(Newser) – Have you ever wanted to hang out with an 86-year-old US senator while watching a 24-year-old dance around in bizarrely artsy stripper costumes? Then hurry, because tickets for “Senator Frank R. Lautenberg & Lady Gaga—The Monster Ball Tour” are almost sold out, according to an email sent to the Washington Post

Lautenberg, a New Jersey Democrat, has scored a private luxury suite for the September concert, and seats are for sale for $2,400. Lautenberg isn’t even up for reelection this cycle—he’s just a huge Lady Gaga fan. He and his wife celebrated his most recent birthday at a Gaga show at Radio City Music Hall in New York.
