Lady Gaga cancels tour due to fibromyalgia pain
One of the most vocal when it comes to the rights of the LGBT community Lady Gaga has just cancelled ten concerts to be held in Europe due to unbareable pain associated with her fibromyalgia.
This is not the first time the world renound singer has had to modify her touring schedule because of her pain, as back in September she was forced to postpone shows in Europe after being hospitalized in Brazil due to her medical condition.
She was scheduled to play two concerts in London this week, as well as upcoming shows in; Manchester, Zurich, Cologne, Copenhagen, Berlin and two shows in Paris.
A statement released by Live Nation says she is “suffering from severe pain that has materially impacted her ability to perform live.”
Gaga apologizes to fans
Taking to Twitter, Lady Gaga apologized to her fans for her decision to cancel her remaining European shows: “I’m so devastated I don’t know how to describe it,” Lady Gaga wrote. “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.”
“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.”
Live Nation have stated that people can request refunds as of February 6th.
