The first glimpse of The Fame Monster era happened on October 3rd, 2009 during her acoustic rendition of a few lines from the still unheard single at the time, Bad Romance on Saturday Night Live. The first broadcasted performances were at the American Music Awards and on The Jay Leno Show respectively.

Lady Gaga and Kanye West were planned to do the Fame Kills: Starring Lady Gaga and Kanye West tour but following the 2009 VMAs incident, they decided to cancelled it. Lady Gaga took some of her ideas from her then unnamed world tour and the short lived Fame Kills to create the first incarnation of the Monster Ball. This "Theater Version" (or Monster Ball 1.0) became a north american exclusive tour as three weeks into the tour, Gaga revealed her plan with Live Nation to scrap the stage design in order to bring it to arena. The Theater Version came to an end after 36 shows. Thus, leading to the "Arena Version" (or reworked / Monster Ball 2.0) which took place from February 18, 2010 until May 6 of 2011 for a grand total of 202 shows.
