Lady Gaga bids farewell to Auckland

Published: 7:56AM Monday June 11, 2012 Source: ONE News

Lady Gaga left Auckland this afternoon as she makes her way to Brisbane for the Australian-leg of her Born this Way tour.

The flamboyant pop star was spotted boarding a private jet wearing sky-high heels and black leather pants at Auckland Airport after her final concert last night where she was hit by a metal pole.

She was performing Judas in her final of three Auckland shows at Vector Arena when a backup performer accidentally dropped the pole on her head.

"I want to apologise," she told the crowd. "I did hit my head and I think I may have a concussion but don't you worry I will finish this show."

The star continued with the concert for another 16 songs, reported.

Lady Gaga's make up artist, Tara Savelo, also confirmed it on Twitter overnight: "Gaga has a concussion but she is going to be okay. She wants u to know she loves u. I'm taking care of her.cant believe she finished the show."

Lady Gaga was in Auckland to perform three concerts at Vector Arena as part of her Born This Way Ball world tour.

She landed at Auckland International Airport wearing a bright orange dress with white high-heels on June 5.

Earlier this week she took to Twitter to let her fans know that she was "having a blast in New Zealand".

"The last couple shows have felt like festivals. Just so free, wild, happy. What music is all about it," she tweeted.

But the tour took its toll on the popstar.

Gaga tweeted at around 2am yesterday: "Jet lag, WHY!?? I'm just a good girl trying to get rest before my recital tomorrow! Any Kiwi suggestions? @TaraSavelo is snoring. Jealous."

Low profile in NZ

The popstar announced her new album to world just before she took to the stage in Auckland on June 8.

As she prepared to entertain 10,000 fans at Vector Arena on Friday Gaga tweeted: "Exciting news little monsters! I've played my new record for my label and will be announcing my new Album Title in September! X."

The singer has kept a low profile during her stay at the Stamford Plaza Hotel.

Even the All Blacks tried and failed to meet with Lady Gaga this week.

All Black Ali Williams tweeted on Tuesday: "I have an idea? why doesn't @ladygaga come and do a training session with the @AllBlacks we teach her the game she teaches us to sing?"

And despite restaurants that would love to accommodate her she chose Subway instead.

"I woke up in the wrapper of my Subway sandwich this morning. Has this happened to anyone?" she tweeted.

The Born This Way Ball is Lady Gaga's first tour since the release of her album Born This Way, which has sold nearly six million copies worldwide since its release in May 2011.
