While I love listening to music, I haven’t been much of a concertgoer. When I received an email from Skype inviting me to attend Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Ball at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, my heart nearly skipped a beat. My blood pressure certainly rose as I was that excited. I notified the seester right away about the show, and we got to scheming our outfits!
On the day of the concert, I took off an hour early from work to make sure we’d get to San Jose on time, even in commuter traffic. We were dressed from head to toe for the occasion and added the final touches by getting our makeup done at the local radio station’s booth.
Before Lady Gaga’s performance, we got to hang out with fellow bloggers (Hi Chelsea and Mallory!) at the VIP Skype Hospitality Party where we enjoyed light bites, drinks, Skype cupcakes, a make-up station and goodie bags!
When it was time for the show, we shuffled down from the party to our seats. Skype really hooked it up! We had an incredible view of the stage, and the crowd’s energy was contagious.
And thankfully Lady Gaga encouraged plenty of photos and stood still enough for my Nokia Lumia 920′s low light settings. Not too shabby, right?
The opportunity to see Lady Gaga live was incredible. She gave a fantastic performance and amazed with stage design, theatrics, and costumes. I don’t think I’ll ever forget seeing and dancing to some of my favorite songs performed at such close proximity to Mother Monster!
Disclosure: Complimentary tickets to Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Ball Tour were provided by Skype. I was not asked to write about the show, but how can I not talk about this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity (even months later)? All Lady Gaga-lovin’ opinions are my own, and I received no compensation for this post.
