Though she tweeted "It feels so good to (be) on stage. I cried w happiness I'm back where I belong. My home. With u. #LittleMonsters" after returning to the road on Nov. 3 in Montreal, Gaga didn't mention the hiatus or health concerns at all on Tuesday. Instead she stuck to the tightly scripted and choreographed show, navigating the four stages spanning the length of the arena and working through the ensemble dance numbers -- particularly on the main stage, which rose and tilted for visually dynamic but physically challenging routines for Gaga and her nine dancers. The show had its usual moments of intimacy, including a solo piano rendition of "The Edge Of Glory," "Angel Down," "Joanne" and the emotive show-closer "Million Reasons," but the night was dominated by pyrotechnics, lasers, prepared videos and other visual stunts -- including stage-to-stage ramps doubling as video screens that lowered from three cloud-like pods near the arena ceiling.
