Lady Gaga is known for her outrageous, experimental fashion sense which involves dressing up as Kermit the Frog or donning a red lace mini dress with matching face mask.

Now Gaga's local fans are going to get a chance to see her step out in her scariest outfits yet.

For the queen of electro pop is to bring her Monster Ball Tour to Belfast next year — and is drawing inspiration from the title of the live shows for her colourful costumes.

The New York born pop star is to make her debut headline appearance at the Odyssey Arena on February 22 2010 — just a year after she supported the Pussycat Dolls at the King's Hall. And she told Rolling Stone magazine that the UK and Ireland tour will allow her to be weirder and wackier than before.

“The theme of monsters is certainly going to be an influence as well as the themes of evolution and change,” she said.

Tickets to see Lady Gaga in Belfast go on sale on Friday, October 30, priced £30.
