Lady Gaga has canceled the final Joanne tour dates due to “severe pain.”
The singer-songwriter’s reps took to social media Saturday morning to announce that all 10 of the remaining concert dates have been canceled.
31-year-old Gaga has been struggling with chronic pain due to fibromyalgia, which has caused her to postpone her tour last year.
The statement reads, “Unfortunately, Lady Gaga is suffering from severe pain that has materially impacted her ability to perform live. As a result, Live Nation and Lady Gaga are announcing the cancellation of the final 10 dates of the European leg of her Joanne World Tour,” the statement read. “Last night, with strong support from her medical team, Lady Gaga made the tough decision to immediately come off the road. 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 years to come.”
Gaga added a personal note to fans on her official Twitter account saying that she is beyond “devastated.” adding that, “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 love this show more than anything, and I love you, but this is beyond my control.”
In her recent documentary, Gaga: Five Foot Two, Gaga opened up about her struggles with chronic pain saying, “There is an element and a very strong piece of me that believes pain is a microphone. I hope that people watching it that do struggle with chronic pain know that they are not alone.”
Fans with tickets for the remaining 10 tour dates can obtain refunds beginning Tuesday.
