The singer, who had to cancel her ‘Rock In Rio’ performance due chronic pain, has had to make another professional concession.
And this time it’s her ‘Joanne’ World Tour.’
The trek, which had been playing without a hitch in the US, today sees its European leg – due to start next week – postponed because of the singer’s condition.
It’s now been rescheduled to early 2018, while the next North American leg will continue on as planned this November.

Live Nation’s Full Statement On Postponement Of ‘Joanne World Tour’
Live Nation confirmed today the European leg of Lady Gaga Joanne World Tour Concert has unfortunately been postponed until early 2018. The six-week European leg of the tour was scheduled to begin on September 21 in Barcelona, Spain and conclude on October 28 in Koln, Germany.
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 earlier today. Lady Gaga is devastated that she has to wait to perform for her European fans. She plans to spend the next seven weeks proactively working with her doctors to heal from this and past traumas that still affect her daily life, and result in severe physical pain in her body. She wants to give her fans the best version of the show she built for them when the tour resumes. Lady Gaga sends her love to all her fans across Europe and thanks them for their support and understanding.
As the tour is currently working on rescheduling the European dates, fans should hold onto their existing tickets pending the announcement of additional information once it is available. The second North American leg of the tour is scheduled to continue as planned.
Live Nation and Lady Gaga apologize sincerely for the inconvenience.
Gaga also offered a more personal message too:
We wish Gaga a speedy recovery.
It’s natural that fans will be disappointed, but her health ultimately comes first.
She may work with the vigour of a machine, but she’s a human being.
We’re rooting for her.
