WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A suddenly ill Lady Gaga postponed her concert at the last minute.
A sold out crowd gathered at Elliott Hall of Music in West
Lafayette to see Semi Precious Weapons, Jason DeRulo, and headliner
But after the two opening acts, a police officer came on stage to announce the sudden illness of the main attraction.
According to Lady Gaga's tour management, paramedics advised the singer to postpone the performance.
Excitement turned to disappointment as the thousands of concertgoers exited the venue.
Despite the change in mood, Gaga fans we talked to said they understand.
"I was angry, but people get sick and they said that the paramedics said that she shouldn't go on, so it's obviously not just a cold. I'm guessing it's something a little more serious, so I hope she is better by the 26th so we get to come back and see her," said Kim Kelley, who traveled from Terre Haute for the show.
"I didn't have class until 1:30 tomorrow, so I was just planning on having a great night, but I understand. Things happen and I hope Lady Gaga gets well soon and I'm looking forward to seeing her on the 26th," said Ariana Brooks.
"I was really surprised and when they first came out I thought they were joking, but these things happen, unfortunately, but I'm looking forward to Tuesday when she performs. And I still had fun at the beginning," said Sameeksha Jampani
The concert has been rescheduled for Tuesday, January 26th at
7:30 p.m. Tickets from the original show must be retained. They
will be required and honored at the show on the 26th.
People unable to attend the rescheduled concert will be offered refunds at the point of purchase. Show producers request that any ticket returns be done prior to the January 26th concert.
On Lady Gaga's Twitter feed the performer has expressed her sadness about canceling the event.
A post said, "I am so devastated. I have performed with the flu, a cold, strep throat: I would never cancel a show just based on discomfort."
Lady Gaga said on her Twitter feed that she had felt dizzy and was having trouble breathing, and that paramedics told her dehydration and exhaustion had made her heart-rate irregular.
The performer apologized multiple times on her Twitter feed for
canceling the show, and said she hoped her fans could forgive her.
We'll have more information regarding the new date as it gets closer.
