Lady Gaga recently canceled an appearance at Brazil’s Rock n Rio festival because she was in the hospital dealing with chronic pain, and apparently things are so bad that she’s been forced to cancel more shows.
Gaga just announced that she’s postponing the six-week European leg of her “Joanne World Tour,” which was set to kick off Thursday in Barcelona and conclude on October 28th in Koln, Germany. Fans are encouraged to keep their tickets, with new rescheduled shows to be announced at a later date.
“Lady Gaga is suffering from severe physical pain that has impacted her ability to perform. She remains under the care of expert medical professionals who recommended the postponement earlier today,” read a statement from her team. “Lady Gaga is devastated that she has to wait to perform for her European fans…Lady Gaga sends her love to all her fans across Europe and thanks them for their support and understanding.”
Gaga also took to Instagram to address fans about the cancellation. “(Trauma and chronic pain) are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: performing for my fans,” she writes. “I am looking forward to touring again soon, but I have to be with my doctors right now so I can be strong and perform for you all for the next 60 years or more.”
