Lady Gaga has been struck on the head by a pole while performing a concert in New Zealand. The singer was hit on Sunday during the third of three shows in Auckland.
Clips posted online show a backup performer accidentally striking Gaga with the set prop while removing it from the central stage. Gaga, holding a mock machine gun, staggers and rubs her head before briefly leaving the stage. She continued the show, part of a world tour.
Gaga’s makeup artist Tara Savelo wrote Monday on Twitter: «Gaga has a concussion but she is going to be okay … can’t believe she finished the show.»
Gaga’s New Zealand publicist Bridget de Launay said on Monday she was seeking comment from tour organisers, adding that the Auckland shows were sellouts and a «huge success.»
