Monday, September 18, came with an official announcement about the faith of the European leg of Lady Gaga’s the Joanne World Tour. Set to kick off later this week, the tour was officially postponed as the artist was reported as suffering from “severe physical pain” that comes in the way of her ability to perform.
Lady Gaga, Still Struggling with Her Health
Stefani Germanotta, better known as Lady Gaga, was set to embark on a European tour, part of her larger Joanne World Tour. This was set to take off on September 21, this Thursday, with a concert in Barcelona, Spain. It was scheduled to end little over a month later, on October 28, in Germany.
The artist was also set to perform concerts in several other European countries as well, including Italy, France, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Belgium, as well as Britain.
However, the faith of the European leg of the tour was left somewhat hanging as the artist was forced to cancel her Rock in Rio performance. On Thursday, September 14, the singer announced her withdrawal from the concert as she was rushed to the hospital in severe physical pain. Earlier this month, she also had to postpone a show in Montreal.

On Monday, Live Nation, the tour promoter, announced that “Lady Gaga is suffering from severe physical pain that has impacted her ability to perform. She remains under the care of expert medical professionals who recommended the postponement.”
According to reports, the European tour will probably be held sometime next year. The promoter also continued by saying that the singer-songwriter is reportedly planning to spend the next seven weeks “proactively working” with her doctors. She will be trying to heal from both this and her past traumas as well, the ones that affect her daily life.
Lady Gaga took to Instagram to say that she has always been “honest about her physical and mental health struggles” and that she’s long been working on getting to the bottom of them.

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.
Live Nation offered no new dates for the 18 concerts of the European leg. However, it did declare that the second leg of the North America is set and should resume in November, according to schedule.
