Lady Gaga Born This Way Ball Cancelled

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Live Nation Global Touring has confirmed that the remainder of the Lady Gaga Born This Way Ball performances have been cancelled including Mohegan Sun’s concert originally slated for March 3rd, 2013.

After additional tests this morning to review the severity of the issue, it has been determined that Lady Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip.  She will need surgery to repair the problem, followed by strict down time to recover.   This unfortunately, will force her to cancel the tour, so she can heal.

Refunds for the cancelled performances will be available at point of purchase starting Feb 14, 2013.
