Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball show in New York’s Madison Square Garden has won a Primetime Emmy Award. The concert special, which aired on HBO earlier this year, took home the Emmy for Outstanding Picture Editing for a Special (editors: Mike Polito, Bill DeRonde, Kevin O’Dea and Katie Hetland).
Dating back to November 2009, the Monster Ball drew 2.5 million fans and grossed over $227 million, becoming the biggest tour by a debut artist and one of the of the highest-grossing tours of all time.
And Gaga is already planning a new tour and will be back on the road next year. “The Monster Ball kind of lives on through the new show,” she said of the upcoming worldwide tour in support of Born This Way. “We just do sort of evolving variations on this theme, sort of beautiful idea of all of the fan getting together, which is what the Monster Ball is all about.”
The 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will take place on Sunday, September 18th at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Lady Gaga is set to attend the award ceremony.
