"He waited 7 days switching off friends so he could go to school," Gaga tweeted of the male fan, who took turns with hisfriends to queue for a ticket for a week.

Gaga electrified more than 10,000 fans with hit songs including "Bad Romance," "Poker Face" and "Born This Way,"as well as hot dance routines.

She kicked off the gig at 7:30 p.m. with "Highway Unicorn,"entering astride a "horse" carried by two male dancers onto a Gothic-style stage beaming purple rays of light.

The costume chameleon made a dozen costume changes, shifting from a copy of her infamous "meat dress" and a military outfit to a skirt based on an origami paper crane and a headdressfeaturing the Statue of Liberty.

The concert hit a climax with "Hair," when Lady Gaga rode a big bike sporting a Republic of China flag, to the cheers of fans.

She then tied the flag, along with a "gay pride" rainbow flagto the bike, and shouted pro-gay rights slogans, urging people totake pride in who they are, regardless of their sexual orientation.

She sang a total of 23 songs before rounding off the two-hour show with "The Edge of Glory" and "Marry the Night" as encores.
