Lady Gaga has cancelled the remainder of the North American leg of her Born This Way Ball tour due to an injury. The singer originally cancelled four shows, revealing that she has been hiding the injury from her staff and was hoping the pain would eventually subside. However, she now requires surgery and will be unable to perform for an extended period of time.
“After additional tests this morning to review the severity of the issue, it has been determined that Lady Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip,” Live Nation said in a statement. “She will need surgery to repair the problem, followed by strict down time to recover. This unfortunately, will force her to cancel the tour so she can heal.”
Gaga took to her Twitter page earlier this week to reveal just how much pain she has been in.
“I’ve been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for sometime now,over the past month it has worsened,” Gaga tweeted yesterday. “I’ve been praying it would heal. I hid it from my staff, I didn’t want to disappoint my amazing fans. However after last night’s performance I could not walk and still can’t.”
She later added, “It will hopefully heal as soon as possible, I hate this. I hate this so much. I love you and I’m sorry.”
