BARCELONA – Lady Gaga will resume the European leg of her “Joanne World Tour” in January, kicking it off in the northeastern Spanish city of Barcelona after having postponed performances due to illness, promoters confirmed on Friday.
Concert promoters Live Nation said that the tour had been completely rescheduled for 2018.
The tour will start in Barcelona on Jan. 14 and 16, before heading to other major European cities as originally planned – Milan, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Hamburg, Birmingham, London, Manchester, Zurich, Cologne, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Paris – and then wrapping up in Berlin on Feb. 23.
The pop star, who was last month forced to abandon concerts planned in Europe, will complete the North American leg of her tour in November and December as scheduled, before going on to perform at the new European dates.
The singer said in September that she was “suffering from severe physical pain that has impacted her ability to perform,” and would therefore have to “wait to perform for her European fans.”
She said she would be spending the weeks that followed working with doctors in order to recover.
Tickets bought by Gaga fans for concerts that were canceled will be valid for the new dates.
Until Nov. 12, refunds on tickets will be available at the points of sale through which they were purchased.
