Lady Gaga Tour Sparks Protests In Korea

Lady Gaga's planned 'Born This Way Ball' shows are facing a wave of protest from conservative campaigners in South Korea.

The singer is due to kick off her tour in Seoul on Friday (April 27) and officials there recently banned under-18s from attending the show after deeming it unsuitable for younger audiences.

A Christian group called the Alliance for Sound Culture In Sexuality have held a number of prayer meetings to rally against the singer.

Members of the group have also placed posters around the city accusing Gaga of "spreading unhealthy sexual culture" through "lewd lyrics and performances.''

The banners have since been removed by city officials.

The organiser of the protest, Kang Ju-Hyun says, "We will pray to God that the concert will not be realised so that homosexuality and pornography will not spread around the country."

He also revealed his group will hold protests outside the headquarters of Hyundai Card, the concert organiser, in the run up to the gig.

Gaga has promised that it will be the best gig she has ever performed. "I will perform the tour of your life if it f**king kills me (sic)" she tweeted.

Are you going gaga for Gaga? Will you be catching her on stage?
