Lady Gaga Postpones Shows After Developing Joint Problems
Lady Gaga has changed her mind about some big touring dates. The pop singer has spent a considerable amount of time on the road for her Born This Way Ball Tour, but the 26–year-old singer recently did not dance around cancelling a few dates.
In a series of six posts on Twitter, Gaga announced that she has been injured and that she will not be able to keep up with the demands of her stage show for a short time. Apparently, she’s been suffering from synovitis, which the singer describes as “severe inflammation of the joints,” and the singer has had to postpone shows in the great city of Chicago, Illinois, as well as Detroit, Michigan and Hamilton, Ontario. I never thought of the woman as a particularly agile dancer, but in this case, her dance moves seem to have been severely hindered.
The pop singer also notes that she hid the injury until she couldn’t handle it any longer and quite frankly, she seems pretty bent out of shape about it. Here is the sum of two of her tweets:
“To the fans in Chicago Detroit & Hamilton I hope you can forgive me, as it is nearly impossible for me to forgive myself. Im [devastated] & sad. It will hopefully heal as soon as possible, I hate this. I hate this so much. I love you and Im sorry.”
Poor grammar or no, that’s a seemingly sincere message, which means that Gaga will likely make good on the postponement rather than eventually cancelling those tour dates. However, for fans who bought tickets for this week’s shows, I’m sure the announcement is still a disappointment. The tour dates that have officially been postponed thus far are both dates in Chicago on February 13 and 14, a date in Detroit on the 16 and a tour date in Hamilton on the 17.
