Lady Gaga Bails on French Concerts Due to Strike
Sacrebleu! It appears that Lady Gaga isn’t all-powerful after all!
The “Alejandro” singer has been forced to postpone a string of dates in Paris, due to strikes in response to President Nicolas Sarkozy’s plan to raise the national retirement age from 60 to 62.
An announcement on Gaga’s Web site reads,
“As a result of the logistical difficulties due to the strikes in France, Live Nation today announced that the Lady Gaga performances in Paris at Bercy previously scheduled for this Friday and Saturday 22 & 23 October are postponed until 19 & 20 December, 2010.
Unfortunately, as there is no certainty that the trucks can make it to the Bercy for this weekend’s shows, the Lady Gaga performances are now postponed. The December 19th concert will replace the 22-October show and December 20th concert will replace the 23-October performance.
Fans with tickets to the rescheduled shows must exchange their tickets or claim for refund from now through November 14th at their point of purchase. Tickets dated October 22 and 23 will not be valid at the new dates.
Lady Gaga apologizes to her fans for any inconvenience.”
Hopefully the Good Lady can keep her stage wardrobe refrigerated until the replacement dates.
