Lady Gaga on Monday postponed her concert at Montreal’s Bell Centre that night, pleading illness after performing in heavy rain Aug. 29 at Citi Field in Queens.

“To my beautiful fans,” Gaga, 31, born Stefani Germanotta in New York City, wrote on Twitter and Facebook, “I couldn’t be more devastated that I am unable to perform tonight. I sing this entire show live, and pride myself in giving it [my] all, but when I sang in the rain at Citi Field I got sick and have been pushing through. I am so sorry to anyone who had their heart set on seeing me tonight. I love you.”

Her next scheduled shows are Wednesday and Thursday at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
