AUCKLAND, New Zealand (AP) — Lady Gaga was struck on the head by a pole while performing in concert in New Zealand on Sunday.

The singer was hit 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 … cant believe she finished the show.”

Gaga’s New Zealand publicist, Bridget de Launay, said Monday she was seeking comment from tour organizers, adding that the Auckland shows were sellouts and a “huge success.”
