planking accident? We hear all the pop star mer-people are jumping on that trend.) Highlights from the show below.
