Lady Gaga cancels final 10 dates of world tour due to ‘severe pain’

Lady Gaga has cancelled the final 10 dates of the European leg of her Joanne World Tour due to suffering from “severe pain”.

The US singer, who previously postponed her European dates in September due to ongoing health problems, said she is “so devastated I don’t know how to describe it” in an apology to fans.

She was due to play at London’s O2 Arena on Sunday, followed by a concert at the Manchester Arena on Tuesday before returning to London next Thursday.

Lady Gaga, 31, wrote on Twitter: “I’m so devastated I don’t know how to describe it. All I know is that if I don’t do this, I am not standing by the words or meaning of my music.

“My medical team is supporting the decision for me to recover at home. We’re cancelling the last 10 shows of my Joanne World Tour.

“I love this show more than anything, and I love you, but this is beyond my control. London, Manchester, Zurich, Koln, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Paris, Berlin. And Rio.

“I promise I will be back in your city, but for now I need to put myself and my well-being first. I love you, forever. CXX Gaga.”

Tour promoter Live Nation said in a statement that Lady Gaga is “suffering from severe pain that has materially impacted her ability to perform live”.

I love you, monsters ❤️

They added: “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.”

Ticket holders have been advised they can obtain a refund at point of purchase from Tuesday.

Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, was forced to pull out of a performance at Rock In Rio in Brazil in September after being taken to hospital while suffering from “severe physical pain”, before postponing her European tour dates.

In November, she resumed the tour in North America and in January played several dates in Europe.
