Lady Gaga has canceled 10 shows in the European leg of her Joanne World Tour because of severe pain, according to the tour's promoter. Live Nation released a statement explaining that the singer is "suffering from severe pain that has materially impacted her ability to perform live."
"I’m so devastated I don’t know how to describe it,” Lady Gaga said in her own statement. “All I know is that if I don’t do this, I am not standing by the words or meaning of my music. My medical team is supporting the decision for me to recover at home."
Lady Gaga has been open about her battles with fibromyalgia, a chronic pain condition which affects the entire body and could lead to chronic fatigue and mood issues including depression, in her Netflix documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two.
Lady Gaga, who previously postponed her European shows in September, was slated to perform twice at the O2 Arena in London, plus stops in Manchester, Zurich, Germany, Stockholm, Denmark, Berlin, and Paris. "I promise I will be back in your city, but for now, I need to put myself and my well-being first," she said.
