Gaga, who brought the Joanne tour through SLC in December, has been fighting a long-time battle with Fibromyalgia which is a disorder that causes musculoskeletal pain. Doctors are still unclear as to what causes Fibromyalgia or how to treat it.
Her struggle with chronic pain was a key piece of her Netflix documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two.
Hopefully with the right care and enough time, Lady Gaga will be back on her feet. She ended her announcement letter with this:
“I love this show more than anything and I love you, but this is beyond my control… I promise I will be back in your city, but for now, I need to put myself and my well-being first.”
