Her '28 trucks have been detained by the French government'
Lady Gaga has hit out at the French government after they “detained” her equipment and arrested two of her entourage ahead of a gig in Paris last night (December 19).
Writing on Twitter.com/Ladygaga, the singer said she had been told her gig at Paris‘ Bercy venue would not be allowed to go ahead due to heavy snowfall in the city.
“All 28 of my trucks for the Monsterball were detained by the French government,” Gaga wrote. “Two of my employees were arrested trying to get into Paris so we could perform. I am furious and devastated, its unfair to my fans and to me.”
Gaga added: “I asked if I could do a stripped version of show, but there would be no sound or power source, its all been detained. I’m so sorry, angry and sad.”
A further tweet from the singer explained that the cancelled show will now take place on Tuesday (December 21), while tonight’s show, also at the Bercy venue, will go ahead as planned.
Gaga had originally been due to perform at the venue on October 22 and 23, but postponed the shows due to “logistical difficulties”.
