Lady Gaga's Monster Ball Tour -- a concert that probably generated more buzz that any other in Phoenix this year -- will come back through town on March 26, 2011. The show will again be at US Airways Center.
Tickets go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. here.
Gaga's July show sold out well in advance prompting huge markups from online scalpers so you should probably buy early. Gaga will have played over 1,000 shows in the past three years by that time, which means her stage show will be well-oiled, even if she's not totally fresh. Gaga seemed a little hoarse last time, and that was immediately after a well publicized mini-vacation.
