Oh yes.  It is happening.  So polish your metal shoulderpads and don your ridiculously impracticable glasses.  The first round of dates was just announced, but we're sure there will be more shows added as these sell out.  We will now shamelessly cut and paste from the press-release:

....International pop superstar Lady Gaga today announced plans for her next North American tour, entitled "The Monster Ball." The tour will begin on November 27 in Montreal, and will wind up on January 21, 2010 in Gaga's hometown, New York City. Kid Cudi will be the supporting act for the entire tour....
