A hip injury has caused Lady
Gaga to cancel the
remaining dates of her latest
tour. Live Nation Global
Touring said in a news
release Wednesday that
Lady Gaga will require
surgery to repair a tear in her
hip. She will then need a
recovery period which will extend past her current tour dates. The dates extend to March 20 for her “Born This Way Ball” tour and fans will get a refund.
Gaga explained on Twitter that she had hurt herself while performing sometime before Monday’s concert in Montreal. She had experienced some difficulties during that concert and cancelled four dates the next day. She wrote: "I hid it from my staff, I didn't want to disappoint my amazing fans. However after last nights performance I could not walk and still can't". Since that tweet, she has not posted on Twitter (as of 2-13).
A news release came out stating that she was suffering from synovitis which is an inflammation of the joints. She underwent tests and it showed she had a labral tear in her right hip. It also stated she needed to have surgery and strict downtime.
