Lady Gaga sarebbe dovuta arrivare dalle nostre parti il 26 Settembre per l’unica data italiana del tour a supporto di Joanne, il suo ultimo lavoro in studio (qui la nostra recensione). Il concerto di Milano, però, salterà così come tutte le altre date europee in programma, a causa dei problemi di salute che affliggono da qualche tempo l’artista, che ultimamente ha comunicato di essere affetta da fibromialgia. A quanto pare le 18 date cancellate verranno recuperate a inizio 2018, stando a quanto comunicato dal promoter Live Nation. Qui in basso il messaggio diffuso oggi da Lady Gaga:
I have always been honest about my physical and mental health struggles. Searching for years to get to the bottom of them. It is complicated and difficult to explain, and we are trying to figure it out. As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness, but expand research for others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference. I use the word “suffer” not for pity, or attention, and have been disappointed to see people online suggest that I’m being dramatic, making this up, or playing the victim to get out of touring. If you knew me, you would know this couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m a fighter. I use the word suffer not only because trauma and chronic pain have changed my life, but because they are keeping me from living a normal life. They are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: performing for my fans. I am looking forward to touring again soon, but I have to be with my doctors right now so I can be strong and perform for you all for the next 60 years or more. I love you so much.
