Pop singer Lady Gaga has announced that she will be postponing her two Chicago shows and one each in Detroit and Ontario.
Live Nation Global Touring says Gaga is suffering from “severe inflammation of the joints” known as “synovitis.”
In a statement, the “Born This Way” singer said, “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.”
The Chicago shows were scheduled for this Wednesday and Thursday. Re-scheduled concert dates have not yet been released.
