Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Ball Tour Officially Canceled
On Tuesday last week, Lady Gaga revealed part of her Born This Way Ball Tour would be postponed. However, a day later, Live Nation confirmed that, because of a hip injury, the singer is canceling the rest of her tour for surgery and recuperation.
The “Born This Way” singer experienced a labral tear to her right hip, but based on statements previously made, this injury is a culmination of months of pain. Her condition has been so bad, apparently, she has finished stops on tour unable to walk.
A statement on the Little Monsters website read: "After additional tests this morning to review the severity of the issue, it has been determined that Lady Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip caused by strenuous repetitive movements in her performances. She will need surgery to repair the problem, followed by strict down time to recover. This unfortunately, will force her to cancel the tour, so she can heal."
The singer’s last show is the Montreal concert on Sunday. The North American tour, of which she performed 13 dates, began on January 11 in Vancouver.
The costs of Gaga’s cancelation are rather large, Billboard estimates. In fact, the music magazine tallies $25 million in just ticket refunds for the 22 shows she cannot perform. If she had completed the tour, they point out, the Born This Way Ball could have been in the top 20 highest-grossing tours of all time. With $125 million from its international run so far, it comes out sixth for 2012.
