Lady Gaga Cancels Ten European Tour Dates Due To ‘Severe Pain’
Peformances in Manchester and London have been impacted by the decision.
Lady Gaga has cancelled the last ten dates of her Joanne World tour due to “severe pain."
A statement was issued on promoter’s site Live Nation, with Gaga explaining that the situation is completely out of her hands and that she's beyond "devastated" to be disappointing so many fans.
Let's get checking out an update from MTV News...
The cancelled shows cover the final ten dates of her European tour, with next week’s performances in London and Manchester being impacted by the decision.
"Last night, with strong support from her medical team, Lady Gaga made the tough decision to immediately come off the road," the statement read. "She is extremely sorry and deeply saddened that she cannot perform for her European fans, who have waited so patiently.
“She is in the care of expert medical professionals who are working closely with her so she can continue to perform for her fans for years to come."
Lady Gaga has previously opened up about her experience with fibromyalgia, a chronic musculoskeletal disease that causes pain all over the body and leaves its sufferers with bouts of insomnia and fatigue.
The European section of her Joanne world tour had already been rescheduled due to the condition, and Gaga was similarly forced to pull out of a performance at Rock In Rio back in September over the same issue.
Fans are obviously disappointed that they won’t get to see Lady Gaga for the time being, but it sounds like she’s made the best decision for her health by taking a bit of time out to rest up properly.
People with tickets to the shows in question can obtain a full refund on Thursday 6th of February.
