American pop star Lady Gaga arrived in Auckland this morning, ahead of her two near sold-out nights at the city's Vector Arena over the weekend.

Lady Gaga - whose real name is Stefani Germanotta - has brought the full Monster Ball tour to Auckland for her shows on Saturday and Sunday night.

It is her second trip to New Zealand - she accompanied the Pussycat Dolls down under last year as their supporting act.

"Just arrived in New Zealand, greeted at 7 am by all my beautiful fans, glitter faces + police. Can't wait to perform the show of a lifetime," she tweeted earlier today.

She followed that up by saying: "Listening to The Edge. Catch me if you can kiwis. I'm in a walka. Play telephone?x."

She then made a call to "her favourite pop music station", The Edge, saying she was being chased by fans.

She told breakfast hosts Jay Jay, Dom and Mike she had commissioned three 747 planes to transport her set to New Zealand.

"I put in a little extra money this year for the freight so that all the fans here could see the exact same show that everyone else sees all over the world," she told Edge Radio Station.

"This is not going to be an abridged show; they're going to see the real Monster Ball."
