The news is even worse for Gaga herself. She apparently has a labral tear of the right hip and will need surgery, according to a statement issued by the Tampa Bay Times Forum. That means the soft tissue in her hip socket is damaged. It’s bad enough that she needs surgery.
The show hasn’t been rescheduled, but if you have tickets you can get your money back. If you bought tickets by phone or online through Ticketmaster, refunds are automatic. If you bought them at a Ticketmaster outlet, you have to go to that outlet. If you bought them at the Forum box office or sales office, you can get refunds there as of today. If you bought from a third party, you’ll have to work it out with that third party.
