Lady Gaga apologizes to fans after having to cancel her final gig on her Chromatica Ball tour due to adverse weather.
The 36-year-old singer was playing in Miami on Saturday evening when a major tropical storm came, forcing the event to be cancelled owing to safety concerns among the lightning.
Lady Gaga sobbed as she taped a video for her fans, saying, ‘Hi everybody, thank you so much for coming to the Chromatica Ball.’
‘We tried very hard to finish the show in Miami tonight, but we couldn’t because even after the rain stopped, there was lightning striking right down to the ground, so close to us.’
She went on to say that while she was trying to be a “hardcore nasty b***h,” she had to make the “responsible” decision to halt the show for everyone’s safety.
‘I don’t know what I would do if anything happened to anyone in the audience or any member of my crew, band, or dancers,’ Gaga, actual name Stefani Germanotta, continued.
‘So I’m sorry we didn’t get to do the epic Rain On Me performance in the rain, but what’s more important to me is life.’
The Shallow actress continued, “It took so much to come back to a point where I could perform and be healthy,” but she had to make the “healthy decision” not to continue with the play.
‘I’m sorry I couldn’t finish the show it was too dangerous the lightning was being unpredictable and changing moment by moment, I love you,’ Gaga said in another selfie, holding a bouquet of roses thrown into the platform by a fan. (sic)
“Look, I’ve been nicknamed “mother monster” by some of you for years, but deep down I knew it was better to keep you safe. I appreciate your confidence in me.
It took a while for me to recover, but I was able to say that this tour was the best of my life and that I will always treasure this memory.
I wanted to sing “rain on me” for you in the rain, of course. I believe in some way I knew this day would come, and I want to express my gratitude to you, my dancers, my band, the entire team, and everyone in my family and friends. “I’d prefer be dry, but at least I’m alive,” I said.
