Lady Gaga cancels concerts in Europe due to ‘severe pain’
Lady Gaga has canceled 10 concerts in Europe because of severe pain, the tour’s promoter said Saturday. Live Nation said the musician is “suffering from severe pain that has materially impacted her ability to perform live.”
In a statement posted on social media, Lady Gaga said she was “devastated” to disappoint her fans. She said her medical team “is supporting the decision for me to recover at home.”
“All I know is that if I don’t do this, I am not standing by the words or meaning of my music,” she said.
The singer had been due to play Sunday and Thursday at London’s O2 Arena as part of her Joanne World Tour. The other canceled concerts were in Manchester; Zurich; Cologne, Germany; Stockholm; Copenhagen, Denmark; Berlin and two shows in Paris.
