Lady Gaga Show At BB&T Center Cancelled
FT. LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami/AP) – Fans of Lady Gaga who have tickets for next month’s concert at the BB&T Center in Sunrise won’t be gaga over this news – the show has been cancelled.
Lady Gaga was forced to cancel the March 15th show, along with the rest of her tour dates, due to a hip injury.
Ticket holders will be able to get refunds from their point of purchase.
Lady Gaga postponed four dates on Tuesday after experiencing difficulties Monday during her concert in Montreal. The singer’s show is high energy with non-stop dancing. She explained to fans on Twitter that she’d hurt herself while performing some time ago.
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”.
Gaga has not tweeted since.
A news release announcing postponements Tuesday said the 26-year-old singer, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, was suffering from synovitis, an inflammation of the joints. She underwent tests Wednesday morning that showed she had a labral tear in her right hip, however. The labrum is a layer of muscle that helps holds the ball-shaped hip joint in place. The news release says the surgery will require strict downtime.
The tour, in support of her second album “Born This Way,” began last April in Asia and was one of 2012’s highest grossing.
Pollstar reported the tour made more than $161 million in 2012 with an average attendance of more than 31,000, making it the fifth-highest grossing tour.
