As I said I think Lady Gaga is in a position fortunate enough to get a 'we are working on it, times are hard, I love you' message out - saying something without saying something. This 'her hands are tied' sounds like bullshit to me. I understand she can't say that it is cancelled - and because of album sales that are attached to the tickets doesn't want to - but she could say just... something. It is a shame for everybody involved. I know you know but album sales. They'll at least wait until every monster ordered their strap.
