Lady Gaga brings Monster Ball Tour to Raleigh, Charlotte

Hot on the heels of her "Telephone" video release, Lady Gaga has announced the North American leg of her 2010 Monster Ball tour, including stops in both Raleigh and Charlotte.

Lady Gaga will play Raleigh's RBC Center on Sunday, September 19, and Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena on Saturday, September 18. Tickets will go on sale in select markets on March 19, but no official word on Raleigh or Charlotte ticket sales just yet. Virgin Mobile and Citi customers will have access to ticket presales tomorrow, March 16, at 10 a.m.

[UPDATE: Tickets for the RBC Center show go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 9 here for $49.50, $85 or $175. Charlotte tickets will go on sale here at the same time for $51.50, $87 or $177.]

Depending on your opinion on Lady Gaga, whose fame has skyrocketed this past year, this news will either be met with a shrug of indifference or an all out joygasm. Gaga loyalists, whom the artist refers to has her little monsters, treat concerts the same was a Star Wars geek would a convention. That is to say, the costumes and garish makeup won't be limited to the stage.

Lady Gaga's latest video, a nine minute Tarantino-inspired collaboration with Beyonce, is after the jump, as well as a complete list of tour dates.

Do you have any idea around how much the cheapest tickets will be for the RBC center? I can't seem to find prices online for the North American dates.
