Lady Gaga has left fans devastated and in tears after cancelling her Las Vegas show with just 20 minutes notice.
The Poker Face singer took to Instagram and Twitter to share a snap of herself hooked up to a breathalyser and an IV, revealing: “I’m so devastated I can’t perform tonight for so many people who travelled to come to see me.”
She added: “I have a sinus infection and bronchitis and feel very sick and sad I never want to let you down.
“I’m just too weak and ill to perform tonight. I love you little monsters I’ll make it up to you. I promise.”
Fans quickly took to social media to share their disappointment with many wondering why it took Gaga so long to make the decision.
“I came to Vegas for the 11/6 Enigma show, which was cancelled as we were in the GA line to enter the venue, and I am still devastated over it,” confided one fan who added that “everyone around me started crying” when it was cancelled. According to the Sun.co.uk.
A thread: I came to Vegas for the 11/6 Enigma show, which was cancelled as we were in the GA line to enter the venue, and I am still devastated over it. I got the tickets in Aug. ’18 and have been looking forward to tonight, especially after a pretty difficult year. @ladygaga

She said she’d make it up to the European leg of the tour she cancelled and instead signed a Vegas contract

I waited for six months and flew to Vegas for this! I’m absolutely devastated and the only way to make this up to me is to release ARTPOP ACT II on streaming services immediately !!!

We flew 7000 miles to see her here after she cancelled our last 3 Joanne tour shows in the UK, we’re devastated. Only found out 20 mins before doors opened too, we were on our way there 😭

“I got the tickets in Aug. ’18 and have been looking forward to tonight, especially after a pretty difficult year,” she added.
“I started crying. The atmosphere went from 100 to 0 in 30 seconds, & it just got worse as reality started hitting more people = more sobbing. Crowd effect was in play.”
Another fan revealed that they “flew 7000 miles to see her here after she cancelled our last 3 Joanne tour shows in the UK, we’re devastated”.
It is unclear whether Gaga will be well enough to perform on Friday 8 November, the next date on her schedule.
Gaga is on a two-year residency in Vegas, It is not the first time the singer has cancelled tour dates. however, in 2018 she axed 10 shows in the UK and Europe admitting she must “put me and my well-being first”.
The cancellation comes after Gaga admitted that she and Bradley Cooper “orchestrated” their intimate Oscars performance.
