On November 3 Costa Ricans will take part in the Lady Gaga “The Born This Way Ball” concert tour being held at the Estadio Nacional (National Stadium) in La Sabana park.
The fan club, “Club de Fas en Costa Rica de Lady Gaga” posted on their Facebook page that Costa Rica WILL have the Monster Pit.
Originally the Monster Pit was not part of the show. However, on Monday a official statement by RPMTV, the promoter of the concert, said that the Pit would be in our country.
The Monster Pit is part of the design that has been used in most countries in Europer, Asia and Oceania.
On February 6, 2012, Gaga tweeted that the central area within the stage will be known as “The Monster Pit”, which is regulated to general admission fans who were the first to arrive. Every night, the Haus of Gaga will also choose fans from the Monster Pit to come backstage and meet Gaga. On Lady Gaga’s official website, the rules of eligibility for the Monster Pit are described in more detail.
According to “Gagapedia”, here are the Monster Pit eligibility details:
– Due to venue capacity issues, only those with GA floor tickets will be eligible to earn Monster Pit access.
– For safety & security reasons, fans won’t be permitted to line up at the venue before 8am local time the day of the show; those with GA floor tickets can line up in the Monster Pit eligibility line. The afternoon of each show, Monster Pit access wristbands will be distributed to GA floor ticket holders who have arrived first, waited the longest, and are dressed to “Ball.”
– The first person in line for the Monster Pit will receive a key.
– A very limited amount of Monster Pit passes will be held and distributed at random each night for those who do NOT have GA floor tickets; these will be awarded to fans who arrived first, waited longest, + dressed to “Ball” but who do not have GA floor tickets.
Monster Pit key
The first person in line for the Monster Pit is awarded a key, which symbolically opens the Monster Pit for each date. They are called the “Holders of the Monster Pit key”. After each show, Gaga’s team uploads a picture with the holder on LittleMonsters.com, who are all meant to sign them on their respective keys. On dates with venues that are to small for the Monster Pit, the first person on the General Admissions line is awarded the key.
The Born This Way Ball Tour is the third concert tour by Lady Gaga to promote Born This Way. Gaga first announced the tour on February 19, 2011 during the first night of the third version of The Monster Ball Tour. Gaga stated that she originally intended to start the tour at the end of 2011. Gaga also stated during an interview with Fuse, that she wanted The Born This Way Ball Tour to be more like a continuation of The Monster Ball Tour; however, the continuation concept was not used.
