Johannesburg - Laundromats around both the FNB and Cape Town Stadiums are being equipped to handle Lady Gaga's masses of clothes used during her concerts, reports Die Burger.

Lady Gaga will be performing at the FNB Stadium on Friday evening and then on Monday 3 December at the Cape Town Stadium.

Attie van Wyk, the CEO of Big Concerts said that six or seven vans were needed to transport her costumes from Lanseria Airport on Tuesday evening, and found it rather "astounding".

Changing rooms have also been set up under the stage, so that Gaga can change costumes quickly during her performances. "Her changing room at the stadium looks amazing," Van Wyk said.

Large entourage

Van Wyk said Gaga's entourage consists out of more than 200 people, the largest of any artist that has ever toured South Africa.

Members of her entourage are currently staying in various hotels around Johannesburg.

Van Wyk also said that Lady Gaga has had many requests so far, one of them being that she would like to be taken on a safari-tour.

'Strict security officials'

Hundreds of "Little Monsters" gathered at Lanseria International Airport on Tuesday night to catch a glimpse of their beloved "Mother Monster". They were disappointed however when airport security escorted her out to another entrance.

But, 15 minutes later, she surprised her fans by appearing at another entrance. She signed autographs and blew kisses to her adoring fans.

An airport official at Lanseria who was present at the time when Lady Gaga exited her flight said she was excited to see her fans, but was escorted away by "strict security officials" as soon as she got onto the runway.

This didn't stop Gaga from seeing her fans, and officials claim that she requested to be taken to her fans.
