Lady Gaga has added an extra date to the UK leg of her Born This Way Ball world tour.

The singer will now play a second gig at Twickenham Stadium on Sunday 9 September.

Her first set of shows at Twickenham on 8 September and Manchester Arena on 11 September sold out in minutes.

Tickets for the new London performance will go on sale at 9am on Friday 20 April.

The Born This Way Ball begins in Seoul, South Korea, on 27 April, before the singer starts her European concerts in Sofia, Bulgaria, on 14 August.

In a statement she described the production as "spectacular".

Lady Gaga released her most recent album Born This Way in 2011.

She has now sold more than 15 million albums around the world.

The Poker Face star recently thanked fans on Twitter for their response to her tour.

"I cried this morning when I heard the UK numbers, I can't believe it," she said.

It's been announced that reformed rockers The Darkness will support Gaga for the European gigs.

Lead singer Justin Hawkins told Newsbeat: "I don't expect it to be plain sailing, but it never is. It's not supposed to be.

"I'm surprised that we're considered heavy enough for it.

"I think she likes a lot of stuff that's more extreme than what we do. Obviously, I'm delighted.

"I have no expectations - we're going to turn up and enjoy it."
