“Severe pain” has forced Lady Gaga to cancel 10 shows on the European leg of her “Joanne” concert tour, the singer and her team said on Saturday, several months after she had postponed those performances in Europe due to her ailment.
Lady Gaga, whose hit songs include “Bad Romance” and “Born This Way,” has previously said she suffers from fibromyalgia, a musculoskeletal pain disorder often accompanied by fatigue and cognitive difficulties.
A statement posted on Lady Gaga’s Twitter and Instagram pages did not mention fibromyalgia but said the 31-year-old singer decided to cancel the shows after consulting with her medical team.
“Unfortunately, Lady Gaga is suffering from severe pain that has materially impacted her ability to perform live,” the statement said.
In an accompanying statement on social media, Lady Gaga said she was devastated to cancel the shows, which included stops in London, Zurich, Stockholm, Paris and Berlin.
“I promise I will be back in your city, but for now, I need to put myself and my well-being first,” she said.
