Lady Gaga Postpones Shows Due to Joint Inflammation
Published Feb 12, 2013Bad news, Little Monsters — on doctor's orders, Lady Gaga has had to postpone a few shows on her North American tour, including a Canadian stop in Hamilton, ON.
Gaga is reportedly suffering from synovitis, which is a severe inflammation of the joints. This has led her to put off four shows on the the "Born This Way Ball Tour": February 13 and 14 in Chicago, February 16 in Detroit, and February 17 in Hamilton.
The mega-famous pop singer said in a statement, "I am completely devastated and heartsick. I've been hiding this injury and pain from my staff for a month, praying it would heal, but after last night's performance I could not walk. To the fans in Chicago, Detroit and Hamilton, I hope you can forgive me as it is nearly impossible for me to forgive myself right now. I would do anything for you. I will hopefully heal as soon as possible and be at 500% again, which is what you deserve."
She's still got a month of shows to complete after these cancelled dates. See the revised schedule below, and read our review of last month's Vancouver show here.
