Lady Gaga will be bringing her artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball tour show to Dubai later this year but it has been revealed that the concert will be censored with the pop star forced to tone down her antics to respect the culture.
The 'Do What U Want' singer is currently in the midst of the North American leg of the tour which started on May 4 but she'll be heading over to the United Arab Emirates on September 10 for a “special” show in Dubai which will her first time performing in the country.

However, it seems the bum-baring shell bikini and x-rated gyrating will have to be left at home as Gaga will reportedly tone down her antics to respect the “cultural sensitivities.”
According to Gulf News, chairman and CEO of AMI Live Marcos Rios, said: “There will be some edits for Dubai. It cannot be the full show, because it wouldn’t be allowed. So it’s a special show for Dubai and for the culture.”
He continued: “She’s a wonderful, ground-breaking artist and that’s why we all love her. She’s very, very excited to be playing for her fans for the first time in the Middle East, and that’s really, always for her, the absolute most important thing.
“We’re working very closely with her and her team to ensure all cultural sensitivities are managed very well. It’s her first time here, and she knows she has a lot of Little Monsters here — and some Big Monsters, as well, actually — so that’s the focus for her.”
Rios also hinted that Gaga, 28, will be hosting a meet and greet for her excited fans, adding: “There’s a few meet-and-greets — there will be a very nice meet-and-greet. Gaga is not an artist who likes to meet-and-greet, but I think so, we might [have one].”
It was announced this week that the 'Applause' singer has added four extra dates to the UK leg of the tour which will head over in October. The jaunt continues tonight with an epic show at New York City's Madison Square Garden.
