Lady Gaga - Opening Night Of Lady Gaga's World Tour In South Korea Given An '18' Rating Following Protests


Whilst Lady Gaga 's risqué antics might be well familiar to those in the western hemisphere, across in the Far East the controversial artist's shenanigans evidently haven't been quite as accepted, and as such the 'Poker Face' singer found herself kicking off her extraordinary world tour with a show in the South Korean capital of Seoul that only those over 18 could attend.

Gaga's tour is going to be behemothic even by pop superstar standards. Her first "run" will take in 60 shows throughout Asia and Australasia before hitting Europe through the rest of summer and into the Autumn. After those shows she'll then head to Latin America to see out 2012 before going around North America from January 2013 into March - all done with the aim of setting the highest grossing tour of all time.

However the BBC reports that the tour hasn't got off to the most smooth of starts; as stated the opening night in Seoul was made over 18s only after protests in the city centre about the star being "obscene" and "tainting young people." A group called the Civilians Network meanwhile said her performances were "too homosexual" and "pornographic," and a group of Christians protested outside the venue itself. It has to be said though that South Korea evidently still is Gaga crazy, with 45,000 punters packing out the Olympic Stadium to see her perform hits like 'Judas' and 'Telephone.' She moves onto four nights in Hong Kong next week.
