Live Nation Global Touring has confirmed and reported that due to a case of synovitis, (severe inflammation of joints), Lady Gaga’s doctor has ordered her to postpone The Born This Way Ball performances in Chicago, Detroit and Hamilton.
From Lady Gaga:
“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.”
– Lady Gaga
The postponed performances are as follows:
Feb. 13 & 14 – Chicago, IL - United Center
Feb. 16 – Detroit, MI – Palace of Auburn Hills
Feb 17 – Hamilton, ON – Copps Coliseum
Additional Lady Gaga Born This Way Ball performances are expected to proceed as scheduled. Fans holding tickets to the affected performances are advised to retain their tickets pending confirmation of rescheduled dates. Refunds for the postponed performances if required will be available at point of purchase.
