A few weeks after the “Fame Kills Tour” with pop singer Lady Gaga and Kanye West was unexpectedly cancelled, Gaga stated that the show must go on and announced Kid Cudi to replace West as her opening act.

According to Gaga, the plans to merge pop with hip-hop fell through following alleged creative differences with West and she subsequently announced plans to tour solo. But the Poker Face hitmaker is determined to provide a rap element for her fans and has hired Kid Cudi to accompany her on the North American dates.

She says in a statement;

“Due to diligent work and preparation, The Monster Ball will begin on November 27 in Montreal. The Monster Ball is a multimedia artistic experience in the style of the first-ever ‘pop electro opera.'”
