One has to shell out Rs.40,000 for a ticket to attend international pop star Lady Gaga’s performance at the F1 after-party in Greater Noida Sunday and the show is a total sell out, says actor-businessman Arjun Rampal, who is organising the event.
“The maximum capacity for the party is 1,000, and Gaga’s show is completely sold out,” Arjun told IANS.
International DJ Roger Sanchez will perform on day one Friday, Edward Maya on the second day Saturday and Tom Navy on day three Sunday. Gaga will stage the finale.
Gaga, known for numbers like “Poker face” and “Born this way”, is already in town, and excited about her performance.
“I am finally here + what a dream come true. Performing at Formula 1 in INDIA, and my first day here I reached #15millionmonsters,” Gaga had posted on Twitter after reaching there on Thursday.

She continued: “Jamey Rodemeyer, 14 yrs old, took his life because of bullying. Bullying must become be illegal. It is a hate crime.”
Gaga went on to say that she will meet with President Obama in an attempt to put an end to bullying.
“I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it,” she said.
