Lady Gaga 'Born This Way Ball' Tour Cancelled Including March 13 Performance at the Tampa Bay Times Forum

Ticketholders to receive full refunds

Live Nation Global Touring has confirmed that the remainder of the Lady Gaga ‘Born This Way Ball’ performances have been cancelled, including the show originally scheduled for March 13, 2013.

After additional tests this morning to review the severity of the issue, it has been determined that Lady Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip. She will need surgery to repair the problem, followed by strict down time to recover. This unfortunately, will force her to cancel the tour so she can heal.

Refunds for the cancelled performances will be available at point of purchase starting Thursday, February 14, 2013.
