Gaga powers through Aussie gig

Lady Gaga Bang Showbiz

A WIG-whipping, fist-pounding Lady Gaga opened the Australian leg of her world tour with no hint of the bruising injury she suffered days ago.

The inimitable performer's show in Brisbane on Wednesday night saw her storming around a gothic castle stage like a bizarre Barbie doll that broke into He-Man's play set and threw a house party.

The Born This Way Ball tour - Gaga's third - is billed as an "electro-metal pop-opera" and delivers something like that, in the way it defies description.

Gaga is first marched out of her castle on a puppet horse, only to moments later emerge in gold costume from an inflatable zippered womb to perform the anthem Born This Way.

The womb deflates and Gaga struts around the central area of her stage, known as the Monster Pit and reserved for early arriving general admission fans, rocking out Bad Romance, one of several past hits in the show.
