Lady Gaga may have recycled some material from her previous club tour at her sold-out arena show at US Airways Center Saturday night. She used some of the same imagery and even in-between-song banter as she did at her previous smaller shows. And the sound quality may have been horrible, but for most fans in Arizona, her Valley stop was the first time they'd seen Lady G in concert, and for most, it was an experience not to be missed.
That meant peeps everywhere in the audience dressed like the eccentric star, or just pulled anything out of their closets that you normally wouldn't wear.
Besides giving her little monsters 2 hours of music, Gaga also spoke out against immigration law SB 1070 and stood up for gay rights, mixing in her personal views with the tunes. And the fans seemed to agree with what she said, cheering insanely amidst breaking it down at one of the biggest dance parties of the summer. Here is a sampling of what attendees thought of the concert, all in 140 characters or less. (And read our review here.)
