Lady Gaga emotionally revealed that her Chromatica Ball concert held Saturday night in Miami had to come to a halt due to a severe tropical storm.
The Bad Romance singer, 36, uploaded a two and a half minute clip to her Instagram, apologized to her fans and said, “We really tried to finish the show in Miami tonight.”
However, the star wanted to prioritize the safety of the public and crew when the lighting near the concert venue began to set in brightly.

In the emotional clip that the singer uploaded to her devoted 53.2 million fans and followers, Lady Gaga began by thanking those who came to the concert.
She said that “we really tried to finish the show tonight in Miami,” but the feat proved impossible because “lightning struck so close to us.”
After a short break, the Grammy Award winner said, “Look, I know I’ve wanted to be that hardcore bad b***h for a long time.”
“What I really want is also to be responsible and loving. I don’t know what I would do if something happened to someone in the audience, or to a member of my crew, my band, my dancers.’
“So I’m sorry we couldn’t do the epic rendition of Rain On Me in the rain,” she added with a touch of humor.

“And I hope you know that part of the reason I decided not to finish the show was because I’m healthy and it’s a healthy decision for all of you and for me as well.”
She then sent her love and safe wishes to the fans who came to her Chromatica Ball. “See you next time I’m on stage.”
