BackgroundEdit

DevelopmentEdit

This serie of concerts were a continuation of the previous tour with the New Kids on the Block musically and in term of style. One of the new inclusion to the tour was a mixed-media cityscape stage backdrop. The Haus asked Ray Woodubyr of RK Diversified to help design the stage which combined a variety of stage effects and various textile. Ray Woodbury picked Sew What? Inc. to fabricate the elaborate the backdrop.

StageEdit

The stage design featured an urban scene complete with images of high rise buildings, sparkling city lights, smoke stacks that emited real smoke, illuminated billboards and video projection. The lower graphic area was direct printed onto Airtex. The cut drop was created by inserting areas of tiger mesh. Hidden smoke lines added live exhaust to the city skyline and a front projection screen build into the graphic brought the printed billboard to life. Over 200 LED lights were hardwired to illuminate "The Fame Machine" sign.The finishing touch being a cut drop treatment revealing a dramatic Atomic Red velvet drape positioned upstage with dramatic lighting.

The same "City" was used on the official website (Ladygaga.com) which was designed by web firm Deep Fried Productions. Visitor had to move through the city in order to reach the different section of the website.

The "City" backdrops was used on all shows including the Oceania dates even if the setlist and outfits were the one used for The Fame Ball.

Crevettes FilmsEdit

On December 30 of 2008, the Haus shot the Andy Warhol inspired "Crevettes Films" directed by Lady Starlight. Three new interludes came out of this collaboration called respectivly The Heart, The Brain, The Face. These short films continued the storyline of Pop started with the Pop Ate My Heart interlude from the previous tour.

The reworked storyline feature Candy Warhol with a mysterious male figure recalling the event that happened to her both in a very robotic monotone. Pop culture is metaphorically called a "beautiful monster" in need of a new face and as a result, found Candy Warhol. Pop then ate her heart and brain which left her to live for The Fame. Learn more
