Lady Gaga unveils "Monster Ball" tour dates

By Monica Herrera

NEW YORK (Billboard) - Two weeks after the cancellation of her "Fame Kills" tour with Kanye West, Lady Gaga has announced the details of a solo tour.

Described by Gaga as "the first-ever 'pop electro opera,'" "The Monster Ball" tour kicks off November 27 in Montreal, Canada, and will hit 16 North American cities before ending with a two-night stand January 20-21 at New York's Radio City Music Hall.

The pop singer also revealed that "The Fame Monster," an enhanced re-release of her debut album, will be released November 23. It will feature a second disc with eight new songs, including "Bad Romance," which Gaga premiered at the Alexander McQueen show during Paris Fashion Week.

"A message to all my little monsters: 'The Fame Monster' will come out four days before the first live show," Gaga said in a statement. "You have exactly 96 hours to learn all of the lyrics so you can sing along. Dress accordingly."

Rapper Kid Cudi -- a protege of West who recently released his debut album, "Man on the Moon: The End of Day" -- will open for Gaga on "The Monster Ball" tour.

Gaga first announced her plans to hit the road solo on October 2. The news came a day after her "Fame Kills" tour with West was canceled because, according to Gaga, West would be "taking a break" in light of fallout from the incident at the MTV Video Music Awards in which he grabbed the microphone from Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech.
