Lady Gaga's opening act will "wear a potato catsuit" should the songstress dare to don meat again.

The Grammy Award winner revealed the first 21 dates of The Born This Way Ball today on her Twitter page earlier this week. British rock band The Darkness is the guest for her European concerts.

Should Gaga's costumes resemble the infamous dress made of raw beef she wore to the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, The Darkness will happily match her outlandishness.

"If she's wearing a meat dress, I'll wear a potato catsuit," lead singer Justin Hawkins told UK newspaper The Mirror.

"One of the other band members can wear gravy cut-off shorts or something."

Justin is incredibly excited to be working with Gaga.

"Her booking agent asked her if she wanted The Darkness and she said, 'Yes'," Justin explained. "We both worked on the Adam Lambert album, but didn't meet. It's a great privilege. She's the best pop star of this millennium."

The global tour, produced by Live Nation, begins on April 27 in Seoul before making its way to Europe.

The first show of the European leg of her global tour kicks off on August 14 in Sofia, Bulgaria.
