Lady Gaga might actually be an underdog at the moment. Just Google "Lady Gaga flop" and see how many commentaries about the "dismal sales" of ARTPOP you can find. (Here's a pretty reasoned argument as to why such talk is overheated.) For the time being, the pop provocateur is still one of the biggest live acts going, and the newly announced artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball dates will show if she's still got another act of live spectacle in her.
Launching in May, the trek will light up stadiums filled with little monsters throughout the U.S. and Canada over 25 dates.

The tour will stop in St. Paul on May 20 at the Xcel Energy Center. It would be quite a coup if Gaga can get R. Kelly to hit the road with her to perform their hit single "Do What U Want" live, but Kells has his own album to think about right now. Here's what they looked like performing the song on Saturday Night Live recently.
