Lady Gaga Posts Tearful Apology After Lightning Cuts Short Miami Concert – Rolling Stone
“I’m sorry I used my best judgment, it wasn’t safe,” singer says after “dangerous” storm abruptly ends Gaga’s final Chromatica Ball show
Lady Gaga shared a tearful apology to fans Saturday after her Miami concert — the final show of her Chromatica Ball tour — was first paused and then ultimately cut short due to a “dangerous” lightning storm in the area.
Gaga was 17 songs into her Hard Rock Stadium gig when she stopped mid-performance when a lightning storm swept into the area. “We just got to stop the show for a minute,” Gaga said, telling the crowd to “really calmly move to the inside area.”
The storm-induced pause lasted nearly two hours — with fans singing “Rain on Me” amid the torrent and loud thunder — but after fans finally did retake the seats, the weather amped up again and Gaga ultimately pulled the plug on the concert with six songs left on the setlist. “I’m sorry that we can’t finish but I don’t want to put your life in danger and I don’t want to put our life in danger,” Gaga told the crowd.
Gaga’s remorse over the abrupt end of her final Chromatica Ball show continued backstage as the singer posted a lengthy, emotional apology video to fans on Instagram:
