After postponing four of her Born This Way Ball shows on Tuesday night, Lady Gaga has canceled the remainder of her tour dates due to a severe performance injury. A post on LittleMonsters.com states the singer will need surgery for a “labral tear of the right hip.”
Gaga went through additional tests Wednesday morning after making her joint pain public on Twitter following a performance in Montreal.
“I hid it from my staff, I didn’t want to disappoint my amazing fans,” Gaga wrote. “However after last nights performance I could not walk and still can’t.”
Gaga’s Born This Way Ball kicked off January 14 in Tacoma, Washington, along with the debut of the Born Brave Bus . Gaga personally attended a pre-concert tailgate to christen the bus, which was covered in artwork by her Little Monsters, and is part of her Born This Way Foundation’s larger campaign to build a sense of community and promote self-acceptance among her fans, including providing them with access to mental health services, school psychologists, volunteer opportunities and bullying and suicide prevention resources.
She will need “strict down time” to recover after an operation, but fans have been extremely supportive on her social media site, urging the star to put her health before her tour.
“Gaga hope you get well, i am very sad for you, not only more all u.s. fans that you love. You are our life was thank you have no shame that we do. You taught in a face our fears of front and fight them,” Gabriela Guiao wrote.
And on Twitter, the concern was equally as evident. “We love you+want you to be healthy. Sometimes, you need to put yourself first. Your health is always a primary concern. @ladygaga,” @MarcMonster wrote.
