Based on our best guesstimates, we think that Gaga will take to the stage around 9:10 p.m. This is based on the stage time for her previous shows on this tour.

However, we advise that you're in seats earlier. External factors can put an artist on stage earlier than anticipated (if there's inclement weather or anything). Plus, at a crowded stadium show, there are sure to be delays as you enter the complex. So give yourself PLENTY of time.

Having said that, if you're like me, you want to be prepared for a concert. We've got a look at the expected setlist and more here.
