Indonesia's ‘Little Monsters’ Snap Up Lady Gaga Tickets

More than 25,000 tickets to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way Ball” tour were sold on Saturday in less than two hours at the fX Lifestyle Center in South Jakarta.
Even before tickets went on sale at 10 a.m., a long line of fans, some of them dressed in outrageous Lady Gaga-style outfits, was seen outside the establishment before dawn.

On Saturday afternoon, the concert’s promoter Big Daddy announced on its Web site that 50 percent of the tickets were already sold. The concert, scheduled for June 3, will take place at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, which can accommodate 40,000 people. In addition to fX, the tickets were also sold in Surabaya and Bandung on Saturday.

 

High school student Inigo Abigail said she spent the night at the mall with her mother.  “We got here at 10 p.m. I barely slept,” the 17-year-old said, adding she managed to rest her eyes for about two hours.


But she managed to secured eight tickets for her cousins and aunts.  

“Each person is only allowed to buy four tickets max, that’s why I brought my mother along,” said the “little monster,” an affectionate name for Gaga fans.

She said she has every record that Mother Monster has released and a lot of other Lady Gaga-related merchandise.

Speaking in a press conference on Thursday, Big Daddy President Director Michael Rusli said the show was set to be the biggest concert it would host this year. Unlike Gaga’s indoor concerts in Singapore and Hong Kong, fans can expect a stadium show in Jakarta. 

There are five different ticket classes for Lady Gaga’s concert in Jakarta. The gold circle tickets cost Rp 2,250,000 ($250) and offer  a specially designated spot right in front of the stage. Festival and Tribune 1 tickets both cost Rp 750,000 and Tribune 2 tickets are priced at Rp 465,000. Tribune 3 tickets are for women and children age ten and under, and cost Rp 1,250,000. 

Gaga’s concert will start at 7 p.m. The stadium will open at 5 p.m.

The singer of “Poker Face” and “Bad Romance” will fly to Jakarta with 140 crew members, 39 containers and nine private jets. As a comparison, Michael said that Linkin Park, which attracted 20,000 people last year, only took two private jets and two containers.  

“The Jakarta concert is going to be bigger than Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong, so we expect international visitors for Gaga in Jakarta,” he said.

On Saturday, Big Daddy also gave away one golden ticket to the best dressed ticket buyer and everyone dressed in their best Lady Gaga-inspired costume was allowed on to the priority line.

University student Ravi Agustina, who was dressed in an elaborate costume of a black mask and black dress that was covered in silver nail-like decorations, didn’t win the contest, but she was happy to be able to stand in the special queue. 

She added that she spent the entire night before at home, placing beads on the back of a Lady Gaga T-shirt to read “Monster.”
