Lady Gaga splashes into Lake Tahoe

Lady Gaga is on her way to Lake Tahoe.

Some tickets remain on sale for Saturday’s show at the Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys.

“Lady Gaga’s Art Rave: The ARTPOP Ball Tour” will come at a price not seen here since Elton John came to the lake. Gaga goes for $89.50 to $225.

While the priciest tickets might be found online at Ticketmaster.com and APEConcerts.com, a better bargain might be at 1 p.m. Saturday at the arena’s outdoor box office.

Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, who goes by Lady Gaga, joins an elite coterie of celebrities who have appeared at the lake, including Elvis Presley, Muhammad Ali and President Bill Clinton. Presley sang and Ali boxed at the Sahara Tahoe, which will soon be the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Its parking lot is next door to the Harveys venue. People can park there  and listen to the summertime concerts, usually at a cost of $20 per vehicle. However, there is no view of the stage.

Lady Gaga has five Grammy Awards and 4 million Twitter followers.

“Lady Gaga is one of the most significant contemporary pop artists touring today,” Harrah’s and Harveys Director of Entertainment John Packer told Tahoe Onstage. “She generates a lot of interest everywhere she appears. She makes quite a splash combining art and pop. She is one of a kind and we are glad to have her. She adds a lot of variety to our lineup. It should be a lot of fun.”

After Lake Tahoe, “The ARTPOP Ball Tour” will visit Asia, Australia and Europe.

Lady Gaga, 28, made a splash at South-by-Southwest when she was puked upon by artist Millie Brown in the name of art. Protesters say the scene glamorized bulimia.

Her album “Born This Way” sold more than a million copies in a week in 2011, and “The Fame” sold more than 10 million digital singles in 2008. She also appeared at the 2011 Grammy Awards in a giant egg and wore 50 pounds of raw meat at the 2010 Video Music Awards.

This summer’s concert series included the biggest names since Harrah’s Lake Tahoe and Harveys merged in 2002. Aerosmith with Slash play at Tahoe on Friday, Aug. 8. Bruno Mars plays Aug. 14 and the Eagles will be here for Aug. 29-30 shows.

Bruno Mars is a “virtual sellout,” Packer said, meaning a handful of tickets might be available at the box office at 1 p.m. the day of the show. Those would be unpurchased from artists’ fan clubs. Tickets remain on sale for all the other shows, including Sammy Hagar Aug. 16 and Rascal Faltts and Sheryl Crow Aug. 24.
