Lady Gaga's Monster Ball Returns to North America in 2010—will King Kong show up?

Maybe it's because Lady Gaga ate the stage hard when she tripped and fell multiple times during a Montreal performance back in November 2009 that she decided to extend her Monster Ball tour, announcing 31 new North American tour dates for 2010 as a "redo." This second leg of the tour is set to start in Montreal on June 28 and wrap up in Raleigh, North Carolina on September 19.
Lady Gaga promises to deliver another innovative and creative spectacle, "even more eye-popping" than what fans experienced during the first leg of the Monster Ball tour, which she described as "the first-ever pop-electro opera".
If her new performance is going to be as theatrical as her new video for "Telephone", I might shell out $100 or however many bucks it would take to see the show, but I would be more willing to drop my Benjamin's down on the sheer hope that Beyonce shows up to outshine Gaga.
In a February interview with KIIS-FM's Ryan Seacrest, Gaga anticipated for her 2010 performances to be "more of a musical and less of a concert," with a story along the lines of her friends getting lost in New York on their way to the 'Monster Ball'. With 'New York' and 'monster' in the same sentence, the only thing that resonates with me is King Kong. Can we expect King Kong to have a cameo in Lady Gaga's Monster Ball Pt. 2 Tour?
I wouldn't actually be surprised if the performance starred Lady Gaga as a sparkly, gem-encrusted, skanky gorilla terrorizing her back-up dancer friends.
