Brace yourself, South Africa. Gaga is coming.

Speculation in the country been rife since events company Big Concerts updated its Facebook cover photo last week to an image which looked suspiciously similar to her Born this Way Ball tour poster, but it’s official: Big Concerts broke the news via social media this morning after an announcement on national radio station 5fm.

The tickets for the Grammy-Award winning artist’s shows in Johannesburg (30 November) and Cape Town (3 December) go on sale tomorrow on Computicket. The first stage of ticket sales are online-only: on Tuesday 19 June at 09:00am, fans can buy tickets on Computicket’s website, while later in the week they will be able to purchase them at retail outlets. Full details are available on Computicket’s Facebook app.

South Africans took to Twitter to share their opinions on the announcement, the ticket prices and the support acts, which saw the official #LadyGagaSA hashtag reach the top of the list of trending topics in the country.

As Computickets’ website has not always fared well when tickets to major acts go on sale, some Twitter users voiced their concerns about the wisdom of an online-first approach, while the retailer tried to allay their fears.
