Lady Gaga says she’s “heartsick” to postpone four shows after sustaining an injury that’s left her unable to walk. Her performances set for Feb. 13-14 in Chicago, Feb. 16 in Detroit and Feb. 17 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, have been postponed due to a case of synovitis, an inflammation of the synovial membrane in a joint or joints. Later she was reported to have suffered a hip labral tear, which may require arthroscopic surgery. The labrum functions as a washer in the hip joint to help secure the thigh bone in the hip joint. Long term suffering with synovitis can result in degeneration of a joint.
Gaga posted on Twitter to explain her condition, saying she injured herself during a performance a while back and her condition has worsened, leaving her immobile following Monday’s concert in Montreal. She had been hiding the injury from her staff, but can no longer perform.
“I’ve been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for sometime now, over the last month it has worsened. I’ve been praying it would heal”.
— Lady Gaga
The remainder of the “Born This Way Ball” tour is expected to continue on schedule, beginning with a two-night stand in Philadelphia on Feb. 19-20.
Makeup dates for the postponed shows will be announced later.
Lady Gaga has had some ups and downs in body weights which has been extensively documented in the gossip news. Extra weight is hard on joints — especially the weight-bearing joints, such as the hips, knees and ankles.
