Lady Gaga Postpones Europe Leg of "Joanne Tour" Due To Health Problems

The expected happened. Lady Gaga has decided to postpone her European leg of her “Joanne World Tour”. Mother Monster broke the news a few minutes ago via simultaneous posts on her official social media accounts this Monday, September 18.

She wrote:

“I have always been honest about my physical and mental health struggles. Searching for years to get to the bottom of them. It is complicated and difficult to explain, and we are trying to figure it out. As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness, but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference. I use the word "suffer" not for pity, or attention, and have been disappointed to see people online suggest that I'm being dramatic, making this up, or playing the victim to get out of touring. If you knew me, you would know this couldn't be further from the truth. I'm a fighter. I use the word suffer not only because trauma and chronic pain have changed my life, but because they are keeping me from living a normal life. They are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: performing for my fans. I am looking forward to touring again soon, but I have to be with my doctors right now so I can be strong and perform for you all for the next 60 years or more. I love you so much.”

Lady Gaga has been experiencing severe fibromyalgia pains for the last few weeks and last week she was forced to cancel her concert at Rock in Rio in Brazil. European fans were worried Lady Gaga would also cancel the first shows of the European leg of the “Joanne World Tour” too since the first dates were scheduled for late September and in the end their worst fears were proved right – but in a even worse manner. Not only the first dates have been affected, it’s the entire European leg. Although the leg hasn’t officially been canceled but it will be “rescheduled for early 2018”. Lady Gaga and Live Nation are incredibly sorry. The second North American leg of the tour is still a go, though.
