Last night Lady Gaga twatted a picture on her Twitter of her and, the band, Semi Precious Weapons at Bukowski’s in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Lady Gaga is taking her Monster Ball Tour to the TD Garden in Boston on July 1st and July 2nd. Semi Precious Weapons is a band that became the opening act for Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball Tour after Kanye West pulled out (due to his Taylor Swift incident at the 2009 MTV Music Awards) and Kid Cudi got kicked off the tour after he punched a fan.
I was fortunate enough to attend the Monster Ball on December 31st, 2009 and even though Semi Precious Weapons is in different musical genres than Kanye and Kid Cudi, I enjoyed their music. I would classify them as a pop/punk rock band. SPW met the Lady in NYC and knew her before she was THE Lady Gaga. They also make a cameo in Gaga’s “Telephone” music video.
Here are some pictures from when I went to the Monster Ball. I was only three rows away from the stage!
The Monster Ball concert was a perfect end to my 2009. Lady Gaga performed all the songs that she had on her albums at the time and it was an electrifying experience. I can’ t wait to see her again at the Monster Ball in 2011.
