After a severe hurricane hit Florida, Lady Gaga had to cancel the final performance of her Chromatica Ball tour.
As the star’s performance neared its conclusion, lightning started to hit near Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.
She instructed the 65,000 audience members to “very gently relocate to the inner area” as she said, “We simply had to halt the show for a minute.”
The show had to be canceled even though she had believed the storm would pass.
Later, the celebrity apologized to her followers in a sad Instagram message.
While still in her stage attire and wiping the moisture off her face, she stated, “We really wanted to finish the concert tonight in Miami, but we couldn’t because even after the rain stopped there was lightning striking right down to the ground so close to us.”
The Bad Romance singer, 36, apologised to her fans in a two and a half minute video clip that she posted to Instagram. She said, “We really tried to finish the show tonight in Miami.”
When lightning started to strike violently close to the Hard Rock Stadium, the celebrity decided to put the safety of the crowd and the staff first.
The Miami Dolphins play their home games at the Hard Rock Stadium, which only has a partial roof, therefore the game had to be postponed as a storm passed overhead.
“I don’t know what I would do if something occurred to any audience member or any member of my staff,” the performer said.
The singer then stated she would “cherish them forever” as she picked up a bunch of roses that a fan had thrown onto the platform.

Before the performance was called off, crowds of fans sang along to Gaga’s smash song Rain On Me while being startled by thunderclaps.
They eventually found their way back to their seats, but the concert’s organizers felt it was unsafe to continue.
Approximately six songs remained when Gaga announced the cancellation on stage, saying, “I don’t want to put your life in danger.”
Attendees of the performance claimed that Gaga was “obviously unhappy” about the cancellation.
One user on Reddit commented, “It was strange and incredibly sad when she came out and told us to go home.” She was obviously heartbroken, as was evident.
The Hard Rock stadium tweeted the following statement: “The Lady Gaga performance tonight was interrupted at 10:50 p.m. due to bad weather, including included lighting, for the sake of fan safety. I appreciate your patience.”
Before stopping in Sweden, France, the Netherlands, the UK, Japan, and North America, the Chromatica Ball tour started in Düsseldorf, Germany, in July.
The play, which included the songs Bad Romance, Poker Face, Born This Way, Edge of Glory, and Stupid Love, has received high praise for fusing dramatic set pieces with a continuous story about overcoming trauma.
It was a “hit-stacked presentation that also forges an intimate human connection,” according to The Guardian, and “a reminder that she’s one of the greatest living musical performers,” according to Rolling Stone magazine.
The tour was limited to 20 performances, with several days off in between to help Gaga manage her fibromyalgia.
Her previous global tour’s final 10 performances in 2018 were canceled due to the condition, which frequently causes her significant agony.
After the Miami event, she wrote on Instagram, “It took so much in my heart to come back to a position where I could perform and be healthy.
“I opted not to finish the performance in part because I am in good health. It’s the right choice for me as well as for all of you. I’ll see you again on stage because I adore you.”
