Lady Gaga shares tearful Instagram video after not being able to finish tour show
After a severe tropical storm in Miami, Florida, which consisted of heavy rain and lightning, Lady Gaga had no choice but to cut her Chromatica Ball Tour show short. Now, the singer has taken to Instagram to apologise.
In a two-and-a-half-minute IG Live – that has now also been posted as a video reel – Gaga is shown to be crying after thanking her fans for understanding. She also posted a selfie with makeup tear streaks whilst holding a bunch of flowers that a member in the audience threw on stage.
Introducing the video, the star says: "Hi everybody, [...] thank you so much for coming to the Chromatica Ball. We really tried to finish the show tonight in Miami but we couldn't because even when the rain sort of stopped, there was lightning that was striking right down to the ground so close to us..."
"I've always wanted to be that hardcore bad bitch but what I really want is to also be responsible and loving. And I don't know what I would do if anything happened to anybody in the audience or any member of my crew, my band, my dancers", she added.
In the caption of her selfie, she wrote: "I’m sorry i couldn’t finish the show it was too dangerous the lightening was being unpredictable and changing moment by moment, I love you. Look, for years some of you have called me “mother monster,” in my heart I knew it was better to keep you safe. Thank you for believing in me. This was the greatest tour of my life and I will cherish this moment forever—it took a long time for me to heal, but I did."
She continued: "Sure, OF COURSE, I wanted to sing rain on me for you in the rain. “I’d rather be dry, but at least I’m alive”—I guess somehow I knew this moment would happen and I am so grateful to you, my dancers, my band the whole crew everyone my family and friends. Safety first. Love you. Thank you for the flowers and the cheers and for understanding. Life matters".
Fans in attendance took to Twitter to share videos of the Miami show with one posting a video of Gaga on stage addressing the situation at the time.
