Meet Lady GaGa ... For The Low Sum Of Only $5K

Lady Gaga is offering select fans The Ultimate Little Monster Experience at artRAVE. VIP tickets and backstage meet-and-greets have become more popular as a method to boost ticket price but this is by far the most extravagant package we've seen.

According to the press release, for the low, low sum of $5,000, the fan experience includes:

  • Backstage meet and greet with the Queen of Pop
  • Group photo opportunity
  • Premium concert ticket with optimal stage viewing
  • Backstage tour of the wardrobe area, stage access, sound booth and more
  • Gourmet dinner including appetizers and drinks, prepared by a local chef
  • $100 Uber gift card to arrive in style

Hopefully GaGa gets a little closer to her fans in their group photos than Avril Lavigne does in her own VIP package.

We suppose that folks can take some solace in the fact that a portion of the proceeds go to benefit GaGa's Born This Way Foundation, which "is dedicated to creating a safe community that helps connect young people with the skills and opportunities they need to build a kinder, braver world."

If this sounds like your kind of thing, her show at the United Center is one of the six locations this package is being offered. How many weeks of your allowance does it take to get to $5,000?
