Lady Gaga had announced this past Tuesday that she would have to cancel her Born This Way Ball, which, as reported earlier, included personal therapy sessions held for her little Monsters, due to an injury. The sold-out concert series would have had 22 more shows, and the estimated total just in refunds according to Pollstar data is around $30 million. Considering that this number isn’t including potential losses from other sales (e.g. merchandise, food, etc.), the amount could be substantially higher when including the losses of the venues.
Gaga will be eventually receiving surgery for the labral tear to her right hip. We wish her a speedy recovery.
30 million seems to be a magic number for the pop star, and it’s not all bad.
