We’re sending our best wishes to Lady Gaga today as she revealed that she was cancelling the final ten dates of her Joanne World Tour due to health issues. The popstar took to social media late last night to share the news, stating that she was “devastated” about the decision but that it was beyond her control.

“I’m so devastated I don’t know how to describe it,” she said in a statement. “All I know is if I don’t do this, I am not standing by the words or meaning of my music.”

The cancellation affects shows in eight European cities — London, Manchester, Zurich, Koln, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Paris, and Berlin. This is the second time that the European leg of the tour has been affected, after Gaga had to postpone all European dates in September to early 2018 due to severe chronic pain. The popstar has promised to return to those cities, and make up for previously cancelled Rock in Rio performance in Brazil, in the near future. She last performed on Thursday night in Birmingham, England.

The artist has been increasingly open about her struggles with fibromyalgia and pain disorders, especially in her Netflix documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two. In light of this new development, we send our wishes for a swift full-force recovery.
