Lady Gaga has announced that she’s canceling the 10 remaining dates of the European leg of her Joanne world tour due to health issues.

The singer’s team made the announcement through a statement shared via Gaga’s official Instagram and Twitter accounts. “Unfortunately, Lady Gaga is suffering from severe pain that has materially impacted her ability to perform live,” the message read.

In a second statement, also shared through her social media, Gaga apologized to her fans who had “so patiently” waited for her return to Europe, after the singer had to postpone the concerts in the old continent back in September 2017, precisely because of the same health problems.

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

In addition to canceling her concerts in Europe, which included stops in cities like Manchester, Paris and Berlin, Gaga has also cancelled her performance in Rio de Janeiro.

The 31-year-old singer, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, suffers from a disease called fibromyalgia, a chronic muscle pain disorder, often accompanied by fatigue, headaches and insomnia.

In the past, Gaga has opened up about her battle with fibromyalgia. “I’ve always been honest about my physical and mental health struggles. Searching for years to get to the bottom of them. It is complicated and difficult to explain, and we are trying to figure it out,” Gaga said after being hospitalized in Rio last year.

“As I get stronger and when I feel ready, I will tell my story in more depth, and plan to take this on strongly so I can not only raise awareness, but expand research for other who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference.”
