Lady Gagas racy Oz show has parents asking for concert classification

Lady Gagas Australian tour has left many parents chaperoning their kids to ask why the concert did not carry a classification to warn them of the racy routines the singer put on.


Melbourne, Mar 19 : Lady Gaga's Australian tour has left many parents chaperoning their kids to ask why the concert did not carry a classification to warn them of the racy routines the singer put on.

Gaga's Australian tour kicked off this week, using elements of bulimia, binge drinking and expletives as props.

In her Monster Ball show, Gaga takes the audience into a gothic Wizard Of Oz land, where a video of a model making herself vomit onto Gaga is shown on a film loop.

"This is a place where you can be free. A place where all the freaks are outside and I locked the f---ing door," News.com.au quoted Gaga as having said during her show.

Linda Fitzsimmons took her nine-year-old daughter Jessica to the debut show on March 17 and said that she was "shocked and surprised" by it.

"I couldn't believe it. (Jessica) likes her songs and I'm OK with her listening to them. There's no swearing in them and she's too young to understand the hidden meaning," she said.

"But if I tried to take her to an MA 15+ movie someone would stop me at the counter. Why not with concerts?" she asked.

Promoter Michael Coppel said it is almost impossible to classify a concert and the responsibility lies with the parent.

"It's hard to rate a show. What someone might see as risque differs from person to person," he said.

The Classification Review Board said it was not their area to comment on.

A spokesperson for board chief Donald McDonald referred the Daily Telegraph's inquiries to the Attorney General's office, which was unable to respond.

Family First Senator Steve Fielding similarly refused to weigh in on the debate.

Coppel said he doubted that Australian tours would ever carry classifications, because most promoters do not see the show before they book it.
