KiD CuDi recently talked about his initial resistance to team up with Lady Gaga for her "Mosters Ball" tour, explaining teaming up with the singer would help him grab a wide range of new fans. CuDi says that time away from his family was a huge problem and almost made him decline joining the show. "It was a couple of weeks ago, actually," Cudi said about joining. "I got the call, and at first I just had to see if it was going to fit. I wanted to take a lot of time off for my family, just kind of hang with them. It worked out in a timely fashion, I'll still be able to put in the family time after the tour, I got a lot of time off after that. So it's good thing, and it will make more people aware of my album. I know I'll get a lot of new fans just off touring with her." [KiD CuDi – Talks About Joining Lady Gaga's Tour – Watch Here]
The North American tour kicked off last week, in Canada. Described as "the first ever pop electro opera" the tour kicked off on November 27th in Montreal and will hit sixteen cities before ending with a two-night stand (on January 20th and 21st) at New Yorks Radio City Music Hall. "A message to all my little monsters: 'The Fame Monster' will come out four days before the first live show," said Gaga in a statement. "You have exactly 96 hours to learn all of the lyrics so you can sing along. Dress accordingly." Rapper Kid Cudi — a protege of Kanye West who recently released his debut album, "Man on the Moon: The End of Day" — will open for Gaga on "The Monster Ball" tour.
