Lady Gaga has been forced to cancel all the dates on her current US and Canada tour as she undergoes surgery.

The singer had previously postponed a number of shows on her Born This Way world tour in Chicago however, all other future performances were expected to go ahead as scheduled. That was until a message was posted on Gaga's official website last night (February 13) which stated that the pop star would require surgery for her injuries and will no longer be able to perform live until she has recovered.

The statement reads: "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."

Talking about her tour sustained injuries earlier in the week, Gaga said: "I am completely devastated and heartsick. I've been hiding this injury and pain from my staff for a month, praying it would heal, but after last night's performance I could not work. To the fans in Chicago, Detroit and Hamilton, I hope you can forgive me as it is nearly impossible for me to forgive myself right now. I would do anything for you. I will hopefully heal soon as possible and be at 500 per cent again, which is what you deserve."

Taking to Twitter, Gaga added: "It will hopefully heal as soon as possible, I hate this. I hate this so much. I love you and I'm sorry."

Lady Gaga is expected to release her third album, 'ARTPOP', later this year.
