Lady Gaga to return to South Korea after censored 2012 concert

LADY GAGA is set to return to South Korea two years after censors banned young fans from attending her Born This Way Ball concert in Seoul.

In 2012, the Applause hitmaker brought her tour to the city's Olympic Stadium, but after protests from religious groups, authorities at South Korea's media rating board decided the concert would be harmful to young people and prohibited anyone under the age of 18 from attending.

Two years on, Gaga is slated to play in Seoul once again, headlining the second day of the AIA Real Life: Now Festival this summer (15-16Aug14).

A spokeswoman for the media rating board tells Agence France-Presse that it is "too early" to say whether similar restrictions will be placed on the singer's upcoming appearance.

Gaga, who recently announced that K-Pop girl group Crayon Pop will serve as the opening act for her upcoming ArtRave: The Artpop Ball tour, will join the likes of Gangnam Style hitmaker Psy and K-Pop heavyweights BIGBANG, 2NE1 and WINNER on the music festival bill.
