Due to a hip injury, the final 21 shows of the tour were cancelled and the tour ended with 98 concerts. The tour is Lady Gaga's second longest tour behind the Monster Ball 2.0 which had 166 dates. The Monster Pit on 17 shows was not used because of safety and space issues.

  • 80 shows accross Asia, Oceania, Europe, North and South America, Africa and Europe in 2012.
  • 18 shows in North America accross Canada and United States in 2013. Initiallly, 39 shows were planned.

In the first few weeks, the tour was met with controversy in some religiously strict countries. This lead to the cancellation of the scheduled show on June 3, 2012 at Gelora Bung Karno Stadiumin in Jakarta, Indonesia.
