Lady Gaga has revealed the stage plan for her forthcoming Born This Way Ball tour, which is schedule to launch later this year and run through 2013. In a tweet posted at midnight last night, the singer showed off a black and white drawing of the stage, which includes a medieval castle in the staging, along with an enclosed runway through the audience which resembles the stage plan for U2's Elevation and Vertigo tours.

According to Gaga, the enclosed area will be called the Monster Pit and will be reserved for fans with general admission tickets who "waited all night" and are "dressed to Ball." "Every night Haus of Gaga will choose fans from the Monster Pit to come back stage and meet me!" Gaga wrote. "These tickets are NOT more expensive."

Gaga has not yet announced dates for the tour, but has been teasing fans on Twitter with tiny bits of information regarding its staging and setlist in recent weeks.

"I had the melody idea for 'Fantasy' and I was listening to the radio and heard 'Genius of Love,' and I hadn't heard it in a long time," Carey said. "It reminded me of growing up and listening to the radio and that feeling the song gave me seemed to go with the melody and basic idea I had for 'Fantasy.' I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
