Christians pray for disaster to hit Lady Gaga’s Seoul concert

Lady Gaga has arrived in Seoul, South Korea ahead of her concert on Friday (27 April). Around 300 Christians gave her the cold shoulder by praying that her concert will be cancelled.

'We will pray to God that the concert will not be realized so that homosexuality and pornography will not spread around the world,' Kang Ju-Hyun, head of the Alliance for Sound Culture in Sexuality, told AFP.

Lady Gaga regularly campaigns for gay rights, including performing at Rome's Pride celebration last year. The age limit for her Seoul concert was raised from 12 to 18 years old at the beginning of this month, a move that was welcomed by Korean Christian groups.

Despite this, the superstar tweeted her about excitement to be in the country, where she is debuting her world tour. 'What a warm and exciting welcome to Korea,' she said. Then on a visit to Seoul's Olympic Stadium where she will be performing on Friday she tweeted a photo and said: 'Imagine when it's full'.

After Seoul, Lady Gaga's Born This Way Tour will visit Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore and Jakarta before hitting New Zealand and Australia.
