Pop superstar, Lady Gaga is internationally loved for her catchy pop tunes and engaging stage presence. However she is also known to bring forth a sexual and mature side to the stage, which has the authorities in Seol, South Korea putting restrictions on the attendees.  Initially, they had decided that anyone under the age of 12 years old would be forbidden from attending the concert, however, they have now made the decision to ban anyone under the age of 18 from attending.

Gaga performs in Seoul on April 27, and the news was announced on Thursday, March 29. All teens under the age of 18 who have purchased their tickets will be refunded. According to reports, 38,000 tickets were sold and only 1% of those tickets sold were to people under the age of 18.

The concert will take place at the Seol Olympic Stadium and is the kick off destination on Lady Gaga’s world tour. The tour promotes her latest album Born This Way, and the name of the tour is The Born This Way Ball. Gaga will be on tour performing 110 shows around the world.  Earlier in the year, she revealed the design of the stage which includes a “Monster Pit” where fans will have the opportunity to meet her.

She begins the tour in Asia and will then make her way to Australia. By August of this year she will be touring in Europe and towards the end of the year she will be in Latin America. The songstress will then make her way to North America in January of 2013 which will continue until March. This will be her first trip to Southeast Asia and Latin America.   Her last tour, The Monster Ball Tour, made over $125 million in gross sales. Hopefully this upcoming tour will bring her continuing success!
