Heartbroken fans have reacted as Lady Gaga has been forced to cancel the remaining 10 dates of her Joanne World Tour on medical grounds.
Gaga’s Little Monsters were devastated and flooded the singer’s Twitter feed with well-wishes from all over the world, with some describing their heartbreak and others declaring that ‘when she suffers, we suffer.’
The Applause singer had been due to perform at London’s O2 Arena on February 4 and 8 as well as in Manchester on February 6, before playing other shows around Europe.
However, a statement from Live Nation has confirmed that ‘severe pain’ has meant she is unable to perform, resulting in the shows being shelved.
One fan took to Twitter to write: ‘Her health comes first and it always has to be that way.’
Another wrote: ‘But obviously her health comes first and hope she gets better soon. I love you.’
‘Lady Gaga has cancelled again and I’m so upset I can’t even talk,’ a third commented on social media.
So sorry to read Gaga is again in severe pain. When she suffers, we suffer. Her health comes first and it always has to be that way. Hope she takes good care of herself. We Little Monsters will always support her. Sending love & positive vibes, @ladygaga. xoxo #GetWellSoonGaga

‘Unfortunately, Lady Gaga is suffering from severe pain that has materially impacted her ability to perform live,’ the company said in a statement.
‘As a result, Live Nation and Lady Gaga are announcing the cancellation of the final 10 dates of the European leg of her Joanne World Tour.
‘Last night, with strong support from her medical team, Lady Gaga made the tough decision to immediately come off the road.
‘She is extremely sorry and deeply saddened that she cannot perform for her European fans, who have waited so patiently.
‘She is in the care of expert medical professionals who are working closely with her so she can continue to perform for her fans for years to come.
‘Ticket holders may obtain a refund beginning Tuesday, 6-February at point of purchase.’
As well as the dates in London and Manchester, the singer had been due to play shows in Switzerland, Germany, Sweden, Denmark and France before the end of the month.
This isn’t the first time Gaga has been forced to postpone shows for the sake of her health, after she cancelled the six-week part of the tour in Barcelona while suffering with ‘trauma and chronic pain’.
