On Monday night, thousands of Canberrans flocked to AIS Arena for what was promised to be a production of New York proportions, Lady Gaga's Monster Ball.
"The foyer was packed with 15-year-olds wearing too little and 30-somethings who hadn’t been out in a while.
Lady Gaga’s long time friends Semi Precious Weapon were given the challenging task of supporting the iconic artist.
The four piece pulled out all the stops, setting the stage alive with their modern take on dirty glam rock. Their mentality was ‘act like a rock star, get treated like one,’ catching the audience off guard and encouraging their chants for Gaga as a back-beat to their songs.
Lead singer Justin Tranter showed-off his trashy show style, completing a full outfit change on stage, on his back, stripping down to merely a g-string and nude fishnets.
Semi Precious Weapons eventually had Gaga’s fans screaming for them and singing along to songs never before heard in Canberra. Lyrics like their infectious self-titled track, 'I can’t pay my rent but I’m fucking gorgeous' could be heard echoing through the arena.
Tranter announced that the band are long-time friends of Gaga and have performed with her since 2003, earning them instant cred amongst punters." - outincanberra.com.au
"I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve never heard of Semi-Precious Weapons, the opening band for the night. Though apparently they have been performing with Lady Gaga since 2006, and have no aversion to telling parents where they can stick it for bringing their 5 year old children to a concert with explicit language and raunchy costumes." - Tahnee Brahim
"Hours before the doors are due to open, the hallways of the Entertainment Centre are completely packed – skinny, wide-eyed gay boys with lightning strikes drawn across their faces and high school girls jacked up on pink vodka cruisers and psyching up to elbow their way to the front if necessary. The implication is clear – it’s fucking Gaga time. New York punks Semi-Precious Weapons play a brief but bracing opening set, spitting champagne and sneering come-ons" - Rave Magazine
