You NEVER would’ve guessed it!
According to Billboard, the singer was forced to cancel her Montreal tour date, on 9/4, because she was sick. A statement from Live Nation and Evenko stated that she was suffering from a “respiratory infection and laryngitis.”
“I sing this entire show live, and pride myself in giving it all, but when I sang in the rain at Citi Field I got sick and have been pushing through.” The Citi Field shows were right before the Fenway ones, which means she was pushing through the sickness as she played for Little Monsters in Boston.
On top of the Joanne shows, the “Diamond Heart” songstress supported Brian Newman by joining him onstage both nights for his late-night show at the House of Blues. I attended both shows, as well as the first HOB one, and her vocals were unbelievable — there was never a moment her sickness showed through.
The first female to headline Fenway Park definitely made her mark in the history books!
