Lady Gaga is putting the European leg of her Joanne World Tour on hold due to chronic pain associated with fibromyalgia.
After pulling out of the Brazilian Rock In Rio festival last week due to similar pain, Gaga posted this update on her Instagram account.
She'll be taking time away - but hopefully will be back on the road soon! Her documentary "Gaga: Five Foot Two" premieres on Netflix 9/22/2017, maybe that will be enough to hold the european Little Monsters over until we get more news.
I have always been honest about my physical and mental health struggles. Searching for years to get to the bottom of them. It is complicated and difficult to explain, and we are trying to figure it out. As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness, but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference. I use the word "suffer" not for pity, or attention, and have been disappointed to see people online suggest that I'm being dramatic, making this up, or playing the victim to get out of touring. If you knew me, you would know this couldn't be further from the truth. I'm a fighter. I use the word suffer not only because trauma and chronic pain have changed my life, but because they are keeping me from living a normal life. They are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: performing for my fans. I am looking forward to touring again soon, but I have to be with my doctors right now so I can be strong and perform for you all for the next 60 years or more. I love you so much.
