She'll be rescheduling for early 2018.

Lady Gaga has postponed the European leg of her Joanne World Tour due to severe physical pain, as she explained in an Instagram post today. She was scheduled to begin the next phase of her tour September 21 in Barcelona and conclude October 28 in Koln, Germany.

I have 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. 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 others who suffer as I do, so I can help make a difference. I use the word "suffer" not for pity, or attention, and have been disappointed to see people online suggest that I'm being dramatic, making this up, or playing the victim to get out of touring. If you knew me, you would know this couldn't be further from the truth. I'm a fighter. I use the word suffer not only because trauma and chronic pain have changed my life, but because they are keeping me from living a normal life. They are also keeping me from what I love the most in the world: performing for my fans. I am looking forward to touring again soon, but I have to be with my doctors right now so I can be strong and perform for you all for the next 60 years or more. I love you so much.

Gaga recently revealed she suffers from Fibromyalgia, which causes head-to-toe severe pain and has no known cause. As a result, she had to cancel her performance at Rock in Rio a few days ago, as well.

Gaga's still scheduled to finish the North American leg of the Joanne tour, with European dates being moved to early 2018.
