, Staff

After tearing the labrum in her right hip, Lady Gaga has cancelled the remaining dates on her “Born This Way Ball” tour. Gaga was scheduled to perform a pair of shows in New England, first at the TD Garden in Boston on February 27 and then at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on March 3. Refunds for the cancelled performances are available at point of purchase.

Lady Gaga’s hip injury will require surgery to repair the problem, followed by strict down time to recover. Before today’s announcement of the tour’s cancellation, Gaga postponed a handful of upcoming shows on Tuesday. “I’ve been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for sometime now, over the past month it has worsened. I’ve been praying it would heal,” she tweeted. Gaga added, “I hid it from my staff, I didn’t want to disappoint my amazing fans. However after last nights performance I could not walk and still can’t.”

The Born This Way Ball was Lady Gaga’s first tour since the release of her latest album, 2011’s Born This Way. The album, which follows her back-to-back Grammy Award-winning albums The Fame Monster (2009) and The Fame (2008), was co-produced by Gaga with an array of producers including RedOne, Fernando Garibay, DJ White Shadow, Jeppe Laursen, Robert John “Mutt” Lange, Massachusetts native Clinton Sparks and more. It features hit singles “Born This Way”, “Judas”, “The Edge of Glory”, “You and I” and “Marry the Night”.
