Lady Gaga is a 'tough girl on the mend' after tour postponement

Lady Gaga is "slowly coming back to life" after having to postpone part of her world tour due to her ongoing struggle with chronic pain.

The Poker Face hitmaker kicked off her Joanne World Tour in August (17), but was forced to pull the European leg of the trek last month (Sep17) to seek treatment for fibromyalgia, an illness she has battled for years, but only went public with in September (17).

The singer has been keeping fans updated on her wellbeing via social media, and on Thursday (12Oct17), Gaga revealed she was gradually bouncing back.

"Slowly coming back to life," she captioned one Instagram photo of herself wearing sparkly shorts and boots with a fur-lined long coat.

Alongside another, she added, "Tough girl on the mend."

Gaga has been spending her down time in the recording studio and working on new music has worked wonders for her health.

"Nothing like studio therapy...," she wrote beside a photo taken behind the soundboard. "Had so much fun in the studio..."

The images were posted hours before Gaga announced the rescheduled dates for her European tour, which will now begin in Barcelona, Spain on 14 January (18).

In the meantime, she is gearing up to return to the road in North America next month (Nov17).

Gaga had initially been due to launch the next leg of her trek in Indianapolis, Indiana on 5 November (17), but she will now get back onstage on 3 November (17), when she will perform a make-up date in Montreal, Canada after previously axing her show there on 4 September (17) due to illness.

Meanwhile, the singer has brought forward the first of two upcoming shows in Uncasville, Connecticut, rescheduling the concert from 10 November (17) to 9 November (17). Her second date in the city remains on track for 11 November (17), meaning she will now have a day's rest in between gigs.
