Tickets aren't any cheaper, but for a big pop star's show, they're still reasonably priced. Regular-people tickets range from $23 to $63, although at the lowest tier, at this point all that's left is, again, that dreaded side-view. For the truly obsessed, there are still plenty of "Hot Seat" ticket packages for $240 -- premium reserved seats and some other goodies -- but the "Meet and Greet" tickets are already all gone, sorry.
And to think, just a few months ago, she was playing Revolution. (Click here to check out our slideshow from that gig.)
The other piece of local-interest news related to this show is Gaga's choice of opener, Jason DeRulo, who she's upgraded to the opening slot for the entire tour.

The 20-year-old DeRulo is a Broward native who attended Dillard High. While a student there, while working on a solo singing career, he began songwriting, selling tunes to pop stars like Cassie, Keyshia Cole, and even Pitbull. (For the latter, he penned and guested on "My Life," off the album The Boatlift).
If you listen to pop radio, though, what you know DeRulo for currently is his song "Watcha Say," which seems to play on Power 96 and Y100 approximately every 10 minutes.The song's built on a sped-up, bittersweet sample of Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek." The original song is slightly creepy, and DeRulo's song uses it in a clever, melancholy way to lace a song about break-up regrets. Here's DeRulo's single, and Imogen Heap's, below. The sampled part comes at about 2:54 in her video.
