Live Nation Global Touring has confirmed that the remainder of the Lady Gaga Born This Way Ball performances have been cancelled.
After additional tests this morning to review the severity of the issue, it has been determined that Lady Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip. She will need surgery to repair the problem, followed by strict down time to recover. This unfortunately, will force her to cancel the tour, so she can heal.
Refunds for the cancelled performances will be available at point of purchase starting Feb 14, 2013.

Exactly one year ago Lady Gaga’s second studio album Born This Way was released officially. The album became the fastest-selling record worldwide in 2011.
The first single came out on February 11st, 2011, selling more than 1 million copies in just 5 days and hitting the first spot in 23 countries. After one year the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry announced that the single sold more than 8 million copies worldwide becoming one of the best selling singles of 2011.
PERSONAL NOTE: Born This Way is one of the best albums of all time, in our opinion. It promotes great concepts of love, bravery and equality. THANK YOU LADY GAGA. Thank you because with this record you saved so many lives, you inspired many of us to keep on living and you made us brave enough to face the cruelty of the world. Thank you for giving us a voice by spreading the message of love and acceptance. WE LOVE YOU!

Gary, a Billboard‘s editor, took some time to answer the questions that fans submitted to the magazine. A Lady Gaga fan emailed him and said that Scheiße should be Lady Gaga’s next single. He replied saying:
“Sheibe” does have a hooky chorus. Personally, I’d still prefer “Hair” as a pop radio single were another to be released from “Born This Way.” An Interscope executive confirmed to Billboard this week that he is not aware of any current plans for another single from the album.
